+ - SPAM: Digital photographers face ejection over lenses 1

Submitted by

destinyland writes "Zooomr CEO Thomas Hawk was ejected from a San Francisco art museum because the security guard apparently thought his expensive camera could be used to spy on female employees. Another photographer notes that "many people consider a professional-looking camera a threat," and the state of California has even passed a law against telephoto lenses being used to intrude on celebrities' private lives. Hawk is routinely confronting security guards who argue that photographing their buildings represents a "security threat." Ironically, four weeks ago while attending Microsoft's Pro Photo Summit, he was told he couldn't even photograph the lobby of a Hyatt Hotel."

Digital photographers face ejection over lenses

  • I'm a member of a local photography club. Recently we went to take photos at an amusement park. When the group of us (all carrying expensive, large cameras) suddenly showed up, a security guard advised us: "Don't take pictures of the children. We've had complaints. Etc." Pedophilia hysteria I guess. Of course, the funny thing is that we were there primarily to take photos of the rides lit up at night.

After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
