If you are a photographer who has ever been harassed by the cops or other “authorities” raise your hand (I am raising mine). Yesterday, via Aphotoaday.org, I came across Ian Spiers’ blog Brown Equals Terrorist. Spiers outlines the ways in which his civil liberties were deep-6’d while on an ostensibly innocent photo venture to the famous locks in Ballard, a burb of Seattle.
Today I learn from the same incredible source (thanks Melissa) that Kevin Bjorke began a resource for freelance photographers called PhotoPermit.org on July 4. The forums (to discuss your woes) and other links provide an outlet, should you need one to vent your frustrations while working in the field.
Take a load off; you will feel better once you have shared your story.
