Ethical Statement

As a photographer, a lead photographer and as a member of a team of photographers, I am determined to making images, photographs and portfolios that represent everyone with respect and the dignity in which they deserve. I and the team will respect the wishes of clients and of those who are photographed by Darren Smith Photography if they so wish.

As Darren Smith Photography shoot a variety of subjects, our aim is to produce images and portfolios which reflect our clients and their wishes.

All of these are within the site to monitor how the site is performing that the pages online are being used and where pages are less popular, are modified to improve their function and effectiveness.

 

Consent will ALWAYS be requested if we can make use of any image shot for ANY client before being used for other purposes. Darren Smith and the creative team take pride in their work and if a client’s image is used for promotion, it is always because Darren Smith and the team take pride in their photography and skillset.

Our primary focus is to provide the best service to our clients and customers without causing any disruption or destruction to our surrounding environment or people associated with our work. This includes print media being minimised to save waste, travelling to venues having considered the environmental affects and to protect our wild habitats by not utilising GPS metadata.

We also insist on a no discrimination policy against gender, race, colour or background in all our work. Clients and customers can feel free to approach our friendly team without any fear of prejudice .

I and the rest of the team here at Darren Smith Photography promise to let everyone know where, when, and why I am / we are taking photographs. Where their photographs and data associated are being stored, as well as who else will have access to it.
