I saw a female golfer being photographed so I took a few shots. Up rushed the PR people “you can not take photos, this is a private shoot”. I politely pointed out it could not be “private” in a public space. More PR people moved in. They asked for my name and identification. Being polite, I obliged. “OK” said the PR, I am closing the shoot”. I pointed out I already got my pictures. Had they not made such a fuss I would not have checked out the shoot. The intelligent thing, if they were really bothered would have been to buy the pictures from me. It turned out that apparently she was one of the worlds leading lady golfers with a new fashion range.... not very sensible, if the shoot was that sensitive to hold it in the middle of the day between the Palace of Westminster and the snack bar where a lot of press photographers hang Out between events. for the benefit of my learned friends, I have not put the photos into stock etc. Just a nice little story.... 1 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
