Re: What\'s a good rate for a marathon photographer
Thanks for all of your responses. It sounds like what's being offered to us is about right. I'll be happy to give it a go.
For those of you who have shot marathons do you have any tips?
Here are some thoughts after my experiences last year:
- Bring something to sit and/or stand on (for rest during waits and to shoot over others if needed).
- Use a monopod, tripod, or neither?
- Set up early (I was happy that I had in each case, others weren't so well prepared).
- Have plenty of extra cards and a large capacity storage device for back-up.
- Bring rain gear.
- Remember to have credentials out.
- Leave seldom used lenses home.
- I used my 17-35 and my 28-70 the most.
- The 100-400 didn't see much use. The 70-200 didn't see much use either.
Are there any other things you think would be helpful?
