    Anyone know of a way to get a media pass? I tried to get one last year but the guy I was talking to fell through.

    The "OT Press Pass" would only get you an all access pass to the parking lot after security tosses you out of the race grounds. :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I honestly can't believe you people think that works at any event outside of local amateur events. It was made as a joke. :rofl:

    E-mail diff. magazines. Tell them you'll allow them use of your images, most people would go for that.

    Funny thing is, it's gotten me at the Fox, and tons of smaller venues. I've had the opportunity to shoot the Vans Warped Tour as well with it, so it works, though I had a hairy close call trying to go backstage at a Thrice concert because I need some stupid ass sticker on my pass to allow me into the concert. I simply told the dude I was stuck onto the assignment last minute and the previous guy dipped out and had the sticker.

    Sorry dude, you're a little late. Did you even go to the Sebring website and look on the media site regarding credentials?

    I thought this was gonna be a "Check out my Sebring pics" thread,

    and proceeded to get excited about the inevitable vwpilot thread of the same title, because his are always :bowdown:

    publications can be pretty stingy about press passes, especially at big races. While you are there, you represent them, so anything you do reflects them. They can't have just anyone representing them.

    Sebring and Le Mans are going to be fucking awesome this year, especially Le Mans.

    Have you seen the entry list?

    5 Audis
    4 Peugeots
    4 Aston Martins

    All in P1. Its going to be an epic race this year. Cant wait.

    I went to Le Mans in 2003 and 2006. Seeing Bentley take it in '03 was :bowdown: 2006 wasn't so great - except for the Diesel Audi R10, what a great sound :wackit:

    Is it your job to take photos of races?

    NIce shots... but it seems clunky to have all the other sports just randomly mixed into all your race shots...

    Yeah, going to take care of that soon. Redoing it now. I'm going to bag the sports stuff till I have enough to make a separate portfolio. Problem is, I lost most of my sports photos a couple years ago when I made a computer change. I had them on a separate drive and did not have a good backup system for them at the time and that equals bad things. Luckily my motorsports stuff was all backed up safe and sound.
