Outreach

Sometimes we asked to provide speakers or panel members. On occasions we are able to twist the arms of one of our (appropriate) volunteers to provide a representative view. Please remember that he / she will not be able to provide specific legal advice, more of an overview of the general legal position.

If you think we might be able to help you to help us, please make initial contact via the site here. A reminder: all of our work at SceneThat is free. We may ask that you make travel-related arrangements specific to your event.

Help us to keep this site up-to-date and useful!

You can help in a number of ways:

  • If you see anything on our site that you know to be inaccurate (including such things as typos etc) please let us know via our contact form.
  • It is very possible that we have not been informed of reports of challengeable specific actions taken against photographers. Please let us know...

If you've come to SceneThat to find information connected with photography and the law, and feel we've missed a topic, please let us know. We'll do our best to include extra sections that meet your needs!

Be part of the solution

Photographers around the country act as our eyes (and ears), keeping us aware of incidents and acts of 'officialdom gone mad' in relation to photography. You can join our team by simply giving us a 'heads-up' alert. We'd rather get several alerts about the same thing, than miss one! Please use our contact form in the first instance, and let us know if you'd like to help further.

Sometimes, we get asked if we have any vacancies for staff positions. Please remember that SceneThat is a totally voluntary organisation, and as such opportunities for paid work are rarer than hens' teeth!

Thoughtful photographers

Although we can't give specific legal advice on SceneThat.co.uk, we offer one general thought here.

Every driver in the UK knows that, as a driver, you are expected to have a reasonable understanding of important motoring law - or The Highway Code as we usually refer to it. We strongly encourage photographers to prepare themselves by gaining a broad understanding of the main laws that they could come up against. Like with the Highway Code, you are not expected to be an expert, but reasonably well informed. From that foundation, the rest is mainly common sense, a good reference and access to your own qualified help if you ever need it.

Being considerate and polite goes a long way (as we often tell some officials!).
