    Today I experienced unfriendly guard.
    I was in Northbridge, walking past the park where there was a large public event: The screening of the cricket on a big screen with tents and chairs set up.
    I was walking past, on the footpath (not in the Park), took out my camera to take a photograph and the guard shout at me from afar "YO! NO CAMERAS!". I said OK, and walked on.

    I just emailed the council to ask if we are allowed to use cameras in Northbridge.
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Soon Singapore is going to be a NO PHOTOGRAPHY CITY...the 1st in the world....just as NO BUBBLE GUM etc. Had the same problem at Marina area during the Canon Marathon, was shooed away by GUARDS at walkway....at Millenia Walk(MW) Sculpture Yard.......even SAM allow photography in some of their show, and MW has the policy of NO PHOTOGRAPHY on their "PUBLIC SCULPTURE''......and was even told not to aim my camera from the sidewalk along the roads around the SACRED WALK.....no amount of argument could get you anywhere with these GUARDS.....but when as in the case of the Molest case in a Shopping Centre...they are not in the position to be involved.....had a similar case at my work place when a Taxi Driver got abusive with 4-letter words......its betw me and him...none of their business.....

    I wonder will they stop tourists?

    Or shoot with a foreign-looking friend, see who he approach first.

    Photographers, we seldom or never stood our ground and challenge them to call the police.

    We allow th guards to run us over, we complain here on CS, but have we done anything?:

    I am not arguing with the guards, not worth my time, I have challenged them every single time to call the police. Meanwhile, I continue to shoot, got them mad, but everytime, there is nothing they can do.

    If I am on public space, I can shoot all I want.

    They probably wouldn't do that if you/your friend just made a multi-thousand dollar purchase from their shop.

    Anyway, I faced some of the same **** of no photography when I am here overseas. Like "Do I look like a terrorist to you?" . Bah. Like what some have mentioned here, I think all these are just bullsh*t measures. Any real threat would not be coming from someone lugging a tripod and equipment. A cam hp is more than sufficient for capturing useful images for whatever nefarious motives and purposes they may have.

    So many encounters with the security guards about "No Photography".

    Anyone in the security guards profession would like to post some comments about this issue? What kind of instructions are you been instructed by your boss to handle people taking photos?


    We have heard enough of our side of the story, it's about time we hear theirs.....

I asked him to show me where is the sign that says "No Photography", he can't produce the sign, just say that Security says cannot means cannot. I wrote in to the management and they just say "sorry" but we have decided that photo taking "inside" the building is not allowed, but "outside" is ok....and to take photo of the inside of the building, I must write in...

    I mean, say what????

    Any similar encounters????
    i kena the same problem before, but i still managed to capture a shot of the cone in and out..



    try sneaking..

    I just went there hours ago at about 7:20...

    I went inside, and snapped a few pix of the cone...then reviewed my shots, and snapped a few again...then changed angle, so I stayed for quite a while, nothing happened...
