    nowadays even parents need to get a pass to go inside the school compound if they want to see their child.

    don't think any school in sg will let you do that.

    maybe if you propose a tfcd for the school, they might let you in

    well i noticed before at polytechnics photographers doing photoshoots on the premises.
    Not sure if any prior permission was granted though cause things are quite open around there.

    It saw like a "Pose - Snap - Go" kinda thing.

    If you're looking for secondary school setting, Best thing for you to do is to try giving your old secondary school a call and see they're willing to do something for an "Ex-student"

    How about Polytechnics? I noticed(as with post above) that it's quite lax and carefree inside with hardly any attention given to public.

    what would you like to shoot in polytechnics? lol. I believe most polytechnics have their own photography club they use for shoots. =D

    Not if you want to get into secure areas like labs or soundstages. General open areas are a little on the grey side; I would expect that if questioned, the security would expect you to be a student of the campus at the very least, if you are shooting on campus.

    Yep, shooting on polytechnic campus grounds is fine. Just don't go wandering into areas like the labs and all. After all, if you aren't a student there you have no business wandering into facilities that the students pay school fees to utilise. it doesn't matter how you dress (as long as you look reasonably young). I've wandered arnd my poly campus with a camera and tripod often, and no one really cares.

    So go shoot if you want if you get stopped, just apologise and leave, they won't arrest you or confiscate your camera or anything.

    Ask permission by writing letter to the Pricipal. Most likely permission would be granted...

    Photography club in my poly doesnt seem to do shoots at all. Yearbook committee (which I believe is not related to photography club) does the shoots.

    ha, yea man, which poly are u from. I'm front NYP and my club and I do quite an amount of event shoots. yearbook and all may be done by an external or inhouse photographer. Of course, I believe that's whether you have what it takes for the school to hire you for that. =D
