    I have two valid media badges open. I'll offer them to anyone in OTAP that can make it. All I ask is for copies of whatever pics you take for use on my site. You will receive full credit for the photos on the site. I need to know asap so I can get things approved. If interested, PM me. I'll need your first and last names.

    Just thought I'd throw the OTAP peeps a bone...

    I didn't know that was the north american auto show. I always thought it was the detroit auto show! I've gone so many times, used to live a few hours from detroit. Man that thing is so effing awesome, even for someone like me who isn't too big into cars

    Free food, free beer, good times.

    I love the show. I'm very upset about the companies that have pulled out from the show...

    does this apply to anyone who posts in otap? or just those that have been around for sometime? an actual photographer with experience?

    because i live just 2 hours from Detroit and love shooting cars but im not really big on the forums or have much skill or have any great gear

    so feel free to ridicule me if this was to brazen of a request

    post some of your pics (feel free to pm them if you wish), and I'll let you know.

    And what kind of gear do you have? It's hard for me to get you in as a photog if you show up with a coolpix.

    I'd be intrested in going - I'd need to find a hotel or see if I can fly in and out in one day. (I fly Free). Let me check my calendar...know of any places that are cheap/free. :o

    Edit: I might have some family near the detroit area that could hook me up...I'll check flights.

    I dunno if you need to know my kit, I'd probably bring it all.... :o

    let me know. I need to know by the end of next week.

    As for cheap lodging, there is a motel 6 just off of I75 on 14 Mile. I'll be driving right past each day, and could pick you up as needed.

    Hey man, i filled the spots, but I want to make a suggestion to you.

    Throw a basic website together based on cars, post some of your pics, and submit it for media access. If you can do it in the next week or so, you could still get in. As long as you make it respectable and write a decent letter explaining you are new to the industry, are just getting started, and want to use the NAIAS as your springboard event, they'll probably give you a pass or two. it's how I got in a few years back...

    throw something together.

    post news. Sign up for auto news from prnewswire.com for quick, daily updates.

    Steal pics from carwalls.com and crop the carwalls logo off. They get all their pics from the manufacturers. They also have decent write-ups you can whore.

    You put in the work, and you could have a site built in a couple days.

    You can even build bullshit ads. Right click/save as some of the ads on Car and Driver or something and paste them on your site.

    If it's half-way decent and has some sort of content, they'll probably let you in.
