You can photograph anyone you like. It's the publication of those photos 
that's the problem-- whether it's for editorial or advertising. I don't know 
when the laws came into effect, but my guess is that it's relatively recent. 
I note, also, that many of Doisneau's famous "candid" photos were actually 
models posing. As for pictures in public places,  It's also illegal to 
photograph in the NYC subways.  Arthur
