It’s NEVER ok to take (or post/send/keep) an image of someone under 18: · showing their private parts (genitals, anus or breasts) for a sexual purpose; · posing in a sexual way; · doing a sexual act; or · in the presence of someone who is doing a sexual act or pose.

But if you are taking photos or videos in a way that is offensive or a nuisance to those around you, this can be a crime.

For example, even though most beaches are public places, you can get in trouble for taking invasive photos of people in their swimmers without their permission.

Private property is a space where the owner can set rules or restrict entry.

This includes homes, shops, sport and performance venues, museums and galleries, schools and similar places.

These places can make rules that ban people from photographing or recording any part of the space or the people within it (unless they can be seen from a public space).

Even if they don’t have specific rules, keep in mind that taking photos or videos of art or performances can break copyright laws.

There are some things that you are never allowed to photograph or record no matter where you are.

This page explains the laws that apply when you use the photo or recording functions on your phone.

It also explains what you can do to stay out of trouble and your options if someone has an inappropriate photo or video of you.

There are different rules for photographing or recording things depending on whether you are in a public place or on private property.

A public place is a social space that is open and accessible to all, like a park.
