Group Description

The National Photographers’ Rights Organization is a group of photographers and concerned citizens with the goal to shoot photographs openly and freely in public spaces wherever, whenever, of whomever.

This is a place to post your photographs that have been taken before/during/after confrontations with law enforcement, as well as just a general meeting place to share photos, seek inspiration and discuss issues.

NPRO Day: We will have a peaceful protest every June to speak out against the harassment we’ve received from security guards and law enforcement while lawfully photographing skyscrapers, police officers, the Metro and all manner of public places in and around LA.


There aren’t many legal restrictions on what you can photograph from a public place that’s already in public view. If you’re harassed, it’s almost certainly a law enforcement official, public or private, acting way beyond his authority.
- Bruce Schneier, Security Tech Specialist
