As you may know my “day job” is working on riders issues here in Northern Ireland and those coming from the European Union, normally referred to “Rider’s Rights”.
So while putting About Ye Design together I came across issues regarding – “Photographer’s Rights”.
These issues mainly concern:
Needing permission to photograph someone in public.
Needing permission to photograph property.
Taking pictures of children.
Where you can and cannot take pictures – National Security – Harassment – Invasion of Privacy.
Taking pictures of police officers – here in Northern Ireland this is especially relevant - and their powers as regards to the above.
And your responsibilities.
I can’t find anything if there is any specific – laws – rules – regulation – guidance for Northern Ireland.

The UK Government has issued guidance to the private security industry after photographers mounted a nationwide campaign to stop guards acting overzealously.
