Photographers who do not understand their basic rights tend to approach legal issues with blissful ignorance, extreme caution, or reckless abandon.
Foolish souls may cross the lines of propriety to obtain exclusive images, while overly cautious photographers may miss once-in-a-lifetime photographic opportunities because they fear legal repurcussions. Each of these photographers will suffer as a result of their approach.
As this book shows, insight into the law can make you a more effective photographer because it enables the exercise of judgement that allows you to achieve your objectives even in difficult or risky situations.
