Unless you can tell us how someone actually tried to stop you from taking a picture (and I don't mean a "no trespassing" sign), don't post it here. There are plenty of urban exploration groups you can go to without destroying this one.
Check out this ARTnews article on photography policies in museums.
(Disclaimer: The print version of the article has three of my “No Photo” sign photographs.)
The District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department has settled a lawsuit by a wrongfully detained photographer. As a result of the settlement, the DC Police Department has recognized the public's First Amendment rights to photograph and audio record police officers in public space, so long as police work is not impeded. All D.C. policemen have been made aware of thi...
Back in July, I had an encounter with a Wackenhut/G4s security guard who told us that we could not take pictures of any of the buildings in the Financial District in Downtown Norfolk (Commercial Place area) VA. I immediately challenged him, reminding him that neither Wackenhut nor Bank of America make the rules on public property; that is the bailywick of that pesky docum...
Hey everyone, I am a Ryerson University journalism student in Toronto and for one of my classes, I was assigned a group project: create a multi-media feature about Union Station.
My group took pictures and gathered info but 2 weeks ago, when we wanted to interview people and film the surroundings, we were told by security we couldn't.
So we got in touch with the hea...
is there a law in Germany where you cant take pictures of people in public and publish them?
In the US and i think the UK you can take pictures of people if you took the picture in public.
I take alot of pictures of people on the underground, would i be able to publish them one day if i wanted to?
I was in DC a couple days ago and one of the security guards at the capitol building mentioned not being able to use a tripod. Is there any truth to this? It makes no sense to not prohibit photography, but to prohibit use of a tripod.
A thread on another message board prompted me to contact the ACLU in regards to photographers rights in public spaces.
Content of the message to the ACLU:
It would be extremely beneficial to all photographers if the ACLU would release a document similar to the PDF written by Attorney Bert P. Krages II – “The Photographers Right” www.krages.com/ThePhotogr...

My girlfriend and I were out shooting for some upcoming photo club competitions. One of those competitions is themed “Patterns” and I thought, what better place for that than in architecture! So we went to Downtown Norfolk VA, in the financial district, to do some shooting. Let me also explain that she has some social issues with crowds...

In a Makeup Shop in London.
Can't remember the name but the products there were so-so beautiful, And of course I wasn't allowed to take photos.
I had my macro lens -brand new macro lens- and this was the perfect occasion to test it.
After the first shot A blond lady came to me and said:
"I'm sorry, You can't take pictures of the products"
I maybe a little late, but I spotted this story in the UK press, just another case of scare tactics employed by officials to restrict liberty, I find it totally disgraceful, just who do these people think they are?
Anyway I'll let the original article tell the story (it worth the read)

I recently photographed Pine Bend Refinery in Minnesota, at night, with permission (and a security escort).
I know this group is supposed to be for photos taken without permission ... but the refinery itself may be of interest, and I wondered if anyone would be interested in the photos? A sample:
There is a very long and interesting thread on Flickr Central that bistrosavage pointed out about bans on pictures of Tour d'Eiffel.
If people have pictures of the tower, they'd have to be taken after the ban was put in place. I have lots from the year 2000, but it was okay then. On the other hand, if people want to take loads of pictures of the Eiffel Tower just to ...
