    There's lots of rumour getting around about your right to take footage.

    Well, in a nutshell, it pretty much goes like this.

    In public, like outside in the streets parks etc no worries of course you can.

    On a private place that is for the public access... yes, such as shopping malls etc.

    On a private domestic type place, yes unless your customer or whoever asks you to stop.

    Now the content of your pics and vids is another thing, and of course what you do with them.

    For example, offensive, explicit footage, sexually arousing footage etc is not on ... so no snapping pics of topless chicks on the beach for example.

    So there you go, dont be intimidated of videoing anything. If you see another tree company and start videoing and they get ballsy trying to stop you etc ... you have every right to. If you are on a customers property and they want to take video of you ... then it's be too bad for you. Then again if you want to take video of your job at a customers place and they say no ... well dont.

    Common sense stuff really.

    That may depend on where the competition was, whether or not there was an admission ticket, etc..

    The OP may or may not be correct regarding some malls. Some local malls here prohibit filming and photography, because its their privately owned property. Sometimes a driveway is a public street and sidewalk. The parking is typically private, but not sure what the laws are exactly. They definitely take charge and halt photography on the inside. Outside, they probably have control over what happens in the parking lot, but it should be free to record from a publicly owned right of way.

    For the US, some of the better feedback I've read has been on photography forums like Nikon, where pros and advanced amateurs network. Because its even more essential to what they do.

    Videos of other people may have limitations depending on how they are being used, especially in conjunction with something that fits commercial use.

    I wrap vehicles for a main living. Includes city transit buses. I am allowed to take as many pics and vids of buses. Providing driver faces are not visible and its not inside their facility. Driver thing was a kind request that I voluntarily observe. The building request is a security bylaw.

    The company I sub under can fire us for posting picture of job sites or talking to the media. They have people who search social media looking for violators. Or so we're told.

    We weren't allowed cell phones were I worked, mainly because of the camera. Dealt with classified stuff at times though.
