    NDP?

    Invitation only? Mainly for press photographers?

    I'm just guessing.

    Default Hi

    I think there are some invited individuals too. Guess you'll need to have a very strong portfolio before they will even think of you. Those are probably full time photographers or free lance with many years of experience, and of course very impressive gears.

    NDP shooting is no joke, it's a real tough job. Guess newbies like me shouldn't even think of shooting it.

    Better idea. Go home. Turn your tele on. Record the thing on video. Then go through the thing, pause when necessary, and shoot what you want off the tele. Works a treat.

    Well, I can tell you one example though it's probably not all that there is. My friend did some shooting for NDP. He's from the SAF and he was in SAFRAPC.

    ndp photogs. Some are the organising formation's people. The rest are photogs from the various press, mainly SPH. There's quote on the number of passes, so i doubt u can get a pass. Due to idiots who spoil the show. There was one, an official photographer from Straits time. He stood in front of the march past to take a photo, screwed it up, cos they had to SLOW DOWN to avoid crashing into him. was..... very embarassing.

    You know, I've always reckoned there was a reason it was called a press pass. You know, because it's for the press?

    Otherwise they'd have called it the Tom Dick and Harry Freeloader Joyrider pass.
