Point and shooter strikes again.

I was at the HSCC meeting at Brands standing at the exit of sterlings when i saw this point and shooter trackside with no media vest and no wristband,is it just me or does anyone else get p*ssed off when you spend a lot of hard earned cash(and the flexible freind)on your kit and try your heart out to get accredited and you see this sort of thing,maybe i'm taking it to seriously but i was fuming,so i ask him how he got to get trackside and he waved some sort of paper in front of me saying i've got this,what it was i haven't a clue but is there a funny handshake or a special club i'm missing here.

That's not anyone I have seen at Brands before. If it happens again, speak to the nearest marshal as we will then check his credentials and if he is not accreditied, we will have him removed by security. All photographers at Brands have to wear a wristband or tabbard. Sorry to hear you have had problems.

Yep it happens everywhere. Even at Le Mans I saw two kids with tiny cameras trackside at the test day.

The simple fact is that if they are there without the necessary accreditation, they are there illegally. That means they are not covered by any insurance and therefore the circuit would want to know immediately.

Most marshals would not want someone in their sector who should not be there, and will do their utmost to have the person removed. Don't forget that we are in direct contact with Race Control.

The thing is there were marshalls there,so maybe he had permission but what was he doing there without a media vest or wrist band.

It's not the size of his equipment that matters it is the lack of a media vest or wrist band that is the problem. Whatever was on that piece of paper worked.

As long as someone has the right vest or band on they could use a pin-hole camera if they wanted.

It's a waste of an accreditation though, especially if another 'proper' photographer is refused for it.

You cant judge everyone by their equipment alone. Just because someone might have for example a D70 & 120-300 lens that does not automatically make them a 'proper' photographer. A P&S can produce excellent images easily useable by magazines reporting on a race meeting. As long as it gets his job done (and they have the correct media passes).

The absence of a media vest or wrist band is still the issue here.

The only problem is if he had not signed on and therefore has no insurance cover etc. Apart from that who a circuit/promoter/media office etc choose to accredit is absolutely not the concern of any other photographer. Provided a photographer has agreement from someone and has signed on etc then they should be allowed to work unhindered and without comment from anyone else, whatever the equipement and appearance.
