Taking Photographs and Video in Public Spaces

Note that if you are taking photographs in a public space that includes members of the public you should try to take images that do not identify individuals or get a model release form signed if possible.

Note that a minor may not be able to consent to a use of their image, so you will need parental or guardian consent.

If you are doing a film shoot in a public space it can be helpful to post a sign that lets a member of the public know that you are currently filming and that if they enter into the shot their image might be used, so they can choose to not participate and avoid being filmed.
