Update: VT Photographer Retires

The controversy has gotten to banned mall photographer Dan Scott. He writes on a Flickr group page that he will no longer be taking pictures, in the Church Street Marketplace or anywhere else.

A commenter who claimed to have knowledge of those involved posted here that Scott was indeed harassing people at the Uncommon Grounds coffeeshop, and it’s apparently turned into an ugly story in Burlington. Scott, however, sounds pretty sincere in this Flickr post. He also links to the offending photo, which seems like classic street photography stuff to me. Is it possible Scott creeped this woman out by shooting her from afar? Sure. Does he have every right to shoot on public streets? Yes.

There’s three sides to every story – his, their’s and the truth. We’ll leave it at that.
