    they are there in chinatown to take the picture of the subject i complaining.

    if the news really hits the street, i'm going to whack STB for their inefficiency!

    pray hard the news can hits the street.
    Actually, if you look around, there are probably MORE THAN TWO STALLS with 'NO PHOTO' signs up. Just have to look carefully.

    I dont' know if Singapore only, as there's too many countries out there to keep track of.

    I'm pretty sure, although if you know something that I don't; you're welcome to raise it and we can discuss together.

    You must tell them can't shoot unless got model release. Anyway for the news I don't see why they need tot ake your picture for.

    Do be wary of journalists though, sometimest hey can twist a different story out of this whole thing. If i were you I'll request that they run the article by you first, if they want to quote you (as opposed to using you as a mere lead for them to investigate themselves)

    While we all are passionate about this, please please always KEEP A LEVEL HEAD when speaking with journalists. Stick with the facts as you know them. Try to keep emotions out as much as possible, as that will obfuscate and you might end up saying something implicative or can be construed as negative towards hobbyists and enthusiasts.

    NOT saying you not tha MAN, or not in charge, but as mentioned, we all tend to get passionate about this and things can go south.

    See Vince's latest post.

    Again, KUDOS MAN!

    And all the best for your meeting.

    kudos yeobt,

    BUT please people....dont be too happy.
    end of the day, an article in newspaper.
    is anything even going to change?

    will those cheenatown people take down their signs?

    will photogs reserve our rights to continue shooting at more 'public' area?

    will government implement a new law to allow us to shoot freely?

    will security guards with swollen faces-lookalike and purely jealous of guys shooting sexy models change their attitude?

    wil STB setup a hotline for singaporeans to complain about no photography zones when it's actually allowed?

    sadly, ans to all is a optimistic NO.

    if the article highlights such points, at least people who encounter such situations will know how to react, instead of being bossed around

    ONE article won't change the world.

    Neither would two, or three or four...

    But it would increase awareness, and also what +evenstar mentioned.

    Just like anything worth fighting for in life, it has to be a continual effort.

    the WB journalist came n gone.
    i was told that the article would not be out tomorrow becos they will be writing to STB
    for explanation. well, if SM came out the news faster than WB, i think WB will scrap the news
    altogether becos it has no news value liao. in media is, whoever publish first win.

    anyway, the point i brough forward to the journalist was, there's no law to deter
    people from taking picture in public places. if singapore 1 2 stay as one of an attractive n
    welcoming city to the tourists, we must be tolerance towards the idea of free photography.

    well, i donno lor...i just know usa dem strict about these things, and oni in here, i found out model/property releases are not needed by law in singapore.if going by these, then any photo is fair game for sale (other than the obvious security rick one).

    anyway, hopefully something good (crossing and double and tripple crossing my fingers) comes out of yeobt's correspondence...
