About Me

Hello my name is Eric Yaras AKA the Fat Man. I have been a photographer for about 10 years now. My style is bright and vibrant photos in a natural light setting. I mostly work with cosplayers and fashion designers working on themed outfits. I actively avoid touchups and prefer to prefect the look before I take the photo. Please take a look at the photos on my profile as they speak for themselves.

I started my photography career as a astrophotographer. I would spend night after night with my camera connected to my telescope taking photos of the cosmos. After a while I started to take wide angle landscape astrophotography photos. This led to taking photos of models in space like settings. While I was doing all of this my fiancé started going to conventions to cosplay. I would join her and bring my camera to take photos of her and other cosplayers. While doing this I started realizing that cosplay photography was a extremely difficult due to the thousands of different situations that I would find myself in. From trying to find nice locations in a super small area to shoot at that would complement the cosplayers outfit, to dealing with very poor lighting conditions. Even with all of the extremes it would still be blast and I have been doing it for over 7 years now. Due to my fiancés success and the little bit that I contributed with my phots we started working as a couple with different fashion designers who worked with or were inspired by companies like Disney. So now I mostly work on private cosplay shoots and catalog shoots.
