Help NYC Photographers!

The Mayor’s office in New York City is seeking to
instate a new rule that would require permits and
proof of insurance for any group of 2 or more people
using a camera in a public area. The regulations would
require that anyone using a tripod or shooting in one
location for more than 30 minutes (including set-up
and break down time) must obtain permits and show
proof of insurance of at least 1 million dollars per
occurrence. Read more about the new rules here:

We all need to act now to fight these proposed
regulations that will place absurd restrictions on the
freedom to photograph in New York City’s public
spaces. This affects not only professional
photographers but also the First Amendment rights of
anyone with a camera to spontaneously document what
happens on the streets of this city. Due to pressure
from advocacy groups, the Mayor’s Office has agreed to
extend the period that it will allow public commentary
until August 3rd.

Picture New York has initiated an online petition
opposing the new rules, which over 12,000 individuals
have signed so far. The petition is closing on August
3rd.

Thanks for your attention and please continue to
spread the word about this important matter!
