Your Rights as a Photographer in the US

Here are the main points you should know:

  • When in public spaces where you are lawfully present you have the right to photograph anything that is in plain view
  • When you are on private property, the property owner may set rules about the taking of photographs
  • Police officers may not generally confiscate or demand to view your photographs or video without a warrant
  • Police may not delete your photographs or video under any circumstances
  • Police officers may legitimately order citizens to cease activities that are truly interfering with legitimate law enforcement operations
  • Note that the right to photograph does not give you a right to break any other laws

Be sure to read the entire article to make sure you know your constitutional rights.
