Texas prohibits "improper photography or visual recording," as defined by any person videotaping or recording by other means another person in any location without their consent and for the purpose of sexual gratification; it also prohibits videotaping or recording by other means another person in any bathroom or private dressing room without their consent and for the purpose of either sexual gratification or to invade their privacy. In the latter case, posting signage indicating that a person is being filmed is not enough to establish that person's consent.
