I can't find the topic in the search menu but, did someone mention that you cannot photograph around St catherines dock in London, or they encountered a problem with it??

Hmmm, I don't know I spent a lunchtime there last year and took loads of pics, including this one and no one stopped me. Though I wasn't using a tripod so blended in with the tourists!
thanks for the info, I'll leave the tripod at home!I would hate to be mistaken for a proffesional .....
Kevin, you may regret not taking your tripod, there is a number of other places where you can get good shots and use your tripod....
If you have a monopod, I seem to get away without being hassled too much.
I've used a Bronica SQ on a tripod there without any problems, though I must admit it was a couple of years ago.
I have photographed in St Katherine's Dock without being challenged. Didn't use tripod/monopod though.
It was at a time of year when there were no tourists around - but I still didn't get any hassle.
St Katherine Docks are private property, and looking at their website they charge if you want to use it for professional photographs.
I think the way these things go is that if you start using a tripod they'll see you as a pro, and want to start charging you lots of money! So either write to them and get permission beforehand, or else, just don't use a tripod.
But it's a nice place - I ought to go back there (it's only a few minutes walk from my office).
Thanks for the info Mark, I must be just round the corner from you!
I have just spoken to Una, as I'm a student theres no problem but outside of that, standard cameras and lenses are fine, you start running in to trouble when you get your tripod out and stick a large format box on top of it
thanks everyone for the info today, if it's a nice day tomorrow I'll be over there.
Hey, if you're there at lunchtime (12 - 2ish) and bored, send me an e-mail (see my profile) and we can meet for a coffee.
