    The Department of Homeland Security has confirmed in an FPS Bulletin that people have a right to photograph the exterior of federal buildings from public areas. Read the bulletin for the full run-down

    The bulletin reads in part: “For properties under the protective jurisdiction there are currently no general security regulations prohibiting exterior photography of any federally owned or leased building, absent a written local rule or regulation established by a Court Security Committee or Facility Security Committee. Furthermore, it is important to understand that this regulation does *not* prohibit photography by individuals of the *exterior* of federally owned or leased facilities from publicly accessible spaces such as streets, sidewalks, parks and plazas.”
