Press Pass - Any Help?
Mar 9, 2011

I am sure that this might annoy some people, in fact it may be illegal - I just want to know where I stand:

I am at University in London, and will therefore be around over the London 2012 Olympics. I was wondering if it is possible to obtain a press pass (with no real intention of selling my photos on) to allow me to a) circumvent the need to get apply for tickets and b) be allowed to take my gear into one of the best photography opportunities there is?!

Basically, do you need to state a publication you are working for? In this case I could ask my local newspaper back home if I could do it for them, or does it have to be a focused sports publication?!

Any help would be greatly appreciated - and I have photographed this type (albeit not the size) of event before, so 'not knowing what I'm doing and standing out' will not be an issue

Thanks!
