Upload & Sell: On
The Blue Angels offered the opportunity to ISAP. My guess would be that they didn't say, "we're bumping other photographers for you". I see your point, but unfortunately it is a fact that in most rare shooting opportunities, there are a limited number of slots. We, as photographers probably rarely think, or are even cognizant of, the person who didn't get the slot, the client, or the assignment that we landed.
Yes, ISAP will have a substantial presence at SNF, and we will have some very special shooting opportunities. Once again, because of the relationships we have built, those opportunities most likely won't go to other photographers. Some might see this as a reason to join and contribute time and talent to the organization.
