Great news Eternals!


This year we are moving VIP badge pickup to room L508 in the Marriott. Now you will be right smack dab in the middle of the convention. Better yet, you won’t have to fight the crowds in registration. VIP badge pick up will open at 3:00 pm on Thursday.

This year Dragon*Con will host a professional photographer for the fans!

Located in the Marriott Marquis, Imagez Photography will have an assortment of sci-fi/fantasy themed backgrounds for you and your friends to take your commemorative photograph against. Using the same technology as the movie industry for "green screening", backgrounds are only limited by your imagination. Expect to see sci-fi, movies, comics, gaming, steampunk, and more. In addition to the Green Screen set, we will also have a wall-size 3-D Dragon*Con logo.

Ninh T. Chau is the Owner of Imagez Photography (Atlanta-based full service photographic company). He is a graduate of the prestigious Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and former lead photographer for the Walt Disney Company. NTC’s extensive experience in event photography makes him the premier choice in Atlanta and surrounding cities. Known as "the photographer to the stars" for his lengthy list of celebrity clients, NTC can often be seen at the next "big deal."

Cost: 1st print (6×8) is $25 (comes in commemorative 25th anniversary Dragon*Con folder). Each subsequent print is $15.

Photo pick up: Same-day print pick up. Digital images (optional) are also available on flash drives at additional cost.

Imagez Photography uses only the best equipment to offer superior quality images and prints. Our commitment to quality service is unmatched. Seeing is believing, so check us out!
