Need we ask for permission to do a shoot in a park? Like for fashion editorial, or wedding. No huge equipment, no film making,
if it's a public space there shouldn't be an issue right? e.g. fort canning?
hmmm...but then it's always better to 'Double-the-Confirm' before 'Action' as a form of 'Self-Protection'...yah...hehe...!!!
Anything that can take pictures...happy already lor...(..but...Hasselblad_H5D-50 as my Workhorse)
All parks are under Nparks,
shooting weddings, family portrait etc.. won't have any issues. Many people have been done that for many years.
the last time I check with Botanic Garden about photo taking in their premises (within Botanic Garden), you need not apply permission as long it is not a commercial shoot.
I ask them how they classified the photo shoot as commercial shoot?
as long no additional lighting set up, more than two tripods it is fine. (they referring the lighting stand as tripod)
so my understanding is you can mount your camera on a tripod, use a voice activate multi-task mobile lighting stand to hold your reflector or flash than you should be fine.
as for other parks all over Singapore, many wedding couples, family, people have been snapping photos for so many years, nobody rise any issue so far. For commercial shoots, it is necessary to seek permission from the owner of the premises before the shoots.
technical speaking, their is no public space, is either belongs private or our Government,
and FYI, many general public, including security guards, park ranges, classify DLSR as pro gears, so when photographers shooting with reflectors and additional lighting set up as such, whether is real pros or act pro, be prepared to be asked to leave if you didn't seek permission prior the shoot.
