    Most security people are sitting around bored, with not much happening, so questioning photographers makes them feel like they are doing something productive.
    It can be a good idea to carry a small picture album with examples of your work. I use the cheap, plastic 4x6" $2 albums that you can buy from Big W, Target etc. Put in prints that show the end results of the sort of pics that security types are likely to be questioning you about, eg industrial architecture, people on the street etc. So when they are expressing suspicion at why anyone would want to be in that place taking photos you can bring out the examples of what you make from it. I think that some of these people really don't understand that some of us take photos for personal reasons. They think photography has to be for a specific purpose, ie you are a news photographer, or you're planning to put up a new building or whatever. It's important to try to get through to them that what we are doing is OK.
