Ed will be speaking at the Association of American Law Schools in New York on January 3, 2014.  He will be discussing the “Ag Gag” laws which have restricted photographers’ access to farms, ranches and food processing facilities photographers even when covering health and safety issues from the photographers’ point of view.  See our article on Ag Gag laws in this blog.

If you have had any incidents where someone has sought to prevent you from photographing a meat processing plant, farm, dairy, cattle ranch or food retailer Ed would like to know about it. He will be revealing the concerns that photographers have to a host of lawyers who generally have no clue about what it is like to make a living covering news or hot button issues.
