Reposted from another thread: To my knowledge Philly does not require a permit to take outdoor pictures. For example if I want to take a picture of the cherry blossoms on Kelly Drive all I do is get to Kelly Drive (aka East River Drive) and take said pictures. I do know movie shoots do require permits and there is an office in the city that helps them.

re: #1 PhillyPretzel

At Pershing square the policy is stills only or get a permit. What happens when you show up with a modern DSLR that does both? It makes for an interesting conversations, especially with no crew, no gear save for the handheld camera. The told me no tripod. So I bring my “Magic arm” a kind of camera clamp that lets you compose a long exposure yet not have any gear touching the ground. That seemed to make them quite annoyed.

I see fashion photogs in Riverside Park all the time; I have no idea if they needed permits.

But the ones who have a folding table full of gear and a rack of clothes and makeshift curtained changing rooms… really take up a lot of space. I wish they’d make more of an effort to keep the stuff out of the way of runners, dog walkers, etc.

re: #3 sagehen

That’s where a permit and some rules would be reasonable.

yeah, i ran into this at my local botanical garden. I did a site search for the university’s legal department, emailed one of their lawyers explaining why this wasn’t going to work, and had another lawyer on the staff get back to me a couple of days later saying not to worry about it because there was no enforcement mechanism in place, and they were advising that signs to the contrary be taken down.

There was a dust up a few years back where the cops were harassing musicians playing in Rittenhouse Square. I forget whether it was some ordinance that was being enforced, or the cops were just looking to pound some hippy skulls.

I think it got resolved in favor of the musicians, but I can only imagine the grief and threats they were getting from the cops while this was going on.

If its public property, sidewalks, roads, there is no legal issue with taking pictures. It’s the law.

Sounds like Kansas is desparate for create ways to raise $$$.
