hey,
Was thinking of taking my camera to the next Liverpool match I go to, but was wondering if there's any issue with that?

Always see plenty of compacts at Anfield, but I would expect anything remotely resembling a professional camera to be a big no no.

to be honest, the photo pass system at big games is the most corrupt back handed pile of poo I have ever heard of.

Does that mean he has a chance as long as he pays off the right people ?

From experiance big match photography is all about who you know not what you know! if you want to get in on the big matches start small and work up,but trust me sometimes those press pits are no place for the weak of heart.

The rules are strict. We had two really good press photographers who had to stop posting their football photos on here and they even had press passes. You may get away with taking pics with a compact, but you cannot post your results on here.

To get apress pass for a Premiership game to need to licensed by the Premier League. So that means only the big agencies and nationals, or club photographers.
