no, you don't need a $100 permit to take snapshots in laguna beach: digital phot


the city of laguna beach has cleared up some confusion about its photography permit policy. a broad interpretation of one of its two photography permits created a minor uproar recently, as many people took it to mean that the city was requiring a $100 permit for anyone taking photos. it seems now that this wasn't the intention.as it stands, the city has two permits for two different types of photography: commercial and 'non-commercial'; the latter has a $50/hr rate with a minimum of two hours required. this meant, as the policy was interpreted, that anyone taking photos – including personal photos – in laguna beach were required to buy a $100 permit.the non-commercial permit category's vague description resulted in quite a bit of public complaint, and the city has chosen to rename it as a
