SA Alert: Suspicious Activity - Photo Taker: August 19, 2012@ 2030 Hours / St. John Parish near LMR MM 138 LDB

Fellow FSO Workgroup Members (MSOC Port of South Louisiana)

Sunday night, 8/19, at approximately 2030 hours, a white male with Canadian identification, was observed taking photos at one of the oil refineries located in St. John Parish. The individual was interviewed by security and the sheriff's department and then released. He was traveling on 2002 Kawasaki KLR650 Ontario plate # 1607P. NRC was notified.

Dunno who he is, but. Really? Interviewed by the Security Staff and Sherif because he was taking pics? Dude... If I was him I would be really pissed... As per law I can point and shoot my camera wherever I want as long as I don't do it through a window!!!!!!!!!

As a photographer, I would not take shots of an oil refinery unless I had permission. Things have changed since 9/11.



I would be interested in KLR camera!

As long as you are in public property nobody can tell you what shoot and what not to shoot... At least in every "free" or civilized country. That being said, prohibiting photography is like somebody is telling you "You are not allowed to watch that way".

But... I see that you are not allowed to take pics of a police station, to or from a bridge and so on in the US... Is that right? If so, then everybody must take your cameras, hit the streets and start taking and publishing that kind of photos. Public property is public and so is the space that sorrounds every buildind and so are the "public buildings" as PD, Courts, etc. Thats a privilege and a right every photographer must defend...

They might be a bit on edge there, isn't that the same parish as the recent cop shooting?


PS - I've been known to take refinery pictures...

Nope, incorrect. I've got dozens of such pics. In plain view of law enforcement types.

I took a shot of the US Embassy in Caracas, Venezuela driving by and as we came back around the embassy security was quick to hold us up and ask wtf was going on with the camera. After showing our passports and explaining my intentions they let up a little bit and let us on our way. They don't screw around much down there

Here was the security guard outside that stopped us:


Just getting a shot of the old homeland while abroad and it gets me in trouble


It is quite the secure compound in Caracas and loads of people trying to get in for papers and such:



Me and my terrorist look, taken from up above looking back down on the embassy from a safer distance

The La. cops better look up the 1st amendment and read it. If its in public view then you can photograph it. As a North American based photojournalist for the past 35 years my income has depended on it. It’s just another dumbass cop that does not know the law. Plenty of that going around.

If I saw this sign, I would leave my equipment in the bag.

I no big fan of the ACLU, but this link tells you what you need to know. Again, rules are often made up on the spot since 9/11. Yhave the right to take a photo and I am sure you will receive a heartfelt apology after spending a night with Bubba in the tank.

Photos...

I got busted with a friend taking pics at the border coming into the US before 9-11.He was in the passengers seat while I was driving. He (border patrol) asked to see the photos and made him delete them.

As a photographer, it's a shame that you have no interest in defending photographer's rights. Nothing has changed since 911, except a growing number of people seem all too willing to relinquish their creator endowed, self evident rights.
