Can You Take Photographs In Public? Can You Film In Public? Terrorism Searches.

My iPhone and my Sony A7S3 both take photos.  They both take videos.  I remember being in a local public council gym in 2021 (Everyone Active Stadium of Light) and was taking exercise photos of my girlfriend when a member of staff came over and told me I wasn’t allowed.  When I pointed to the two lads over my shoulder taking photos on a mobile phone and asked what the difference was – not surprisingly – he was stumped and just walked away.  To avoid any further issues I called to him and said I would put my camera away.  This is just one of many examples that photographers and videographers face daily when doing what we love – either for recreation or business.

People seem to think that a phone isn’t a camera or video recording device, yet numerous studies show every year that more photos are taken on a smartphone than from any other piece of equipment.

I’m going to give you an absolute crazy and extreme example.  If you wanted to, you could take a photo of a new born baby in a public place, blow it up to 100 square foot and sell it for profit on any social media platform and country.  There is no law in the UK to stop you doing that.  Obviously – why would you?

Common sense is not a gift, it’s a punishment because you have to engage with everyone who doesn’t have it.
