Michele Yu, HPD’s media liaison, reiterated to me that productions filming on public property “cannot stop anyone from taking photographs.” She was kind enough to suggest that anytime me or any other photographer is harassed by a production over taking photographs to contact her at 529-3238…Mahalo, Michele…
