Question Street Photography : Your Rights When You Are Stopped or Confronted for Photography

OK it's US based but still interesting reading here .
Had the concern yesterday when taking shots in Stratford Upon Avon, about the ethics of photographing people & posting on the web Do others always ask before / after taking photo's ?

Foudn the following quote from another forum for UK...not asure how true it is ? "....you are allowed to take pictures of anyone in a public place in the UK. You can even sell the pictures in an editorial context (mags papers) but you cannot use them for any form of advertising without a model release. That's the law part..."

There's a link to a uk version on that site too.

http://www.sirimo.co.uk/ukpr.php

Might be worth a thread in the links forum for that one too?

*ahem* It's on the front page of our site (not the forums front page, but the main www.thephotographyforums.com site)

This is the section it points to

http://www.thephotographyforums.com/?page=rights1

Which, in turn, links to sirimo.co.uk.

*edit : Ahh I see, you're suggesting a link in the links forum to the US based one.
I'll prod the relevant people

Actually you were right the first time, I was thinking of the UK version, I just never visit the front page and didn't check to see if it already existed, me being a congenitally lazy git

It's worth quickly mentioning that people have to be recogisable for these laws to be in effect.

With advertsising, you don't need to get model release forms for every single blurred person in the background. Similarly the back of someone's head won't count either.
