Great Resources to Learn about Photographers’ Rights to Shoot
Photographers today must understand the legal principles that affect their rights to make images. Fortunately, we have great resources that provide guidance on how to handle confrontations, to obtain remedies if wronged, and to develop an ethic for an individual approach to photography.
Many of the resources are included / linked to in the section entitled “Photographer’s Rights” in the right-hand column of this blog. Other good resources include:
- A scholarly paper entitled “Less than Picture Perfect: The Legal Relationship between Photographers’ Rights and Law Enforcement” by Morgan Leigh Manning, a recent graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law.
- Carlos Miller’s blog, “Photography is Not a Crime“
- NPPA’s Advocacy Committee’s blog
- The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press blog
