what is required to get a photographer pass to sporting events?
Aug 19, 2006

Hi All,

I'm not a pro, but enjoy taking photos at sporting events, in particular Grand Prix racing, Formula 1, etc. I believe I'm finally good enough to sell my photos, and am wanting to get into the business.

What credentials do I need for passes so I can get up close & personal without a fence between me and the cars? I notice the pros are allowed up there and I'd like the same access so I can sell my photos as a freelance photographer.

Is this only possible by being affiliated with a magazine or newspaper? I suppose I need a portfolio that shows my work to a magazine?

Thanks for any help,
