Six Photographers Test Their Right to Shoot in London

Petapixel have a video showing the problems photographers have photographing in the street, it is an interesting view of how photographers are hassled by ‘security’  and how those involved in ‘security’ don’t understand the law and try to assume rights they do not have.

“On June 21, 2011, non-profit organization Shoot Experience sent out six photographers to various parts of London to see the current state of photographers’ rights.” ….go here for the video
