Haven't seen any restrictions there. An airport is naturally a place where lot's of pictures are taken. Restricting this would definitely screw the high ranking that Changi gets in customer surveys. I even see people snapping away in the security area.
Your question about locations is pointless as long as you don't state what you intend to shoot. Walk around, open your eyes and your mind and you'll find good places and good subjects everywhere.

Nothing. I went around alone, taking pictures from all kinds of objects: ceiling, lamps, installations, even the entrance to security area. But that was 1 year ago. Maybe now they have increased the alert level of all paranoid androids with walkie-talkie.

couple of weeks ago, I took some photos at T1, T2 and T3, with tripod set up. nobody bother me.

btw, strictly no photo taking at custom areas, be it at airport, causeway, train station or jetty.

I guess if you ask them they will always insist on some permission, makes them feel important. Or they suspected you will do more than just walking around with your camera. But since catchlights wasn't even bothered when using a tripod I ... :dunno:

By protocol, they need to inform that permission is required.

In real life, thousands upon thousands of passengers and visitors filter through the facility every day, and the majority will take photos of all kinds.

Imagine the administrative nightmare they have to face to enforce the ruling, or if everyone started writing in asking for permission. :sweat:
