Permit May Be Required For Public Photography in NYC


New York City is planning to mandate photography permits and a minimum $1 million liability insurance for photographers who shoot with one other person on any city sidewalk or street location for 30 minutes or more, or ten minutes for those with a tripod and five people.

Public comments are being accepted on the City’s Film, Theatre and Broadcasting website until August 3rd. I would encourage people to mention the negative effect this will have on NY’s economy, as well as the embarrassment it will bring to the agency in question (and it’s leadership) when the courts declare it unconstitutional.”

  1. If you are staying more than 30 minutes, you are likely a pro, and should have insurance.
