    Know your rights as a photographer

    Here's a link to the ACLU regarding your rights as a photographer.

    Thank you
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    It's practically the same for us in the UK (except for the bits about trespass). Here is a UK version: http://www.sirimo.co.uk/2009/05/14/u...ers-rights-v2/

    The fact is that might is right i.e. if one six foot four 250 lb cop has you in a headlock, and another has your arm twisted up your back it's very difficult to argue in a rational way about your legal rights to take photographs, and although you can seek legal redress later it's certainly the end of that days shooting.

    Strange how these sheets never include any responsibilities.. generally easily summarised as don't be an a**e, be courteous, and respect others.

    These should go without saying, but Youtube is full of 'togs being full of themselves and provoking confrontation to get the video of themselves "being hassled". This only dilutes the genuine problems and makes thing harder for both sides.

    Can you point out a few of these confrontational videos that Youtube is "full of"? I'd like to know what people are doing to "provoke" the authorities.

    Its common knowledge that you don't tresspass or invade anyones privacy, if you do you should expect problems, like rock salt in the ass.
