This is great stuff – six photographers see what happens when they take their cameras round the financial district of London. Best of all, the police know and enforce the law.
Good work guys. Basically, if you can see it from a public area, you can take a photo of it, (unless it’s your topless neighbour in her backyard or something questionable).
Great video, and good to see that the City Police know the law. Oh and how many terrorists wear a pink jumpers?
Great video. We have exactly the same problem here in France and even worse, because even our police doesn’t know the rules regarding public spaces and so on.
In some cities, it is strictly forbidden to shoot public stuff and even famous monuments on tripod, without an official agreement (understand : without paying a fee).
And our french policemen are not as polite and as well educated as the english policemen I can see in this video (or those I encountered during my stays in UK).
Have to confess that initially this had just the effect I knew it would have when I watched it…indeed I deliberately didn’t watch it at first as I was feeling really calm! But good to know we seem to getting there with the police. I won’t hold my breath with the private security guards though, their employers probably want them to act in this way.
I know what you mean, and not everyone is going to stand their ground – a lot will simply be deterred from even trying to take pictures.
The worrying thing is the inexorable growth of the Jobsworth Industry.
