What I love about fandoms, aside from the fact that I am a long-time geek/nerd myself, is that they are comprised of people who have found something in life that they genuinely enjoy and can get excited about. Excited enough to put effort into making costumes, excited enough to brave the ridicule and stares of the uninitiated without a care, excited enough to share that excitement with others.

Photographers should understand this. At it’s root it is the love of a thing so motivating that it drives you to active participation. It uplifts.

That’s my belief at any rate. YMMV.
