BAWAL MAG SHOOT DITO
(NO SHOOTING ALLOWED HERE)
This Movement was borne out of the collective experience of Filipino photographers on unclear and unjust policies that impinge on our rights to shoot in certain locations both public and private, as well as biases against us;
We are photographers. We are artists, no different than painters, sculptors, and musicians. We do not become security risks or economic impediments just by the mere act of using a camera in public places, and we reserve the right to pursue our art for as long as we are not violating JUST LAWS;
We strive to be dynamic contributors to the country’s economy through our businesses, as well as to the promotion of our country as a tourist destination; And
We strive to take on our responsibilities as photographers.
To Public Institutions, Officers and Officials, we call for public consultations on existing orders, resolutions and ordinances concerning our industry and art. We also call for public consultations BEFORE such are crafted and implemented. We call for fairness in the usage of public locations for photographic purposes.
o Private Corporations, we call for dialogue to review existing policies and to search for solutions that would justly benefit all parties. We are partners in economic development, not enemies.
As established by numerous international precedents, public photography is lawful activity, and until any JUST LAW to the contrary, we call that this right be recognized by both public and private sectors.
