Street Photography in Australia – Your Rights

I’m a huge fan of street photography and have always been inspired by the works of urban street photographers such as Joel Meyerowitz and Trent Parke. As a street photographer it’s critical to understand your rights to photograph in public areas so that if you’re ever confronted on the issue, you have a firm and educated knowledge of your rights and obligations. It’s also important to understand your rights if you’re traveling overseas and intending to do some street photography, some countries have very strict laws on photographing certain areas and it’s important to understand the cultural values of a specific country before happily snapping away at that secret government silo. haha,
This is an article on photography rights here in Australia. Well worth a read.
