National Photographers’ Rights Day

Naomi Interviews Shawn

Yesterday was the first-ever Photographers’ Rights Rally in Los Angeles, Ca. The event, known as National Photographers’ Rights Day, or NPRD, was organized by “Discarted” and a flickr group was created to explain the motivation behind the rally and to share information and photos from the event.

We met at the Hollywood and Highland Metro Station and after a couple of hours getting to know each other, camera gear discussions and taking photos, we took the Redline down to Union Station.

I met some great people, took a few cool pictures and wished that this was a monthly event (at least) as it was just too important to be a once a year thing and it was a great experience as well; to get out on the streets and capture the many characters of Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles.

This particular photo was taken at Union Station of video-blogger Naomi Mercer interviewing Discarted about the Photographers’ Rights Rally. To see more photos from my perspective, you can view my flickr set created for the event.
