PHOTOGRAPHER NOT A TERRORIST by 


Australian photographers are losing their rights to freedom of expression. And it doesn’t matter whether they are full-time professional, part-time or strictly amateur, as every person who has a camera can be threatened with unjust laws and regulations.

The rights of Australian photographers and film-makers are being seriously affected by a myriad of rules and regulations that impose prohibitive restrictions, high fees, and bureaucratic application protocols.

What we should have in this country are simple rules – like they have in the national parks in the USA – which allow photography to be carried out in all places where the public can go.

    Love this and have a feeling that I may have seen one or two at the Arts Freedom Australia Protest Rally?? Love the collage on the right too.

  • I was wearing it at the rally, and I understand that one other person was wearing one too.

    Its based on the Arts Freedom Australia tee and one from a similar organisation in the UK.

    Ooooh that means we crossed paths. Spooky.

  • I was rather dissapointed not to find a single RB member when I was there. I knew they were there… but I was not aware of who was going or if we were gonna meet-up or anything…

    hmmm … its always funny if you’re taking long exposures on a tri-pod in a city… and the police talk to you … even if its in a VERY PUBLIC PLACE… like the yarra or fed square…
    … and they seem to think that you might possibly be planning something, or breaking privacy rules…

    And they dont understand that long exposures (3-6secs) will blur any moving object = people… even upon showing the pictures… (this guy must have been 50+) …probably needed reading glasses…

    Wanted to confiscate the camera, so I told him that would be a breach of 1997 civil rights laws (i made that up on the spot… but it worked)

    Insanity really is widespread it seems…

    A friend of mine took a pic of a power plant and got a call from the police later that day… freaky?

    At least I got some great flinders st pics :)

  • If a cop wants to confiscate your camera… or your memory card [both of which they are not allowed to do] tell them that they will have to arrest yo first.

    Then speak to your lawyer and sue the Police Department for unlawful arrest.

    Fuck these nazis…

    I was taking photos of a pigeon inside the grounds of a hospital one day..i guess the thought the pigeon and i were conspiring together. Don’t they realise that if you wanted to be a terrorist you most probably would be taking pictures with your phone camera or something smaller? The security guy did feel rather sheepish asking me to stop photographing the pigeon.
