Digital journalism has become a fast growing industry and has been advancing greatly in today’s generation. This is leading to restrictions on photography done in sports events in many different countries, including the United States. There are a variety of restrictions on different contexts.
Let’s take a look at some of these:
The government owns the public property. This land, in general, is not owned by a joint entity and these areas usually include municipal ballparks and fields. These areas are used for sports leagues. In these areas, photography can be done even without taking any kind of permission.
What needs to be kept in mind, however, is the fact that different facilities have different rules for the photographers. There are different kinds of facilities from professional stadiums, collegiate and high school stadiums to municipal fields. Each one of these are bound to their own policies which is distinct from the other. Moreover, even within each one of these facilities, different organizations may have different rules. For professional stadiums, photographers need to have press clearance to receive press passes in order to shoot from the side where they won’t obstruct the audience’s view. Such rules have been laid out for different facilities.
