I have been shooting this event I want to cover again this year, but the place that has gotten me credentials has cut that department (they will take my photo's though)
I have tried industry magazine's and either I don't get a reply or I get they are already going to have their photog's there.
It's not the quality of my work, I have a strong portfolio in this area of interest.
The event media relations department is close to me, I have visited the office, they seem nice and want to help. But they are telling me I need a letter of assignment from a media outlet.
I can remember in years past reading people's passes and seeing "joe blow photography"
So what I'm wondering other than buying the girl at the office flowers(i'm not against that if it get me in)
Can I write my own letter of assignment?
Any other ideas?
