Photography Campaign Launches in UK


The UK has to be one of the most hostile places for photography in the free world, seemingly crying “terrorism” the minute someone pulls out a camera in public. So in response a group of photographers have banned together to create the “I’m a photographer not a Terrorist” campaign. Meant to raise awareness, map infractions and work toward stopping the egregious harassment, it’s also a place to download a “bust card” (a handy reference of your rights), check out a map of where photography has been prohibited and upload your own DIY portrait.

One of the campaign’s founders, Jeff Moore, told Amateur Photographer: “This website is not just for professionals, it is very much aimed at everyone from pros, high-end amateurs and mums using their camera phones.”

    Freudian slip? “Banned” should be ‘banded’.
