Leeds festival

Not that I was planning to go but I didn't like this condition published on their website


*Pocket sized cameras for personal use are permitted for personal use. Cameras with telephoto lens will not be allowed. Professional cameras and video / audio equipment are strictly prohibited. Live video / audio recordings made without the permission of the artiste or premises licence holder are prohibited

I can understand the ban on professional use-god forbid they ever find out what you can do nowadays with a pocket sized camera.

Re: Leeds festival

When I visit places and they say photo restrictions apply when at the ticket desk I voice my opinion and then leave and say well this is another I shall never return to! My small compact camera shoots movies and I can print large quality A3 prints from it so I just wonder what idiot thought of this ban!

Re: Leeds festival

It get worse. Last year a club member was hassled by an "official" whilst taking a photo on a public road of a public event because he was using "professional " equipment, again loads of people using compacts.

Needless to say letters were written to the council and the local newspaper.

Re: Leeds festival

I was given complementary tickets for horse racing and the security guards did not like to look of my "professional equipment" and thus could not let me in without a press pass. However, I knew from the website that the racecourse applied no restrictions on photography and encouraged it (hence giving some complementary tickets to Camera Club members). I insisted on seeing a supervisor and showed him my FIAP ID card which indicates that I am an amateur. Of course he had never seen such a card before but that coupled with my reference to a local camera club (and being firm but calm about my rights) led to being allowed through with all equipment. I did mention the incident to my contact and was later given an apology by the racecourse who have to use many additional contracted security guards for large events and the company supplying them normally work at football matches and had not been briefed about the relaxed attitude to photography at the racecourse.

Re: Leeds festival

Most people leave me well alone but I do recall the last numpty that tried to stop me taking pics outside the city hall in Sheffield at the xfactor auditions.
She informed me that I wasn't allowed to take pics (of members of the public in a public place) so I started taking pics of her too what joy
