Introducing the Photographers Rights Gray Card Set

We here at PetaPixel are pleased to announce the new Photographers Rights Gray Card Set, a nifty accessory that can help you remember your rights and educate others if you’re ever confronted while shooting.

The set includes three durable white balance cards connected to a lanyard with a detachable clip. 10 guidelines for photography are printed onto the back of the gray and white cards:

The front sides are blank, allowing them to be used like any other white balancing cards:

If you’d like to carry along the same rules printed on our gray cards without purchasing the cards themselves, feel free to print them out!

The cards are designed to be worn around the neck when out shooting for quick access whenever you need them for either white balancing or legal guidelines.

The Photographers Rights Gray Card Set is only available to US-residents (for now). It’s priced at $15 with free shipping in our brand spankin’ new store. Get ‘em while they’re hot!

To kick things off, we’re giving away three (3) Gray Card Sets. All you have to do is either leave a comment, or tweet this link: We’ll randomly pick the winners on Friday, August 27. US residents only, sorry.

Update: The cards are now available to residents of Canada and the UK as well!

  • Jack Regnart

    These look pretty cool.. Let us buy them in the UK soon :(

  • Laura Juranek

    Great Idea!

  • Darryl Godden

    I’m continuously bemused when competitions are only open to residents only. In the open and inclusive world of the internet, do we not see how contradictory this is?

  • Donavin51

    I like the idea and product :-)

  • Joshua Komanapalli

    I can’t wait to whip it out when I’m detained for another 3 hours! (only happened once! phew!)

  • Gordon Ryan

    Very cool. I always keep a copy of the rights on me, but that’s a great way to keep them handy and doubly useful.

  • Matt Katzenberger

    That’s pretty awesome. Do want!

  • Stephen

    Wouldn’t mind something like this, shame it’s not in the UK.

  • Anonymous

  • whatwhat


  • Dotan

    Very cool idea!

  • Jason Finkbeiner

    Now that would be useful! Even if only to add confidence when shooting in public and getting those looks from people and authorities.

  • Michael Zhang
  • Norman White

    These are great, but it’s a sad view of society/law when we actually have to have something like this.

  • Monty Montgomery

    excellent idea. any chance of doing them for UK?

  • Red Mountain Photography

    Great idea. Always good to present the facts to those who like to “meddle” in my field photography.

  • Anonymous

    The internet might be open and inclusive, but we’re still waiting for the law to catch up. Until then, it would be pretty useless reciting US law off these cards if you’re outside of the US.

  • BigWhiteBear18

    I like this idea but I’m still skeptical on how well these rights will hold up if I’m confronted.

  • Pat O’Brien

    Very handy!

  • Michael Zhang

    Usually, yeah. Haha.

  • Sol arnu

    look good and dual-purpose too!

  • Brian Hochmuth


  • Acronyc

    I would LOVE a set. U, U… Pick me! XD

  • Nathalie

    Great little thing! I want one!

  • Rob

    We have rights? Who knew! Thanks Michael!

  • Andrew Ng

    Would love to own one to give me a little more courage in street photography.
