Gloucestershire Archives charging us to photograph records (Announce)

Hello, Interestingly enough Gwent Record Office have a rule about this and charge £2.00 per day with an annual licence at about £50.
As a researcher I find it much faster to copy archives with my camera, take the images back home and deal with them there without the opening and closing times of the archive causing constraints on my time, be it The National or Gwent Archives.I can read and analyse them in relative peace and comfort.
The NA does not charge a fee yet but I wonder if this will spread further?
