That's pity. I thought that 'photo-phobia' exists in my country only. Here I am arrested regularly but each time they have no formal reasons to accuse me of anything, so all the stories terminated by nothing.

I think it is real kind of phobia, so it is more medical issue rather than social one. The guys do not take into account that anybody can shoot ANYTHING just with 10MP mobile phone and nobody will even notice the shooting... But DSLR cameras (the more with tripod) acts as a red color for some definite kind of people, though in fact they can not even explain clearly what is a reason.

Let's hope that the Kansas photograper will have no serious problems caused by these damned idiots.

I would like to know these "trade secrets". Thank God that we'll always have PETA's undercover employees to know what really goes on behind closed doors.

Agree with you.

On me, the human rights to know has much higher priority comparing to idiot's rights to arrange secrets of everything :)))

Why? Just think what adventure we would have together here in Moscow. You have a chance to be arrested by KGB!!! :))) For this you need only to shoot in any shop, at any railway station and, generally, at ANY plave except for bamboo gardens (cos' there are no bamboo gardens in Moscow) :)))

“arrested for having allegedly driven their vehicle onto private property that was clearly posted ‘No Trespassing.’ ”

Google must be arrested too. Or the one who stay all day long on the orbit ABOVE my property.

One has to add here NASA, RosCosmos, all the airlines and their passengers, military aircrafts, birds, etc... For short, nobody will survive the Kansas prison. Hopefully they have place enough to provide everyone by a separate bed :)

This is the reason I started doing photos with my mobile phone and I saving money for a small mirroless camera. A Sony NEX 6 is the best for this. I will put it hidden in my backpack and triggered via wifi. So sorry that Nikon mirrorless cameras are too expensive, small sensors and no wifi inside. :(

Waiting for scientist to invent some kind of anti-gravity device to get rid of the tripod too :)

Not by nothing, the good light and the subject are gone in the meanwhile.

I am your man! Wait a little to buy my new small camera and we will go together to make photos all over the place! Also, editorial photos with you, busted near the tripod will bring good sales. :)

“Kansas was actually one of the first states to adopt a law restricting access to agricultural operations and prohibiting the photographing of agricultural facilities,” says Susan Schneider, Director, LL.M. in Agricultural & Food Law at the University of Arkansas School of Law. “The Kansas legislature passed the “Farm Animal and Field Crop and Research Facilities Protection Act” (K.S.A. 47-1825-1830) in 1990. This statute makes it a crime to ‘enter an animal facility to take pictures by photograph, video camera or by any other means.’ ”

I wonder why :)

“A landowner’s rights do extend to the airspace above his/her property. But the airways can be analogized to a public highway. If one is traveling through the air for a legitimate purpose in a reasonable manner at a height that would not unreasonably interfere with the landowner’s enjoyment of his/her property, in conformity with relevant flight regulations, then it would not be a trespass,” writes Schneider in an email.

You understand now why I asked you about telescope & long lenses. I don't need them for shooting the Moon... :)

if we start talking about this... "Should it be illegal to document what goes on in slaughterhouses? Some state governments certainly think so."

Alvera, together we should visit Igor. All of us arrested from three different countries should constitute an international affair and make world news. You are correct! Super editorial photos ... Igor on his face with arms pinned behind his back, closeup of handcuffs, Alvera getting clubbed and me running away like hell.

There is certainly Photo Phobia in the US. It is almost like a crime now to carry a camera around. I have had security guards called on me when I was taking pictures of a flower outside of a business. I guess someone was worried I was trying to take pictures of them, but when I told them I was just taking pics of the flower, the security guard laughed and told me, oh ok, that's ok. But, I have had several things like this happen. So much, my family members pick on me about it and we all just laugh about it. :)
