Photography in the News

Many of you will be aware of the current story in the news where a man was treated fairly harshly while taking a photo of his daughter in the Braehead shopping centre:

While he was on private land – thus technically should have sought permission before taking the shot – I really don’t see the harm in a quick photo of your kid eating an ice-cream. As a result of the heavy handed approach taken by the shopping centre security and the police the whole thing has spun out of control.

I came across this video which you should watch to know your rights when shooting in public areas. Hopefully it will help in dealing with private security and the police alike and ensure that any issues encountered can be resolved without the police reciting the terrorism act to you.
