View Full Version : Accreditation for Tennis

I've just started in Sports Photography and I recently applied for the media pass at the Rogers Cup this past month, which will be held next week. I received an email from the organizer last week, asking for people who will be receiving my images, and in question of my professionalism. I don't have anyone in particular that will be receiving my images, but I was wondering if there's anyone here who can offer me their accreditation. My images are top notch, and you'll get all the images, but you'll have to be somewhat registered professionally. Anyone want to take the offer?

The tough part of shooting pro sports is gaining experience to reach this level and having someone to mentor you through this progression and allow you to shoot with them now and then. To get credentialed for an event you need to have a reason to be involved and I'm sorry but getting experience will not get you in.
The photographers at the tournament are shooting for someone and need the access to get the images they are being paid to provide. If they let you in and you take a spot or do something that may seem right but ends up causing a problem is not something the organizers want to deal with.
My suggestion would be to start out shooting any highschool sport in the area and meet other working photogs, show them your work and hope it all leads to some bigger events.
