That is a sensitive topic, at least for the convention staff.
A con-goer told me that he had to had to sneak pics of her at recent Dallas Comic Con because "They were complete Nazis on pictures being taken of her so I was sneaky with my phone until I got busted."; while he was able to have pics of Laura Vandervoort and Kevin Conroy (Batman's voice) with no difficulties. I guess it has something to do with the fact that Summer had photo op at her table with the attendees camera while the other, planned for a long date, guests had photo op scheduled with a professional photography company.
This guy also told me : "it was the same for Laura Vandervoort but not Kevin Conroy he was free all the way. It cost $10 to get Laura's." You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
Comment from a con-goer at Supanova Brisbanne 2011 (VIP ticket) :
Most pro photos are $40. You can't have photos with the guests at the table. It depends on what mood the Supanova staff are in at the party. We are told no photos, but sometimes we can have photos with the guests.
They didn't allow cameras at ECCC unless a guest had photo op.
However, I once snapped a photo of Wil Wheaton.... and didn't get busted. "My favorite thing about River is that she gets to be barefoot so much of the time. I don't like shoes very much." - Summer Glau
But this year Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo caught my attention because of the unusual guest lineup; while Summer and a few others are conventions veterans, it's much more unsual to see Lena Headey and Peter Dinklage at fan conventions. See for yourself:
Lena Headey, Sarah Connor of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, current star of Game of Thrones, will be appearing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to sign autographs, do photo ops, and participate in panels.
Other Terminator actors to appear are:
Michael Biehn, Kyle Reese in The Terminator, and the director's cut of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Corporal Hicks in Aliens, and Lieutenant Hiram Coffey in The Abyss, will be appearing at the Calgary Expo Friday and Saturday only.
The following were mentioned but no dates given for appearance:
Linda Hamilton, Sarah Connor of The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Robert Patrick, T-1000 of Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Peter Kent, rose to fame as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s stunt double, in no less than 14 films including: The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and Commando.
Another thing to remember is that autograph hunters will go up and get stuff signed while one of their friends tries to take pictures of it being signed so they can later use those photographs are COA on Ebay. But I am sure that events where you can buy a photo with the celebrity are ones where you can expect the staff to stop photos because they want your money.
Lat year, at Wizard World in Philly, you couldn't even see Patrick Stewart, they had him surrounded by walls so that no one could snap any photos.
That said, I'm going to Wizard World in Philly this year with my camera and my phone and I'm gonna snap as many photos of Summer as I can and I'll post them all here
