So what does your press pass entail? Will you be writing up some professional review/story? Photos?
I have my airfare, hotel booked and they granted me a press pass and this girl who lives in Seattle also a photo pass. Melissa claimed that I did not request a photo pass. But I did. The girl they approved does not have her airfare. she is trying to figure out how she can afford it. Melissa sent me a email and said that this girl from Seattle was one of 3 photographers granted a photo pass. She is the sole person from the USA that was granted one.
My press pass gives me entrance to the conference and the festival both nights at no cost. I will write a review for my webzine. But since I was not granted a photo pass, I wont be bringing my big camera and lenses. Sad.
I did just email Melissa and ask if I could at least bring a small handheld pocket camera to take pictures of Viathyn.....
