Is Photography a Crime?

Watch the full length video

 

It was a great hangout, many thanks to our special guests, Carlos Miller and Alfie Goodrich for sharing their experience!
We were talking about legal issues and security threats which photographers dealing with when shooting on a public areas.

  • What are our rights?
  • What to do when security personel and police when they ask you to stop shooting but you know they do not have rights for this?
  • Can we use images with strangers and brand names on them?

These are some of the questions we have discussed.

  1. I just watched this. There is a lot of good info and interaction here. Thank you Alex for putting these together. I appreciate your studio teachings but this is good info too. This actually gave me a bit of hope, after feeling like doing photography in public, just for fun, was kind of a thing of the past due to the fear based mentality of so many people tying photography with terrorism.
    Thank you,
    Will
