I have in the past shot a lot of images in cemeteries and am considering a zine of my work. I live in the USA, midwest. Is it legal to photograph in a cemetery without first getting permission? I've been approached a few times by cemetery employees telling me I was not allowed to photograph. Just curious about this. Thanks.

Cemeteries are often private property, and as such are subject to the whims of the owners.

Usually not an issue if you are just photographing the cemetery, but doing model shoots; it's best to get permission.
