Your rights as a Photographer

Tags: , , , , , , , , , Cameras, Community, Law, London, Photography, Photojournalism, Portrait, Resources, Rights, Street No comments

If you’ve ever taken a photo on the street, chances are someone has already asked you what you are doing and why you are doing it, mainly by security guards in and outside buildings.

These people can be very intimidating, can at times be aggressive and even make up laws to dissuade you from taking photos. They can ask threaten you with lawsuits, and demand you delete the photos, or even give them your memory cards. This can be a very off-putting, traumatic and stressful experience for any budding photographer, so we thought we would we would, in a nutshell, clarify for you once and for all who, and what you can and cannot photograph in the UK.
