Photographers’ Rights Protest in So Cal May 1

Photographers in Southern California are urged to come out on May 1 to the 2010 College Swimming State Championships at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, CA, to show their solidarity and support for photographers’ rights at public sporting events. 

It all stems from a recent incident where a photographer was singled out at a swim meet in the same venue and asked to leave by security, who told him the coaches would prefer he not take photos, apparently because of the looks of his equipment.

Bring all your cameras, still and video, bring your long lenses, monopods, etc. Let’s make it obvious that we are serious photographers exercising our rights to take pictures in public.
