Photo Ops FAQs

What exactly am I buying?

A purchase of a celebrity PHOTO OP gives you ONE 8×10 glossy full color photo of yourself with the celebrity. Up to two fans can be in the photo on one ticket, with up to four fans in one photo (but you’ll need to have two tickets for four people). No more than four people are allowed in one photo op. If you use two tickets to have up to four people in your photo op, it counts as ONE photo op and you will only get one print. NOTE: You must have a convention admission pass for the day of your photo op in order to redeem your photo op ticket.

How long do I have with a celebrity in a photo op?

A photo op is to have your photo taken with the celebrity and lasts mere seconds. It is not an opportunity to have a “conversation” with the celebrity guest and giving the actors gifts, notes, cards, etc. is not permitted. Our celebrities have a very busy day with their fans doing meet & greets, on-stage Q&A, and autographs, generally all in the same day. They may also need to catch a plane or make another engagement. Please respect your fellow patrons in helping the photo op sessions to move quickly and efficiently.

Do I have to have an admission ticket to the convention to get a photo op?

NO. ADMISSION TICKET PACKAGES DO NOT INCLUDE PHOTO OPS — these must be purchased separately in advance or at the convention (if not sold out). NOTE: You may buy Photo Op and Autograph tickets before buying an Admission ticket, but you need an Admission ticket in order to use the Photo Op and Autograph tickets. Please buy an Admission ticket as soon as you can as we can never guarantee Admission tickets won’t sell out before the show. If you do not have an admission ticket for the day of your autograph or photo op, you will not be allowed to redeem your autograph or photo op ticket and you will not receive a refund.

How are photo ops done?

Some of photo op sessions will be called up in batches from the main theatre for the photo ops based on the “Ticket Number” on your PDF (pre-purchased in advance of the event and sent to you via email in PDF form). Other photo op sessions will be first come, first served. Please refer to the notes in your schedule. If it’s a photo op session that is called in groups, it will be noted on the photo op listing in the schedule.

If you are accompanied by/or accompanying a minor or if you are a caretaker or have a caretaker who will not be in the photo, they will be asked to wait across the room (but will still be in view) while your photo op is in progress.

Can I take a special pose?

Special poses have always been at the discretion of the celebrities. Physical contact of any kind is at the discretion of the actor, hugs are not guaranteed. Touching or pretending to touch the face, hair or forehead, floor poses and poses of sexual nature are not permitted. Please keep in mind that the actors, while recognizable to us because we see them on TV, films and on their social media pages (if applicable), we are strangers to them, so don’t do anything to them that you wouldn’t want a stranger to do to you. Please be respectful of the celebrity’s personal space.”

“Covid-19 and disease policy updates: State and local mandates change daily. We are and will continue to monitor any and all regulations that would affect photo ops (the need for masks/plexiglass or other safety measures) and will post any changes in our policy as soon as possible on the specific shows web page.”

Can I use a prop?

Props are ok unless deemed inappropriate by Creation or the actor. Items that pose a safety risk, putting on or taking off clothing items, require clean-up or may delay the photo op session (eg: handcuffs, water or nerf guns, projectile toys, confetti, flower petals, boas) are not permitted at any time. Every item brought into a photo op will be checked at the photo op line prior to your photo op. Please note that props are ultimately up to the actors and may be declined at their discretion.

Weapons policy: Please do not bring any weapons to the show. If you are using a prop weapon for a photo op or as part of the cosplay contest, please bring it to registration to get tagged. After your photo op or cosplay contest is over, please do not have your prop weapon on the convention floor at any time. Prop weapons without tags will not be allowed at any time.

How many fans can be in one picture?

The maximum number of patrons in a photo op with a celebrity is up to FOUR PEOPLE. If you purchase ONE photo op ticket (that includes solo, duos or group photos), you can include up to TWO fans (one photo op tix = up to two fans). If you purchase TWO photo op tickets, you can include FOUR fans in a photo (two photo op tix = up to four fans). We cannot, however, accommodate over FOUR fans in any one photo op. There are absolutely NO exceptions to this rule. Please note: 1 8×10 glossy photo is provided per photo op. Also, please note that personal photography is NOT ALLOWED at any autograph or photo op session. Photo prints and jpegs of your photo ops may be used for personal use only.

How many copies can I get of my photo op?

We supply ONE printed photo, no matter how many fans are in the picture. Click here for more information on how to order your photo in jpeg form. Photo ops are for personal use only and may not be used for advertisement or endorsement in any way.

How will I receive my photo ops?

Your photo print is generally available for pick-up one or two hours after the photo op session or, in some rare instances, the following day of the convention. If your photos were taken late on Sunday and are not available for pick-up before you leave, Creation will post on the website all the remaining photos as soon as possible after the event. You will be able to claim your photo(s) by CLICKING HERE and we will carefully protect and mail your photo to you within 2-3 weeks at our expense.

Can I give gifts to the celebrity at the photo op sessions?

No. Due to security considerations and guest concerns we can no longer facilitate the giving of gifts to guests at the photo op sessions. Please check the show website for addresses for where you can send gifts to. Creation is not responsible if the gift sent to the address provided is not accepted.

Where do I show up for my photo op?

PHOTO OP times and locations are included in the Schedule of Events, which is available for download on the website by Wednesday or Thursday of the week of the convention. Printed copies are also available on-site at registration. Sometimes PHOTO OPS sessions take place at the same time other activities are going on at the convention. Please make sure to note the time and location of your photo op, so you don’t miss it. Unless indicated in the schedule to wait in the main theater for your photo op, please go to the photo op location and queue up five minutes prior to the PHOTO OP scheduled time. Unless your photo op session is called by number, photo ops are done on a first come, first serve basis. If you have a special event (meet & greet, tour, etc) that might conflict with a scheduled photo op and/or autograph and the instruction to handle your conflict is NOT listed in the schedule, please go to registration BEFORE your conflict happens so we can help you.

Will photo op tickets be on sale at the convention?

Yes, unless sold out. Sometimes the price at the event will be slightly higher than the price on the website.

What should I wear?

Your photo will no doubt be highly prized and saved for years, so we suggest giving some thought to your wardrobe. White generally does not photograph well.
