Do you need a permit for photography at Metro stations?
if so where from?
http://mosmetro.ru/about/faq/ (in Russian) - no permit required unless you use tripod or professional lighting; no flash that could affect personnel; you should stop on staff or police order.Edited: 19 May 2014, 14:11
for professional/commercial/with tripod yes, you do need a permit (I have no idea where to get it, ask a controller at any metro station), for amateur - no permit is needed. The only rule - no flash neither on the escalator nor on the platform (if you use flash on the escalator you'll hear a lady "yelling" at you)
Thanks very much
Avidclam or Svetakoshka - do you know if it's the same for the St Petersburg metro? I've always wondered about this but have been reluctant to get out my camera and take photos for fear that it will be confiscated.
Accordind to Petersburg Metropolitan rules "All persons within the territory of the underground forbidden: 9.17. Implement film and video, as well as using flash photography without written permission of administration of underground"
So you can make pictures without tripod and flash.
