I would really appreciate some feedback regarding photography during ice skating competions. I am the parent of a skater and I get written permission from a small number of other parents to photograph their children (as well as mine) during competions. I strictly abide by the rules and never photograph any other skater or any practice session. I have been advised that plans are in place to ban all videoing and photography and to have a professional onsite who will charge for photos and videos. I feel that skating is an expensive enough sport already, and that this money making activity is very unfair. I would be grateful for any feedback and to find out whether parents around the world are allowed to photograph their children on the ice.
