    I was at London, there is a stretch of restaurants in a modern building close to the London Eye, along the river. I was using a tripod and tried to shoot the river with the building in the scene and I was stopped by the guards there....I was actually standing at the public pavement along the river, now even on the walkway of the building....so do you think its only in SG? No...

Well in the end, they have no choice but to let me go.... Tot i share this story to you guys!
    haha good for you! but isn't it rather troublesome? for a couple of pictures, you have to sign an NDA and all? i'd just delete the pics and walk off. haha i'm a typical meek singapoleeean.

    Just to share my experience, I was there and was told no photography was allowed despite people around me snapping away with their PnS. The guard told me tripod photography is not allowed. So I went to another private property and shot it anyway, from my HOUSE.

    Lol, agreed, but sometimes, i had enough of all these guard that made me pissed off and to stand up for my rights.... I mean, as long as i don't infringe any laws, rules or regulations, why make my life as a photographer any harder? Right?

    The policy adopted by some building management is quite strange. What checker meant is you are not allowed to take photo of the building or surroundings within the property. But if you have a subject (person) posing in the picture it is allowed. I had the same experience in Ngee Ann City. I took a shot of the Tiffany window display. The security guard said it is not allowed, but did not insist I delete the photo. The next moment a tourist posed next to the window display and the shot was allowed. I questioned the security what's the difference, he can only say management policy.

    cannot blame security sometimes, they bo bian must follow management's policy, else they suffer the consequences if the management finds out. But that only applies if the security guy is nice about it and not aggressive/offensive.

    in CalebK's defense, (and not to spark anything off), checkers did "micromanage" the comments of 2 posters before, albeit in jest. ok lets drop that subject and stay on topic

    This thread is interesting for the wrong reason?! =p

    Anyway, yesyes, as long as its a private compound and you are within it, you are govern by its rules and regulations. You can however, take shots from outside the compound if you wish. With cameras being so affordable nowadays, its a matter of time before more places enforce the 'No photography' restrictions...

    True....i think the only person to blame is not the guard, building management or even the building owners for that matter.... it started to get worst right after 9-11. Well, it is a yes and no kind of answer, sometimes contradicting. In the building management point of view, priority is security, a photographer point of view (i'm merely just taking a picture what...). So we as photographers be it PnS or Pros, we must think for them and try to strike a balance to this, you want the country peaceful, then bear with such rules and regulations. But but but, sometimes, i feel that the guards are overboard but giving bad attitudes.... they should learn to smile more. Well guys, correct me if i'm wrong on my statement here

    Get a ultra wide angle,another someone to post for you, place the person at the edge of the frame, then take a shot. Go home, crop and problem solved.
