.. Was I wrong to shoot his work, for personal use, in a public place?

In a public place you (where in the world are you? My understanding is from UK) are able to photograph anything that is there. But if he made a lot of noise you might think of stopping.

In the UK the issue isn't so much as photographing in a public place, which is permissible, rather it is what you do with the photos.

You have said it was for personal use, so I think you are ok there also.

Had you been wanting to sell the photos the situation might be different, but I think you are ok.
