Eat breath LIVERPOOL!!!
I suggest hiring a few borneo natives with botox blow pipes to numb the right hand of misbehaving non official photographers.

Last wkend though I did have to ask a guy to get off the stage as other pgs are also trying to get a grp shot below stage.
Does not mean you just use a 12mm and so have a right to stand in front of everyone hor..
Need to know you may not b the Only official pg at an event, so be considerate..
The business of photography had becomes very hard and tedious.
The hobby of photography had become ugly and sickening.
Why can't hobbyists stick to shooting sunsets, stray cats, spiders and flowers? Which is really, the more enjoyable thing to shoot. Why must 'act pro' and join in for cheap thrill?
You know know many bloodly long years since I last shot a spider? And how tempting is to be able to relax and shoot macros for self enjoyment?

Anyway what kind of events is this?
Most of the 'money-events' are shot by real pros and there is only so much of a circle in them. They all recognize each other and have a mutual respect. They know who are the newcomers, who are the wannabes and who are the clubsnappers. Its best to be polite and considerate to everyone, other photographers, the guests (most important) and the other working people like the waiters and servers.
Just be considerate!
Just to share..
This happened last Sunday... 120812.
This was what we had done.
We gather those assigned photographers about 4 of them and briefed them. The event went well!
We were helping one another. Great! Three were paid and was a volunteer!
