The photographer's rights are as follows: The general rule in the United States is that anyone may take photographs of whatever they want when they are in a public place or places where they have permission to take photographs.. Examples of places that are traditionally considered public are streets, sidewalks, public parks, and recreational institutions. Permissible Subjects- Despite the misconceptions to the contrary, the following subjects can always be photographed lawfully from public places: accident and fire scenes, children, celebrities, bridges and other infrastructures, residential and commercial buildings, transportation facilities (e.g. , airports), criminal activities, and law enforcement officers. Members of the public have a very limited scope of privacy rights when they are in public places. Basically, anyone can be photographed without their consent except when they have secluded themselves in places where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy such as dressing rooms, restrooms, medical facilities, and inside their homes.
