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. http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/Your_right_to_take_photographs http://www.aph.gov.au/library/pubs/RN/2004-05/05rn37.pdf 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.
