The Right's of Photographers (when shooting in public places) | static photography

1. Property owners may legally prohibit photography on their premises but have no right to prohibit others from photographing their property from other locations.
2. Anyone can be photographed in a public place without their consent except when they have secluded themselves in places where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy such as dressing rooms, restrooms, medical facilities, etc.
3. The following subjects can almost always be photographed lawfully from public places: accident and fire scenes, children, celebrities, bridges and other infrastructure, criminal activities, law enforcement officers.
4. security is rarely a legitimate reason for restricting photography.
5. You are under no obligation to explain the purpose of your photography nor do you have to disclose your identity except upon request by a law enforcement officer. (NOT A MALL SECURITY GUARD!)
6. Absent of a court order noone has the right to confiscate your film. Doing so can constitute a criminal offence such as theft, coercion or harrassment.
