p.1 #1 · Any NPS Members?


Hey everyone! NPS sent me a code for an online application today! I was really excited, but when I got to page two of the application I noticed an NPS sponsor was a required field. I don't personally know any other NPS members and I was wondering if any of you would be willing to get to know my wife and I and sponsor us? We would appreciate it so much!

I don't think that you want your NPS number sitting here for the world to see.

Agreed about not showing your NPS number... They have a loaner program and you could be financially liable for any unreturned equipment.

Just for the record, you don't need to share your NPS number to sponsor another photographer, just your email address. Nikon sends an a message via email to the sponsor as part of the verification process.

I don't think Alan has visited the forums since he posted his message, hopefully he'll come back soon and remove his NPS number. I think he just happens to be a really nice guy

I haven't been able to get in touch with Alan, so we're still looking as well. If you're willing to sponsor my wife and I we just need your name and email address so we can complete the application. To learn more about us visit

That's not been my experience, not to say it's not true. On the form, there's a spot for the NPS member's name, NPS number, and his contact info, if I remember correctly. There's also a spot for the NPS member's signature. I sponsored another FM member by having him put my information in there without my signature and he was approved without my being contacted. I think they've relaxed their process.

There's a whole new online application process. I just got my application code yesterday. When you get to page two of the online application you have to provide your website, upload two tear sheets, list any organizations you're a member of, such as PPA, and the last field is an NPS sponsor. They only require a name and email address for sponsorship. Unfortunately, it is a required field, so you can't move on to page three until you list a sponsor. It's a pretty slick application process imo.

I'd upload screen shots, but I don't have uploading here on FM.

How'd you get an invite to NPS? I have a sponsor, as well as a letter to go out to them.

I meet the lens requirement (16mm, 17-35, 24-70, 50 f/1.4, 85 f/1.4, 70-200 VR2), but with only two D700's and a D7000, I don't know if I meet the body requirement.

Shame on them if I ever apply and they turn me down. I don't want a D800 nor the file size that comes with it.

Uh, forget the "soon" part. The NPS does not act quickly on these things.

You only need two pro bodies, and your two D700s qualify.
