donÂ´t know where to post this.. but i think it kind of fits in here.
i was visiting the UK last week. never felt more unwelcome as photographer anywhere.
(ok except... east germany in 1987).
so what is it that the british gov hates us DSLR shooters so much?
no shoothing here with a DSLR, no shooting there with a DSLR.
carry a tripod and you have a great chance to be deported to camp x-ray by the spooks.
are the british politicans are really that stupid that they believe terrorist can only make photos with a DSLR?
i was asked a few times not to take photos with my DSLR while people with mFT and even bridge cameras are allowed to take pictures.
can someone explain that nonsense?
Yes, people are very stupid. If I ever travel there, I'll have a lawyer on speed dial. I dont take kindly to my rights being infringed upon.
The rules are very simple
- shooting on public land is allowed without restriction
- shooting on private land is by the permission of the land owner only
You only have rights on public land.
