Greetings All,
Just a new child here.
My question is this.....I have my own photography business.
I am doing local little league sporting events and the photos are just for my own business
which is a digital sports magazine.
Do I need to go to my local government offices to acquire a official PRESS PASS, or
since it my own business can I make my own?
Thanks

If you're talking about Little League, I would think you'd go the Litttle League Administration.

It depends what you mean by press pass.

There are general press passes that are issued by reputable organisations such as the major Unions that cover journalism (in the UK this would be the National Union of Journalists). Not sure who it would be in the US. These are the cards you show to the police or other people to identify yourself as a journalist/photographe​r when covering news events. There are also worthless versions that people will try and sell you.

Next there are media passes for specific events/organisation. These are the passes that a league/event organiser will issue to photographers that are allowed to shoot at an event. For big events (NFL etc) these are only issued to togs who are shooting on behalf of a large wire service or newspaper/website. You would have to get a letter from the media outlet and provide it to the organisers in order to get a pass.

Having said that I doubt that your local little league team/league would require a pass. Either way it is the league/team that you should talk to.

If you are going to be advertising a product (your business) or making money from their image you should get them (their parents) to sign a release.

Talk to the league officials.

You would probably need the ok from the organization and then a release from the parents. That's how it works here any how.
