    I had a photographer shit on me, so I have an extra pass for a photographer. The show is January 13-15. I can probably get the press pass switched over to someone else, as the people who run that show are very accommodating. You can share a hotel room w/ me (as he no longer will), I'll pick you up from the airport and drop you back off, and any food you need is on me. All I ask is for a couple of your shots for my site. You don't need to promote me, but if you do I'll have business cards made up for you. I just ask that you don't hand out business cards of your own, as it could get me in trouble with the show. I just need 2-3 shots from each press conference you cover, and you will receive full credit for them on the website. Also, any literature you pick up at the show is yours to keep. Some of the kits sell for up to $100 each (like the ZR1 Corvette, etc), so if you want to sell them, it's up to you. If you are interested, PM me. I'd prefer a flight in in the early afternoon on Saturday the 12th, and a departure in mid to late afternoon on the tuesday the 15th. I cannot offer much in the way of compensation, as I'm trying to launch a business on a shoestring budget, but if you have some frequent flyer miles to kill and want to get into the NAIAS, I can help you out. It's a great chance to meet many people in the industry, it's a great event, and they have all the catered food and beer/wine you can eat/drink. Plus you have nearly full access to all the cars, which is something most people never see. Let me know if you are interested, because I do need to take care of some things on my end if you are going to come. I only have one opening, and it came as kind of a surprise. I hope one of you can benefit from it.

    I hope so. I'm not looking for a pro (as I can't afford that), just someone looking for an opportunity to expand their portfolio who can take a decent photo and doesn't mind getting into a mosh pit of other photographers for a good shot of a new car (as I'll be having the site updated hourly after each press conference).

    It really is a killer time. I'll never go to the public show. I don't have to buy a ticket, there are no crowds, you can get to all the cars, everyone for the most part is respectful of you shooting cars, really good food for free, free beer. What's not to love?

    shit, i have plenty of FF miles, tons of time off of work, plenty of hotel miles, a camera (duh), and wouldn't have any problem giving you all of my shots.

    i just think i would feel completely out of place there for some reason. :o

    dammit people, someone take this. I mean, if no one does, it'll save me some coin, and I'll have a hotel room to myself, both of which are definite perks, but I want more shots for my site. But I need to know by tomorrow at the latest so I can arrange things.

    I wonder if you'd get any more responses in the OT forum :hs:

    It's a great opportunity but such short notice.

    it's in here because I want someone w/ the ability to take an actual photo. I'd rather not host someone who's going to bring a little Powershot or Coolpix who cannot compose a shot for shit. If someone doesn't jump on this by the end of the day, I might throw a thread up in the main forum. Also, I don't need someone else. I just have an opening, and thought someone in A&P could benefit from it.

    :werd: I get that.. I just know that there are a few photographers that spend more time in OT than in here, so you might find someone worth it :) Good luck
