    This issue is not new, it has been around for many years. My personal experience with publicparks/camera/guards dates back to around 2005, I think.

    One surefire way to dismiss the guards bugging you is by talking to them in English - with accent
    We used this plenty of times already. Since they cannot answer back and you pretend you don't understand them, they will leave you alone.

    More seriously though, they (guards) cannot classify high-end to low-end cameras. They just based the "professionality" of the shoot via the equipment / paraphernalias used,not only tripods but reflectors,strobes,etc. also. They have this mindset that if a photographer or a group of photographers uses these things, that only means they are professional.

    If you ask them why it is prohibited, they cannot even answer you straightly - coz they don't know in the first place why!

    An official announcement made by DOT regarding no-shoot policy

    No “no shoot policy” at Rizal Park and Intramuros | Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines

    A November 15, 2011 press release from the Department of Tourism

    There is no “no shoot policy” implemented at the two historical parks within the City of Manila. This was announced yesterday by the National Parks Development Committee (NPDC) and Intramuros Administration (IA).

    In a joint statement by NPDC Executive Director Juliet H. Villegas and IA Administrator Jun Capistrano, both executives reiterated that the parks are open to the public and that everyone may take personal or souvenir photos. Only shoots for commercial advertisements, videos, infomercials, events such as prenuptial, and other commercial productions need permission from the managements of NPDC and IA to ensure that the well-being of the photographers are taken care of, as well as make certain that everything goes smoothly during the shoot.

    According to Villegas and Capistrano, nobody has the power to prevent the public, especially Filipinos, to take photos in the historical parks. The public is encouraged to visit Luneta and Intramuros to take photos to share and show to their family and fellow Filipinos residing in other parts of the world.

    “We wish to inform the general public that there is no ‘no shoot policy’ in Rizal Park and Intramuros. In fact, we encourage the public and all the visitors to take as much of photos of themselves, document their visits, to talk about it and share it with their families and friends all over the world,” said Villegas.

    The two said parks are attached agencies of the Department of Tourism that continue to exert efforts to complete the rehabilitation of Luneta and Intramuros to help revive the old glory and beauty of these tourist spots.

    Recently, an estimate of 300 professional and nonprofessional photographers was granted permission by Rizal Park’s management to take part in the Photo Walk for an international competition. The said event was also participated in by 50 bloggers who took photos of the park for their websites.

    National Parks Development Committee and Intramuros Administration joint statement:

    “The National Parks Development Committee (NPDC) and the Intramuros Administration (IA), attached agencies of the Department of Tourism (DOT), wish to inform the general public on photography rules in both the Rizal Park and Intramuros. There is no such thing as a ‘no shoot policy’ as the public may take personal photos in all public places of the Rizal Park and Intramuros.

    “However, those intending to use both venues for commercial advertisements, video infomercials, events (such as prenuptial, et cetera), and other similar events are encouraged to secure a permit, and coordinate with the respective agencies, to facilitate the documentation of activities.

    “The DOT’s policy is to encourage all visitors to the Rizal Park and Intramuros to take as many photos of themselves, to document their visits, to talk about it, and to share these with families and friends all over the world.

    “Both the Rizal Park and Intramuros have undergone major upgrades and rehabilitation since last year, and will continue to do so in the coming years. At present, the NPDC and the IA are working hard to bring back the glory of Old Manila, so that visitors and tourists will have a memorable and enjoyable experience of the parks and historical landmarks.”

    For fellow forumers and photo hobbyists, just some tips:

    1. They (security guards) cannot confiscate your camera, equipment, memory card or even ask that you delete any pictures already taken. If they do take it without your consent, it's called ROBBERY.

    2. If accosted, ask them what their basis is for making you leave (it is a public park, for pete's sake!). If they answer, its because you're taking photos for commercial purposes, ask them for proof. If they can't substantiate it STAND YOUR GROUND. Call the PNP if you have to and tell them you are being subject to GRAVE COERCION. NOTE: They cannot make you leave the park if you are not doing anything illegal.

    3. Mere possession of a camera or DSLR within the park is not illegal.

    That we don't know. Pero, what the guards are doing or saying regarding bawal mag-shoot still reflects kung anong orientation ang ginawa ng mga superiors nila sa kanila. Hugas kamay na ngayon ang DOT sa bagay na yan.
