No, because it's illegal to even have guns in singapore. Shooting at those old buildings will result in you getting shot pretty quickly. ;)

Under what law? Sounds like another overzealous police officer who doesn't know what he's talking about. :p

if you want to shoot leisurely at national stadium iirc no problems just inform the security guard there but if you want to have model shoot etc. must apply permit from ssc i think. maybe i'm wrong. :dunno:

the old high court and the national stadium? anyone know and can elaborate?
i don't think there is any issue, to be honest.

but not sure about model shoots, if that's what you're planning.

in any case, security guards will always tell you that it is not legal 80% of the time, but they do not really know what is going on. they're just trying to earn their keep. these two buildings are not sensitive buildings in any sense of the word "sensitive", and if you aren't standing on private/government property, then the security guard really does not have any right to tell you to shoo off.

i agree that's why i'm trying to acertain what's the best way to get permission so we don't get hassled model shoot or not.

the problem is, sometimes you ask permission, become cannot, actually can.

for example, you email ssc, then suddenly their security guards get instructions to chase off anyone looking like they are doing model shoots.

it is always such a hard decision to make. sometimes when i travel, i also have to make that decision, to act blur and shoot anyways, then worry about later, or to ask nicely, and get rejected, and possibly erase all chances of being able to shoot. :bsmilie:
