Back in July I attended and reviewed a lecture on “The Legal Landscape of Street Shooting” put on by Fotovision.org. I have been chomping at the bit to share this with my blog readers, so much so I took it upon myself to assist in producing the podcast of it. It’s taken some time to get out, but it’s finally been released. This podcast is just shy of 2 hours long, but I can assure you it is well worth your time. This topic has been discussed by a variety of other bloggers and seldom with much accuracy. This podcast is a must listen as those on the panel are legal authorities from the â€œThe First Amendment Projectâ€œ.
Below is the Fotovision announcement regarding the podcast:
Fotovision has created its first podcast of “The Legal Landscape of Street Shooting”, which was a Fotovision panel discussion in July by the team at The First Amendment Project. It tackles the very critical area of law that photographers need to understand while shooting in public spaces. Your rights are simple, but how the government and a court of law might interpret your right to take photos in a public space can be very complicated. Despite press freedoms guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, the government routinely challenges individual journalists and the general public.
This podcast was edited by Jim Goldstein, who labored intensively with our bulky sound files. Jim is the author and editor of many other podcasts exploring the world of photography. To listen to this podcast, go to: fotovision.podbean.com
