    Default Photographing @ Indoor Stadium

    Just being curious, a raise of hands how many people actually knows that "you are not allow to take photographs at Indoor Stadium Premises?" Which it means it included outside indoor stadium, the Grass field and promenade(wooden walkway beside kallang river)

    I happen to have a photoshoot there and were chase out, according to the the security guards, "photography are not allow on the Indoor stadium premises". which I wonder, isn't Indoor stadium one of the Landmark of Singapore? So what happen to those people who took photo during events, tourist ad family outing photo shoots?

    anyway one care to enlighten?

    Just managed to call the PR from Indoor Stadium, they said 'as long as if its within the Indoor Stadium Premises, no photography is allow. You'll have to apply for permit, and if its for commercial use, they'll charge you $1000 for the shoot'

    Anyway, I saw the people at the restaurant in Indoor Stadium happily snapping.... I guess next time we'll all need to buy a cup of drink before we can shoot

    From Security Guard
    They said "Sorry you cannot take photograph of Indoor stadium as background, we'll have to make you erase if you have take any of it"
    We replied "Then can we take the condos(pebble bay) as background?" (we're standing on the promenade, beside kallang river
    They said "No, you cannot. As long as you are standing on Indoor Stadium premises, you are not allow to take any photograph"
    We ask "then why tourist and some other people example: family outing, are allowed to take photos?"
    They replied "Actually they cannot, but we didn't see them, if not we'll stop them too"
    We ask " then how about if we go to the other side(the bridge at in between pebble and indoor stadium) and take Indoor stadium?"
    They Said "then we cannot do anything...."

    From Indoor Stadium PR Dept
    I ask "Why such stern rules about photography? even disallow on taking other building as background?"
    She reply "Security reason. Indoor Stadium is VERY STRICT on its security so we don't allow any photography session unless permitted. EVen mediacorp needs to apply permits, and if its for commercial, we'll charge you $1000"
    I ask "I see people patronising the restaurant at Indoor stadium snapping away, so it makes then 'secured'? So by patronising the restaurant automatically make Indoor stadium 'Risk free'? Your security guard shoo us away without even asking for IDs, photography purposes etc and follows the book, what will it represent to foreigner on the image on Singapore? esp when Indoor stadium is also a landmark"
    She reply "as far as she knows, any photography session or videoing needs permit"

    Anyway, the guy that pop out from Indoor stadium, wear a blue uniform with a police/cisco belt buckel, was a unidentify person as when we ask the security guards about this person, he said "there's no such person. all security personnel are either from their security company.... "

    All i can say is, rediculous.

    i was at ding tai fung restaurant at junction 8 last weekend and was shocked that i wasn't allowed to take pictures of the chefs preparing the dim sums. if you've been to any din tai fung outlet, you'll know that their kitchen is not covered, and a big glass panel will encompass the entire place so that customers can see how they prepare the dim sums. if they have already done so, what is wrong in taking photographs.? and i wasn't even using my DSLR - i was using my handphone camera.!

    I think most of us or all of us dun even know that we can't take photos on indoor stadium premises...its just that no security guards come and stop only...indoor stadium dun even have signs that says "no photography allowed on premises"

    erm...no offence but i think more or less wrong example. Din Tai Feng is a restaruant as in, we paid to eat there, but your house is somewhat private? For the different of these 2 I think its obvious....right?

    Hey.. how about a more appropriate example; you having dinner in the restaurant, the restaurant manager took a picture of you and your friends or other customers for promotional use. You like it ??

    Or you sitting near a 'glass panel' seat having dinner, 'someone' outside the restaurant taking your pictures , what do you think? Is he going to sell my pic, put it in the internet, for his school project or other "purposes"...

    Reminds me of a group of friends of mine, went to Hong Kong and visited a very traditional and famous "Char Chan Tan". After the meal, they wanted to take some pictures and chosen a spot right under a "No Photography" sign. As they wanted to have a picture of the whole group, they actually waved over the boss's son to help them take a shot. Thing is, the guy just obligated with a smile some more. Good attitude.

    Ya, better example.

    But for the case of Indoor stadium like not really related. Because unlike the restaurant, Indoor stadium is a landmark of Singapore, I cannot imagine the next time you wanted to take a photo of the Merlion, the security guard ask you for permit.....

    Paranoia over terrorism and STOMP kills genuine photography!
