Photography 101 - Resticting photos in public placesPosted Thursday, July 3, 2008, at 12:49 PM
I guess it is a sign of the times. The UK has given the 'green light' for their police to stop folks from taking photographs in public places. This is on a case by case evaluation but it seems one concern is children. http://www.freelanceuk.com/news/2773.sht...
I have heard we get concerned when someone is taking detailed pictures of public buildings because of terrorism, but I have not seen the other concern yet. Anyone seeing that in the U.S.?
I understand the concern and anything that protects our children will probably be good with me, but it is a sad statement and possibly a cold splash of water to tourists and photographers alike.
They are offering an I.D. card for professionals. How would that be qualified and how easy would it be to get? Hmmm maybe that new career in photography needs to be evaluated better.
