Photographer alerts cabinet minister to Hyde Park photo ban
An amateur photographer is set to lobby his local MP after camera club members were banned from taking photos which include children at the Winter Wonderland fair in Hyde Park.
Meanwhile, Lafbury has received an email from Winter Wonderland organisers, PWR Events.
In the email customer service manager Kate Hofstetter said all photographers, including students and camera clubs, must be ‘accredited and briefed’, in the interests of visitor safety.
She spelled out the rules they must follow:
• No cameras on the ice rink
• Photographs of children may not be taken
• Tripods are allowed as long as you don’t obstruct the pathways, otherwise security will ask you to move along
