NRA Convention, Can I Be The Official TGC Photographer?

Post by mekender » Tue May 04, 2010 6:10 am

I am working on getting a press pass, can I be the official forum photographer for this event in order to do that?

If i can pull it off, I promise to take literally hundreds of pictures and can send them to anyone that has a want for them or I can put them up on photobucket.

Looks like there will be a pub meetup Saturday night and then I plan on hitting the floor on Sunday.

Go get credentialed at the "Press Box" and take pictures, wear a big NRA Media badge/pocket. Take pictures, rub elbows with other bloggers, have fun.

Make up some business cards to pass out with your name - either real or screen, and The Gun Counter name and url.

Go for the gusto.

Emailed the press contact this afternoon, hopefully I can pull this off.

Either way, I am still considering attending the blogger dinner Saturday night and then the convention on Sunday.

My press passes are waiting for me at the will-call booth according to the email my wife just read me.

Do we have any TGC shirts that I could wear?

I am for sure going to pass on the forum info to the bloggers I meet at the dinner on Saturday.

I am also going to do my damnedest to get my photo taken with Gunny and with Uncle Ted.

I might be going up as well - as I'm only a couple hours away.
