You forgot to say their rules require a "senior member" of Sportshooters to sponsor you. It has nothing to do with "legit" unless their other requirement for 10 sports photos matters to them (it does). You may "have a lot of FB here", but where would that be located on FM? Minus a portfolio link here, or without your real name, not your FM handle, it seems that sponsorship will be on indefinite hold. You might want to read their requirements again.

I'm a bit lost, why does that site require you to know someone already on it? Do they hand out work or something?

Read the Sportshooter link. This has nothing to do with me. If you don't like their rules, don't join.

Hey Ben, Only a guess here, but I'd reckon it is a group whose standards are organized around having met some established set of criteria that only those on the "inside" get to know about, but must also be demonstrated, and independently confirmed, hence, the referral requirement. Ya know, ya just can't have some ordinary guy who produces remarkable sport pictures showing up to demo their wares Unlike of course all those "slugs" who show up on all the other fora, e.g., Mustangs Air to Air, etc, and illustrate extraordinary competency taking pics of aircraft, or whatever, no referral required.

But, as my Italian grandfather used to say "Pizz on 'em"

Just curious, what benefits are you looking for (expecting?) by joining them?

Until I realized the kidney donation required, I was just trying to reply to a thread

Yikes, it looks like an awful place with that mutual admiration society attitude.

That reminds me of a certain professional organization in my field. You have to be nominated by other members. Now I've been a professional in that area alone for about 30 years and cannot get in because I don't know anyone. Meanwhile people less than half my age with limited experience are in there. When I read some forums I'm just shaking my head at the nonsense and misinformation. If you have to post online to ask about how to perform your job function, then something is not right.
