Your rights to film on the street!

5. Own-it event: [NEW DATE!] Photographing Public Spaces/Photographing
the Public

Having a camera and using it in public can lead to awkward questioning
by security guards or in the worst case scenario, having your camera
taken from you and photographs deleted. This is not only due to the
ongoing privatisation of streets and places that were formerly public
property but also to the fear of terrorism. Additionally, members of the
public are increasingly sensitive when being photographed even when they
only appear in the background of your image. This evening seminar is
aimed at press photographers, fashion photographers and illustrators,
who use photography or sketches of public spaces for their final product.

Time: 6-9pm (6-8pm followed by drinks and networking until 9pm)
