Areas of interest: Historic events, community events, sports, politics
Reason: Most events to photograph and report require media credentials, having accreditation would allow me to better my opportunities to get access and allowing me to document them (the event) for reporting or assisting fellow reporters.
Support: Potential COI vote for accreditation... but I've worked with bidgee several times as a writer/photographer pair. It would be helpful for this work if he was accredited. We have used pictures he has specifically taken for Wikinews on Wikinews articles several times. He understands the principles of reporting, has written and article. Acceptance is pretty much based on photography work with a belief he could write if he chose to. --LauraHale (talk) 22:03, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
Support Two fully authored articles post-flaggedrevs (most recent of the "old" articles, from February 2010). Apparent respect for the project and its values. Seems a solid candidate. --Pi zero (talk) 22:25, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
Support IIRC... when Wikinews first started years back, there was always hop that there would be enough accredited reporters in some areas that they could work in teams... that never happened. Until now!! --Patrick M (TUFKAAP) (talk) 15:51, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
stong support; obvious respects, and values, the project. Worked on now-published Original Reporting? Just icing on the cake. --Brian McNeil / talk 09:57, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
Support Sure.....appears to've done a big gob of trying real hard! Bddpaux (talk) 20:10, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
