    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??

    cheers

    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!

    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).

    I have just spoken to Una, as I'm a student theres no problem Wink 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 Wink

    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.
