There is no ‘no-shoot policy’ implemented at the two historical parks within the City of Manila. This was announced yesterday by the National Parks Development Committee(NPDC) and Intramuros Administration (IA). In a joint statement by NPDC Executive Director Juliet H. Villegas and IA Administrator Jose A. Capistrano, Jr., both executives reiterated that the parks are open to the publicand that everyone may take personal or souvenir photos. Only shoots for commercialadvertisements, videos, infomercials, events such as prenuptial, and other commercialproductions need permission from the managements of NPDC and IA to ensure that thewell-being of the photographers are taken care of, as well as make certain thateverything goes smoothly during the shoot. According to Villegas and Capistrano, nobody has the power to prevent the public,especially Filipinos, to take photos in the historical parks. The public is encouraged tovisit Luneta and Intramuros to take photos to share and show their family and fellowFilipinos residing in other parts of the world.
