I am wanting to become a member, and will be needing a sponsor(s). Would any of you that happen to be member be willing to sponsor me?

JUST having Nikon gear isn't enough... well, for my area, anyway.  Receipts for your purchases have to be shown and, sometimes, they will have a time limit on when the purchase was made.  Read the fine print.  May save you some grief.

I think if you start the process, it will tell you what you need. For example, you need a UPS account.

Art I think you misunderstood my response to your question. As far as gear ownership goes I meet that criteria. And last I checked I purchased everything. So far all I have seen is what the new site showed me as a follow to my filling out their application.

So thanks for letting me know about the jump thru hoops portion. With that said listed was that I need a sponsor. I thought this is a good place to ask but then again looks like not considering the lack of responses.

Dennis thanks a million for the reply. A UPS act hasn't been mentioned yet but would not be an issue.

Hi Dennis, 

 

I think I see a pattern where Nikon doesn't seem to give you a complete listing at the point you open and application.I have no idea, but they did say they would get back with me. So looks like the intial process is maybe trimmed down a bit.

 

Thanks for the info

  • They sometimes ask for proof of publication to prove you are full time photographer. I gave them my website and the names of the Gannett media outlets for whom I work for on a regular basis. I guess that was enough. Sometimes they ask for current tear sheets.
  • Where is you work published?

I have been published works with a news outlet  as a contributor to the sports pages. The last few years I have fill the role of Team photographer for a High School girl's basketball program. I have also working relationship with Team First based out of Texas.  Then there is my website that is current and functional. I also have a retail sales history. Seems like that are lots of items that are not discussed at the point a person take a look into the NPS program for Nikon. I have also had published work in Builder's and Architect Magazine.

 

Thanks for the insite
