Photographers & Media



Great Southwest Shows is proud to partner with Jerry Mohme Photography as our Official Show Photographer. Exhibitors can view their photos on-site or online at

Photo requests for media/editorial purposes should contact Amy Uniss at

Great Southwest Shows requires all freelance photographers to apply for a Freelance Photographer Pass, separate from a media credential, if they plan to give or sell their photos for exhibitor/competitor use.

  • Weekly pass is $750 per photographer, no discounts for additional photographer.
  • Year-round Great Southwest Shows pass is $7,000 for the first photographer and $4,500 for additional photographers
    • Year-round includes: Winter Series I-IV, Round Up, Fiesta Classic, Fall Classic, Monster Mash, Autumn Classic, Final Chase & Texas Winter Frost Fire
    • Pin Oak pass per week is $750 per photographer, no discounts for additional photographer. This info can be found at

  • The Official Photographer has positioning priorities outside of the arenas; Freelance photographers are not allowed inside of the arenas except for award presentations if their client is in the awards.

  • All credentialed media and photographers are required to sign Covid-19 waiver and follow all Covid-19 rules and protocols set forth by the show.

By applying for the Freelance Photographer Credential, you agree to abide by these rules; credentials may be revoked without refund if rules are violated. A limited number of freelance photographer credentials are available and are subject to management approval.

Payment will be required in full prior to the start of the current show series in which the freelance photographer is attending.

Client lists must be received no later than Monday of each show week. Client lists can change between each series, but all approved freelance photographers may not solicit new clients beyond the client list submitted at time of approval.

Freelance Photographers cannot offer photos for individual purchase in-person or on a website.

A credential request application does not guarantee approval. Once a freelance photographer application is received, it will be reviewed and a Great Southwest Shows representative will be in touch regarding approval, client lists and payment information.

The only exception is if you are a parent/family member and you are strictly taking photos of just you child/family member for personal use. Then you can get an exempt family pass.
