This badge is aimed at professional, published photographers who travel to shoot events and work for a company in good standing with the site.

If you see a photographer who meets this criteria and needs a tag, please feel free to let us know:
http://www.pbnation.com/sendmessage.php?subject=17

If you are applying, please make sure you include: your full name, link to current portfolio, who you work for and a list of events you have photographed as a part of the media this year. Please make sure that event galleries are labeled and easily distinguished. You should also make a single gallery of your best work. Do not send us links to Facebook.

We are creating this new designation so that photographers can be easily identified by PbNation users and staff. However please be aware that one of the primary challenges that we have in running a site as large as PbNation is the ever present issue of corporate spam. This new designation is not permission to create threads or posts that we consider corporate spam. Please be mindful of this when you create content or new user profiles that you wish to include in this program.
Do you get any feedback/reply on your application saying whether or not you qualify?

Yeah, a bit. But any photographer that uses Facebook as a primary way to show off their work has a lot to learn. Facebook just straight destroys photo quality so the pics load fast on phones.

i disagree. the only photographers who use facebook as their primary portfolio are very likely just starting out or those who are not pursuing photography seriously anymore.

Unfortunately Facebook does utterly destroy Photo quality. I would disagree however that it says the photographer necessarily has a lot to learn. While there are some websites that allow free hosting where you can put a portfolio up most sites require some sort of subscription fee or you have to start up and pay for your own website. While having your own website is all fine for a photography company; a single individual photographer who has a startup company but the photography (although of professionally quality) is only a side job; or something where real income isn't generated probably doesn't have the means need or desire to setup their own website

then they're simply a hobbyist at best, or more likely, hes just a guy with a camera. Everybody has their friend who got a camera for their birthday and started up a facebook page a week later for their "photography". the no facebook rule is the easiest way to weed those people out.

would you take a mechanic seriously if he didn't have his own garage or tools? what if a guy wants to join your paintball team and says "i'm really good, i just don't have any of my own gear".

putting your stuff on facebook doesn't mean you're a bad photographer and having a website doesn't mean you're a good one. What having a website does mean though, is that you take yourself seriously enough to invest the time, energy, and resources into creating a more professional portfolio.

This is important. Facebook is a great tool for marketing but if that's all you have to show for your work when there's excellent resources like 500px as an example (which at its core is free, by the way), it's hard to take someone seriously when they present that because 9/10 it's just someone with the camera taking photos of their buddies. I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with that, but the badge is for people that are taking paintball photography seriously and are booking teams, and offering services nationally or locally to paintball. Not everyone with a camera deserves the badge, unfortunately. If you're denied a badge you can either give up or keep working on it and come back with photos that show you should have one.

When Keely worked for the PSP she used to ask for your website, traffic stats, etc. You would've gotten denied immediately by her if you submitted something from Facebook only.
