Follow the Leader

Well it is about time that a law enforcement agency has finally figured out we, the citizens of the United States, have basic civil rights. High marks for Washington D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier who has finally made it known to her officers that photography is NOT a crime. I don’t think it is news to those of us in the industry that professional photographers and videographers, as well as ‘Joe Citizen’ with a cell phone camera, have been getting arrested at an alarming rate across the country. Numerous law suits have been filed against the police departments, some ending in large monetary settlements.

So…Well Done to Police Chief Cathy Lanier for her courage in leading this fight to uphold our basic rights.

About Jack Foley

Beginning my journey in the film lab business many years ago and was lucky to have some great bosses who were also great teachers. They gave me a priceless education into what happens to film during the back end, which in turn taught me, how to be a better photographer. Being a bit of a nerd I moved to digital capture pretty quickly and have never looked back. I do miss those long quite days in my darkroom, but I don't miss the toxic chemicals we used. I have shot everything form weddings to high end fashion advertising and loved most of it equally. I also teach at the Center for Digital Arts and am currently working on a new body of work that will, hopefully, inspire some and become many of this blogs topics.

  1. Well now that’s about time. Any time government loosens control on what we can and can’t do I’m a happy guy. Thanks, Jack
