Who do you think are the worlds best action / sports photographers and get dibs on best events and locations? I'd guess those that cover for Sports Illustrate and get those amazing action photo's of those special moments that happen in the blink of the eye. Sadly it looks like even the best shooters that always get the best pictures to grace their pages can be let go. Dang does that mean any bloke with ~$30,000 to invest in a couple 1DMkX or D4s and a few lenses ( 400 2.8, 300 2.8, 70-200 2.8, 24-70 2.8 ) can get the shot. Ha I know there is hope for a rich amateur like me, I know I can get the shot like them, just give me access and I'll get the shot!
