[Lifehacker’s Thorin Klosowski has a terrific article on what you can and cannot photograph in public.]( I get a lot of questions about this. My standard response has been to pass along [Bert Krages’ fantastic pamphlet](, of which every photographer should have a copy, but Klosowski’s article is much more readable. Which makes sense: Krage’s brochure has a different rhetorical purpose.
