    I was wondering if I could photography the Delray Beach Fed Cup event "on behalf" of TW... In other words take pictures and write a story on the forum... I am equipped to do it, I just am not "in" the tennis photography business, only wildlife (mostly birds in the swamps of FL) and amateur tennis photography... If all else fails I can retreat to the grandstands... :neutral:

    I need a "letter of assignment" aka "this is ____ and ____ will be doing ____ for _____...

    Sounds like someone is trying to get a media pass for the event. . .

    They would likely need a resume and background check before you could do anything for them on their behalf. TW could be held liable for things people do with the media passes they give out. Good luck though.

    Do you resent the idea that much? How does it hurt you?

    Hence the reason why I asked and didn't forge a letter like some people might do.

    I imagine most people running a highly visible retail company would be concerned about having a stranger who's not at all beholding to the company represent them at a public event. Not much upside potential, plenty of downside potential if you go streaking on one of the courts wearing nothing but your TW credential.

    Now I know you are serious, but that must've taken some thinking.

    I tried... No response. I chalked it up to just not seeing it, at least here I know it will be seen.

    Thanks... Those are with my old outdated camera too... With my new camera, I have a better keeper rate (not deleting as many pictures due to quality.).

    You're welcome. They are very good. I'm sure you'll make good use of technology. Even photos with the old technology often look great, with a different feel, even with black and white. Best of luck with tennis and school. Have fun. Thank you.
