    Do these same principles apply for sports photography? I have always wondered how to get a press pass to a sporting event and get the real good shots.

    Hi, I’m only 12 years old and I’ve become really interested in photography after winning a few competitions one of them earning over Œ£2,000 for charity but I just wanted to know if there was any advice you could give me in what to do under the circumstances of my age?This is one of my favourite photos”_My Flickr

    Coming from a smaller country with not that much of worthy premiers and other events with celebrities i have always wondered if some of these events are open to the public? Like a movie opening? Can i for instance travel to London and photograph at the red carpet?

    Once you are signed with an Agency, how do you get Credentials for the events? Are they given to you by asking, or is it something you have to earn over time? I just started working with Splash NY and I am trying to expand myself to more events.
