Where photographs are being taken at an event attended by large crowds within a public area, such as a sports event or a festival, the consent of all the attendees is not necessary. The photographs must not be used out of context, and there must be no reason to believe that damage or distress could potentially be caused to the people appearing in the photographs. If photographs are being captured at an event attended by large crowds within a private area, such as a private party, Then we will advise attendees of the photographer’s presence. This could be made apparent on theby event invitation cards or displaying appropriate notice signs at the event. The notice should identify the photographer, how the photographs will be used and that people should make themselves known if they do not want to appear in publicity materials.
Withdrawal of consent
Consent must be freely given and as such you have the right to change your mind. If somebody asks for their photograph not to be used, consideration to all the circumstances will be given before deciding what action is practical and reasonable.
Where consent is not needed
The following circumstances may not require the written consent of the individual being photographed:
• If it is reasonable to assume that the person is aware that their photograph may be published and that neither the photograph itself nor the context in which it is used could cause any potential harm or distress to that person.
• Where the individual photographed is unrecognizable e.g. if they have their back to the camera, or they appear out of focus in the foreground of a photograph while the camera zooms in on object in the background.
