Photographers rights bid to No10

A petition, demanding that the prime minister clarifies the law regarding photographers’ rights to take pictures in public places has been submitted to No10 reports Amateur Photographer.

Photography enthusiast Adam Jones launched the online petition citing what he claims is constant harassment of photographers by ‘security guards and police officers in the name of preventing terrorism’.

Jones wrote: ‘They seem to be operating under a different interpretation of the law to the rest of us, believing that somehow the length of your lens or size of your camera is relevant.’

So far the ‘e-petition’ has gained over 40 signatures.
