Important photo op information.

What is a photo op?
A photo op is a professional photo of you with the celebrity guest you choose. You will get a photo taken under ideal lighting conditions and shot with professional camera equipment. You will receive an 8×10” print of your photo printed on professional dye-sublimation photo printers.

Please understand that a photo op is not a meet and greet, it is a rapidly moving process. It is important you listen for prompts from the line attendants and the photographer to ensure you get the best photo possible.


Tickets Purchased On-line.
Please print out your ticket with the QR code (not your receipt) in order to redeem it at photo op sales and redemption during show hours. You may bring your ticket on your phone however please have it ready when you are redeeming. You may redeem your tickets at any time prior to your photo op (even for ops the next day). There is no need to rush to photo op redemption early in the morning, they may be redeemed any time throughout the day prior to your photo op.

Photo Op Schedule
The photo op schedule is posted at the top of this page once it is available. Please be sure to check the schedule at show time as well because all scheduling is subject to change. There will be a revision number at the top of the schedule (I.E. REV 1.2)  so you will know you are looking at the most recent version. The photo op schedule is subject to change at any time.

How many fans can be in one photo with one ticket?
For each ticket purchased you may have two adult fans in the photo. In the case of families, you may have two adults plus three children under 16. If you would like to have more than two adults additional ticket purchases may be required. I.E. If you would like 3-4 adults, 2 total photo op tickets must be purchased and used for that photo. If you would like 5-6 adults, 3 total photo op tickets must be purchased and used for that photo.

Day Specific tickets and group designations.
Tickets are sold on a day specific basis, you will choose the day you prefer to have your photo op when adding your ticket to your cart. Your ticket must be used on the day designated.  Some tickets will have a group designation as well, such as “Stephen Amell Photo Op Saturday A Group”. This means this is usable during Norman’s scheduled Group A photo op time on the day you chose the ticket for (these times will be displayed on the photo op schedule). Group designations are typically set up for guests who sell a very high number of photo ops so please try and be aware of the group you have chosen and only come for your op at that time. Please, if you have a group C photo op ticket, do not show up for the Group A time, it will only slow the process, increasing wait times for everyone.

Photo Op Queue
Queue for photo ops are created approximately 30 minutes prior to the start time of the photo op. Boards near the line entrance will list the current photo op line assignments or time for upcoming line assignments. Unofficial or fan created lines will not be honored when official lines are created.
If your line is not currently listed on the line assignment board or has not reached the start time for the line, please enjoy the rest of the show until the time has come for your line to start. Please do not stand around the photo op queue entrance awaiting your line to start as it can great congest the queue entrance and prevent fans who are trying to get into the queue for the currently running photo ops from getting their op.
Often times the photo op queue area will fill up entirely, please stay within your assigned line space. If you leave the lines for any reason, we cannot guarantee your place back in line. Only ticketed attendees or those in the photo with them are allowed in the queue area. Parents of underage children may wait in line with them. If you have special needs or are caring for a special needs fan, please speak with our line staff before entering the queue area.
Any confirmed line jumping will result in your being moved to the end of the line for that photo op.

Please arrive for your photo op 15-30 minutes prior to the photo op scheduled time, however do not arrive more than 30 minutes prior. Arriving too early for your photo op will congest the queue entrance and greatly hinder our staff in queuing fans!


Photo Op Room.
Upon entering the photo op room, please have your photo op card out and ready. Have all backpacks, purses, jackets, lanyards or any items you do not want in the photo off and ready to place on the table provided inside. You will not be more than a couple steps from your items.

Expected etiquette.
Please be respectful of the celebrity guests and other fans in line. Keep hands above the waist.
Be sure to listen for special instructions for each celebrity guest.
NO AUTOGRAPHS, PERSONAL PHOTO OR VIDEO RECORDING DEVICES ARE ALLOWED IN THE PHOTO OP ROOM.

In order to ensure the health and safety of the guests as well as other fans, there is absolutely no kissing the guests or asking to be kissed by them. Attempting to kiss a guest may result in the loss of your photo op without refund


General
Photo ops are not a meet and greet, they are a very fast process. In order to be sure that every gets their photo and that the photos turn out the best quality possible we ask that you listen carefully to prompts given by the in room staff as well as the photographer. You will be given a “READY” prompt by the photographer before he/she shoots your photo, so please pay attention.

Glasses
Glasses often glare or make it very difficult for the photographer to see if you blinked, so please try to remove them if possible. If you cannot remove them please be sure to try and tilt the glasses down away from the lights.

Blinks
Our photographers watch for blinks however sometimes they are missed. If when you pick up your print and a blink is noticed, please let us know immediately to ensure the guest is still in the room and we will put you back in for a retake.

Please understand that a photo op is not a meet and greet, it is a rapidly moving process. It is important you listen for prompts from the line attendants and the photographer to ensure you get the best photo possible.


After your photo op
Simply follow the brightly colored tape stripe on the floor at the photo op room exit. It will lead you to the print pickup area where you print will be handed to you in about 45-60 seconds. Once you have your print, you do not need to proceed to any more lines at the print pickup area unless you have a photo op Add-on such as a digital download or additional print. You may take your add-on ticket to the print station attendant or to photo op sales to have your add-on fulfilled.

Add-ons (digital downloads and additional prints)
Be sure to redeem your add-on cards or tickets after picking up your initial physical print. You may do so with our computer tech in the print pickup area OR at photo op sales. If you do not do this your digital download or additional print will not be made available. Due to the size of the image and the complexity of many email addresses, digital downloads are not emailed, however they are made available to download from our website. Once redeemed, they are uploaded within seconds of redemption and are available continuously via our simple web form and also can be downloaded as many times as needed.
