PHOTO-SHOOTS

Get your picture taken with your favourite stars by a professional photographer at London Film and Comic Con.

A real genuine keepsake to remind your of your day when you got to meet a favourite actor or actress. Photo Sessions take place early in the day to allow enough time for the photos to be developed so you can then take them away before you head home.

Each guest taking part in photo ops will be assigned one session per day, or one session over the weekend depending on demand, you can check which days when you pre-book your photo tickets but photo shoot times will not be released until nearer the event. Photo tickets can be brought on the day.
