The Gallifrey One Photo Studio is open throughout the weekend for photos with your favorite celebrities: actors, producers and other personalities. It’s a very popular part of the convention, and is an added value option: photos are available for purchase for nominal charges. The charge includes free downloads of high-resolution images from the vendor site.
Gallifrey One’s Photo Studio will be moving to the Marriott Lobby Level ballroom in 2021. The new location, formerly the home of our “Program B” programming room, is being utilized to help with line control and to ease the foot traffic on the ground floor.
Convention Photo Shoots is Gallifrey One’s photo studio vendor. CPS handles all photography and all photo sales, which can be done prior to or during the convention, even on the day of the photo shoot. We strongly encourage you to pre-order your photo ops with our guests at the Convention Photo Shoots website. It not only makes things more convenient for you, but also helps us out tremendously at the Photo Studio.
In order to reduce lines and wait times, we only hold two lines open at any given time, for the current as well as the next photo op happening immediately after it. Therefore, we encourage attendees buying photos to show up to the Photo Studio line area no more than 10 minutes ahead of time. There is no reason at all to attempt to queue early: we will not sell out of photo ops for the guest, the photo lines rarely take more than 10-15 minutes at their worst for an active photo session, and it’s more convenient for you, our attendees, not to have to miss the rest of programming. As long as you arrive just prior to the photo session, our attendants will guide you (either to the staging area for the current photo op, or to the line for the next one, but no further). Attempting to hang around the lines before they form causes us traffic flow problems, so please remember to queue only within the 10 minute window prior to the photo op about to begin. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding – provided you’re not late, you won’t miss out!
The Convention Photo Shoots website also links to the downloads page for the last convention, and will have photo ops for the next scheduled convention beginning in the fall.
