Jamie and some of the others have got the wrong end of the stick about this thread

I was posting it to say about my approach to the guy taking pictures and how in the end it turned out fine, we both got on like a house on fire.

I didnt approach him with arrogance, just a quite word and we didnt fall out.

I told the organiser of the show , which was on private land on a farm, about the website poaching girl and she was very annoyed and said it was way out of order. the person should have approached the organiser to check if it was allowed etc , also did that person have a record check CRB to take pictures of under 16 year olds and insurance in case of making a horse bolt etc, these are what we have to have now including public liability and employers liability

I get press all the time coming to shows and have no problem with them, I do the same submitting pictures to newspapers

a few people I have talked to at shows taking pictures have come and worked for me .

...just like you giving away free pics to BBC Wildlife mag!

That's the pot calling the kettle sooty!

It's just a bit of competition - get used to it.

Quote: but we pay for the privalage some times three figures at big events forthe rights to sell images

Wow! The only phrase I can really think of goes along the lines of 'more fool you'! PAYING to sell pics of someones event (thus giving them publicity), f**k that!! They should be paying you!

Sam...stop being silly. Paul pays for access rights and then sells the images to competitors. It's a standard practice and I suspect you well know it is.
