I'm not here to bite you.
I'm a guy....who happens to be holding a camera.
Believe it or not but most of the time what I'm filming is usually beneficial for the subjects involved. Sure, if you're on trial or a politician you may not want to see me, but when I'm sent out on a warm Sunday afternoon to get some warm weather video and I end up at a public golf course in Northeast Baltimore I'm not there to do some expose about golf course embezzlement or stalk someone on the back nine. I'm there to get video of people enjoying the warm weather and just playing golf. Seriously!
So when the local course rep rides his golf cart up to me in a haste asking for authorization and permission from them to film on a PUBLIC course, it gets a little frustrating.
I deal with a lot of red tape bullshit when I film places. (Malls are the worst) I've come to expect it from certain places. But not a golf course off of St. Lo drive. Come on! Just let me get 5 shots of people teeing off and if they don't want to be filmed, they'll tell me, and I won't! If anything I'm giving FREE press to an outdoor activity that benefits the city. Don't you think I'd have an open invitation?
I'm not here to steal children.
I'm a guy with a camera.
