So if you and your 6 year old daughter are out shopping and there's someone with a big camera following you around taking pictures of your daughter, you would be perfectly fine with that? Who knows where these pictures are ending up? You don't know if that person is a pediphile or not. That's why security has to take those precautions.

You are avoiding the question.

Let me ask again: What is the harm in photographing children? Please be specific regarding exactly how a child (or anyone else, for that matter) is harmed by being photographed?

You yourself might be an honest photographer taking a candid picture of a kid just for the sheer joy of seeing a happy kid, you go and put that picture on your website, or upload it somewhere else, now you've displayed that picture for god knows who to see. Again, I'm not saying you yourself are a pedophile, or taking a picture of a kid without permission is wrong, I'm just saying I like to have all my basses covered by getting permission for taking that picture and using it on a website or some other form of media.
