if my siao-on policeman fren is present during the event and caught that guy taking indecent photos.. that photographer will have been arrested on site.. he can say bye bye to his clean record in this Singapore... so sad to end up court for a hobby gone wrong..
on the other thought, i also wonder why some need to shoot so heavily ? your pictures so important meh ? maybe after that u go home also delete most of it...

One way about it is to ask permission before taking their pic. Most cosplayers will agree to having their picture taken unless they are tired or in need of going to the restroom or about to go off to have their meals. In such cases, they will tell you very politely that it's not a good time (if they just walk off, they're probably tired) but hey, you can always try later when they're more into their character. From my experience asking them for permission and saying thanks to the cosplayers helps.
There are some good general rules to go by in almost any situation.
- Ask for permission, be courtesy, and always put on a smile
- Do not block someone else's view of the event
- Never be rude
- Do not put yourself or anyone else in danger by your actions
- Do not expect special treatment
- When in doubt if something is ok - ASK
Playing by the rules will make the experience much better for everyone involved.

This is all because of one word which is deeply entrenched in our national psyche:
Logging Off. "You have 2,631 messages stored, of a total 400 allowed." don't PM me.
Photography fees is to deter "free-for-all" orgy by restricting photogs. Some of those cosplayers are stressed out with constant photography...even models/talents have rest.
Restriction of flash is because they are not talents/models anyway, why must they suffer paparazzi cams flashing.
Third point is just joking lah... but the idea is to have sufficient distance between photogs and cosplayers.
