Filming weddings is not one of the categories of business visitor who does not require a permit. The rules specifically mention film crew who are allowed in without a work permit for doing location shoots but that's not the same thing at all.

Re: Best single shooters?

I wonder how much enforcement can be applied, especially as the UK seems to have an open door to all and sundry.

I agree but if you turn up from a country outside the EU with a load of filming equipment they could make an obvious deduction.

You need to get a visa to enter the UK before you even leave the Philippines. I am not sure how tough they are to get but presumably you can pretend to be taking a vacation. With DSLRs you could just claim to be a keen photographer.

All countries reserve work for their own residents. Canadians cannot just drive over the border & film weddings in the US or vice versa.

Re: Best single shooters?

Fair comments Nigel and no doubt accurate too. I guess as a sole operator I have never had this problem. I have filmed in the US, Canada, Africa, Switzerland and many other locations, never been asked if I was on business. Then again I always think of my work as pleasure.

I called a friend who used Ian and they said he asked for a tourist visa and all was ok.

Re: Best single shooters?

Have to agree with Nigel. However for wedding videographers/photographers it is easy to say I am attending a wedding and it's usually end of story.

I doubt if any of the international photographers/videographers actually apply for work visas, nor would I think it is easily granted as every country wants to keep it local.

My 2 cents.

Re: Best single shooters?

I asked a photographer we once worked with who does a lot of destination weddings in the US, Mexico and the Caribbean if he applied for work permits, he said there is no need as long as your client is the same nationality as you (Canadian).

Cheers!
