HalCon 2016 – November 4th – 6th – Halifax

Hal-Con is just a few weeks away and McCarthy Photographic is back¬†once again to bring all Hal-Con attendees and cosplayers the latest in cutting edge green screen technology available today to transport you to an alternate universe or for that matter anywhere in space and time. ūüôā

This year at Hal-Con our booth will be in the corner of the main Scotiabank Centre Vendor Floor and will be hard to miss with our giant green screen background and full studio lighting set. We have added nearly 200 new background images this year and boast nearly 1000 in total to choose from including Star Trek, Star Trek TNG, Star Wars, Dr. Who and many, many more. Our booth will be open for the full show hours all three days.

We have refined our galleries and order processing this year and will even have TWO editing stations running when needed to provide faster service.

We are¬†partnered with Square.com to allow fast secure credit card processing on-site so you don’t need to worry about carrying cash, although good old cash will still be accepted. Only Canadian bills or gold pressed latinum bars though. Most intergalactic currency isn’t accepted by our bank, so you’ll have to exchange it when you arrive. ūüėČ

We will once again be offering on-site printing while-you-wait in 5×7″, 8.5×11″ and up to 13×19″ full colour prints and/or digital files for your own personal use.

We have been able to maintain our¬†very affordable pricing to the same as the previous 2 years with 5×7″ glossy prints priced for only $15 and 8.5×11″ glossy prints for only $25. Digital files are also available for your own personal printing use with a 1680 pixel file (5×7″ print sized) priced for only $25 and a 2640 pixel digital file (8×10″ print sized) priced for only $40. Digital files for print are not watermarked and you can print as many as you choose at your favorite print lab or at home. Facebook sized (935 pixel) watermarked images are available for $5 as an add-on to¬†the purchase of any size print purchase. These prices are based on up to 3 people posing together in a single group. For complicated multi-person composites, there will be a $10 surcharge per extra person or group. Please discuss your creative ideas with us while at the booth or feel free to email us in advance.

We’ve posted a gallery containing all our available background images¬†for you to preview before the con. Click HERE to¬†take a look and let us know if there’s something specific you’d like to see that we don’t already have covered.
