    If the case gets any worst, I will invite some of my media friends to make a news out it in order to get some attention from all the management of all buildings in Singapore. In Singapore any small little problem like this will cause a great commotion in news circle.

    So guys, please be considered. Thanks

    I don't see why there is a need to ban ladder if it is not obstructing the public, it's not the ladder fault

    it is the photographer's misuse of the ladder...
    It is no bodies fault. Just that Singaporeans are know to be complain kings and queens. by using ladder that way, they are obstructing everyone's view and chances of looking at the perfomances. So the crowd buay song, complain and in the end photographers suffer.

    hmm....
    interesting thread......
    banning of ladders ? i think dun have to go to that extremes rite ?
    ultimately.. the main complaint is about photographers using ladders at the front row.. not about photographers using ladders per se..
    but thinking about it.. even if ladders are banned, but people (regardless of photographers or not) still went to 'book' the first few rows of a perfomrance, wouldn't that also block everybody's view ?
    Ban photographers ? i think that would result in a decline in crowds (if its a normal fashion show n not the appearance of some artiste, or a major event like the SFW etc), which is the last thing that the managment wants. Besides.. banning photograhers mean no PnS cams, no cam phones, not jus DSLR users.. By then, u will c another thread starting saying that these places are so unfriendly etc etc....
    Ultimately, u cant please everybody.. ladder gang or not.. as long as pple using ladders dun stand right in the front row, that is good enuff........

    The simple thing in my opinion is to have zones

    Zone for viewing inclusive of mobile phone cams, zone for photographers without ladder, another zone behind for photographers using ladder. No photographers allowed to take pictures outside the appropriate zones, else get fine.

    Best right? Make SG a fine-r city...

    Actually, there is nothing wrong with using ladders. Before ladders, media photogs used hard cases to stand on when they are late for an event and do not have a good spot to shoot. Its used to shoot over the heads of those in front. Its a good piece of equipment to have - a ladder or a hard case to clear the obstructions. Internationally, you'd see all kinds of stuff photogs use to stand on. Hard cases, ladders, chairs, cargo cases used to keep their equipment. When you got a job to do, just do it.

    Of couse, refusing a wheelchair bound person is the other extreme. What's wrong with giving way to a disabled person??

    So... don't make a mountain out of a molehill but do be considerate if you are only shooting leisurely....

    Don't be a nuisance and kill the golden goose.... I hate to see photography earning a bad name in Spore....

    yeap, strongly agree to the point marked in BOLD.

    Just like you ban chewing gum, still got bring in, so just prevent lor. For this case, management may just have to just take a walk down the front rows to make sure photographers are not on ladders obstructing the view then let the show begin. THen all will be happy.
