I'm Sick of the MAN!

I'm Sick of the MAN!

No, not this man, or this man, or even this man. I'm talking about the vast right-wing conspiracy of rampant greed and unchecked power that are constantly trying to seperate me from my human rights, especially when I have a camera in my hands.

In this security crazy time, it's good to know what you can get away with your rights and the remedies you can seek if someone tries to detain, deter, or harass you while taking pictures, videotaping or filming in public.

Thankfully Bert P. Krages, II has published "a general education guide about the right to take photographs."

I've learned that the best weapon in the constant battle against the man is access to heavy artillery, but a close second is education. Incidentally, third is an upbeat attitude.

You can download the pdf at


UPDATE 7/11/2007: right click on this link to download the pdf, as of today, is down.

While I found the photographers rights PDF very interesting, it almost has an undertone of being written specifically for the paparazzi. Although it is nice to know that guys like yourself have a document protecting you from the man.

I agree about the paparazzi thing... I would go further and say that this is the kind of document that allows drunk college girls to ruin their lives on a specific Tuesday night New Orleans. All of our freedoms can be abused. That doesn't mean we take away those freedoms.
