Ah for me a touchy subject. Problem with Press now. Too many photographers have abused it just to do cosplay photography. IMO with the larger cons they've had a large crackdown on everyone trying to get a free ride. So IMO if you apply for press you should be on the clock for the reason why they gave you press. The ones that I really laugh at is when they get press. And charge the subjects they shoot money. I don't care that they are there to many money. Just getting a free ride is the issue. I understand press is there to make money too by reporting and hopefully getting readers/advertisement/etc, but getting money from shoots is a whole other beast if that was their primary reason for getting press..
