Private Photographer Policies

In an effort to better regulate and maintain horse and rider safety during competition, the USEA in conjunction with Rebecca Farm will be implementing new freelance photography protocols during the 2022 AEC. All freelance photographers and private client photographers who wish to photograph or take video on-site with the intent to sell/distribute photos to clients must fill out an application form and submit payment and a client list prior to the start of the event. This is required for all photographers and videographers aside from media outlets. Only a limited number of private photographers will be accepted for the 2022 AEC at Rebecca Farm. Private photography applications are due by August 19, 2022

Rates and regulations for private, freelance photography during the 2022 American Eventing Championships at Rebecca Farm are as follows:

  • Individual private client photographer passes: $750 per photographer
    • Second shooters are limited to one per company.
  • Private/freelance photographers are required to submit a client list by August 24, 2022.
    • Each company, regardless of the number of shooters, is allowed to shoot up to 10 clients
    • Once a client list is submitted private client and freelance photographers are not allowed to shoot, sell, or solicit riders that are not on their approved list
    • Private client photographers will be provided with media credentialing that must be worn at all times.
  • The Official Photographer has positioning priorities both in and out of the ring
  • Private client and freelance photographers are not allowed inside of the arenas for horse and rider safety purposes. This includes awards ceremonies.
  • Those in violation of the above policies may be asked to leave the property.

Individual Photography

With the understanding that family members will want to capture memories of their loved ones during the AEC, personal camera usage is allowed. For safety purposes, those taking photos for personal use are not allowed inside any of the arenas, including during prize giving ceremonies. We ask that those with personal use cameras please respect credentialed media and photographers by being aware of their positioning and to please avoid areas where you may be in the way of the area that the photographer is shooting. If at any time your photography becomes a safety hazard or comes into conflict with that of a credentialed media person, you may be asked to relocate.
