Sponsored Sporting Events

  1. I have a series of sports image that I took at a PGA event. The
    series of image were taken on a practice day, when cameras were
    permitted on the grounds. I was in attendance as a spectator, not a
    hired photographer. I would like to be able to sell prints of the
    series. I have spoken with the legal counsel at the ASMP and have
    already received some good advice. My question is about whether or
    not anyone would have ideas about how to get into touch with the
    PGA. I am interested in purchasing the rights to reproduce the
    images in a series of 5X7's through 20X24's. They would be only for
    resale, and not commercial re-licensing. I'm not necessarily
    concerned about the cost of purchasing the license, but rather how
    to go about acquiring the license.

    Also, if anyone has any first hand experience regarding shooting at
    sponsored sporting events; and then trying to sell the prints after
    the event, what was your experience like?
