Hi

I am an accredited Motorsport photographer in the UK and am following the Masters series to Daytona in November. Can anyone advise as to where I can get competitive public liability insurance in the USA?

Are there any "problems" I should be aware of when applying for accreditation?

Thanks

Daytona is pretty strict on making sure you are with a media outlet, however the historic are just a track rental so the Speedway might not even handle credentials, I don't know.

Do you have a work visa for the US?

You can come to the US as a tourist on holiday or any other flavor that suits you and go to Daytona to shoot. The track will not ask you for green cards, work permits, insurance certificates, or anything beyond who is credentialing you. Big brother really isn't checking up on stuff like that. I have friends from the UK that have come over to shoot races without requiring anything beyond legal entry into this country.

Depending who is putting the event together, you may need to go through them but I think you will ultimately need to get a legitimate media outlet to request a credential for you via the track. As long as you have a real media outlet making the request, you shouldn't run into any issues.

Of course the venue doesn't care because it is nothing to do with them. However it isn't "legal entry" when your reason for being there is work rather than tourism and you lie to the immigration dept. (Which is a federal offence).

I'm not saying the OP wont get away with it. I am sure lots of photographers fly to foreign countries on tourist visas to shoot weddings or modelling shoots and don't get caught. However some do get caught and get refused entry.... which can be rather expensive because you have paid for everything and then don't even get to enter the country (plus the airline that has to fly you home is going to expect you to pay for that extra ticket).
