Online petition on law and photgraphy, please join
Fellow Nikonians, (slightly off topic I know, but I know this applies to expereinces I have seen in this forum)
Please add your support to this petition if you feel photogrpahers, security guards and the police need more clarity about what you can and cannot take photogrpahs of!
The government really do respond to these petitions on the Downing street web site! But with dp review support we can show them how much this means to us!
The petition wording reads:
Through history, we have documented the world around us, whether through written word, art or photography.
Photography in particular has provided fantastic insights into the past and present, and is a hobby enjoyed by millions of people worldwide.
But today, it's becoming increasingly difficult to take photos of our surroundings, particularly in cities like London.
In recent years, the price divide between professional and consumer equipment has blurred, and it's quite common these days to see amateurs and hobbyists carrying around tripods, SLR cameras and a backpack full of equipment.
Yet, we are constantly harrassed by security guards and police officers in the name of preventing terrorism. They seem to be operating under a different interpretation of the law to the rest of us, believing that somehow the length of your lens, or size of your camera is relevant.
We would like clarification by the goverment on the law regarding photography of buildings and landmarks from public locations.
