Kuwait photographers face DSLR camera 'ban'
The country’s Ministry of Information, Ministry of Social Affairs and Ministry of Finance have ruled that photography should be used for ‘journalism purposes only’, according to a report in the Kuwait Times.
Mohammed Al-Eisa told the paper that he first experienced difficulties when taking pictures of people in public a decade ago, and has since opted for wildlife and still life photography instead. 'I started facing problems the very first day I bought my camera,' he said.
Amateur Photographer contacted the Kuwait Embassy in London for an explanation but had yet to receive a reply at the time of writing.
