I was wandering around the petetions site again cos some are just funny.
I found this
It is properly explained on his web site. I have a child and have taken photos in public places of my son, but I have had council officers approach me about my use of a camera. I told them they could bugger off, they did I was bigger then them.
I recently went to my sons school play. We could take cameras and videos, I forgot both, a sensible policy applied by a very sensible school and headmaster.
However the story detailed in this man’s web site is very worrying and indicitive of an attitude to cameras at a time when everyone has access to cameras in many formats of varying quality.
I think that a lobby from photographers is a good idea to remind people of the rights we already have.
Take a look let me know what you think.
