I arrived at the event early so that I could set close to the celebrities and have a vantage point to sit up my camera to take good photos.

a) could set close to the celebrities and have a vantage point to sit up my camera to take (Not set but sit close to celebrities and set up the camera not sit up.)

b) had a good seat to set close to the celebrities and have a vantage point to set up my camera to take (Sit close not set)

c) could sit close to the celebrities and have a vantage point of setting up my camera of taking (Purpose of the sentence should be started with infinitive to)

d) should be able to sit close to the celebrities for having a vantage point to set up my camera in taking (Same as C)

e) could sit close to the celebrities and have a vantage point to set up my camera to take (Correct)

Kudos please if you like my explanation
