Date: Wednesday the 29th January 2014.
Location: Nunnington Hall, Ryedale
Model Release forms
Models: The images will be part of a collection of eight photographs that document
Nunnington Hall. From Workers in the gardens preserving the National park to the
workers in the shops selling local produce from farms nearby. The models used will
be other people taking photographs as it is more of a documentary type of
photography rather than a photojournalist approach.
Props: Props used will only be that of what is found at Nunnington Hall, such as the
tables and chairs found in the interior of the site.
Risk assessment completed? Yes
Contingency: Should the images I want not being available at Nunnington Hall I will
go to a York College football training session. This is to document the behaviour and
movement of people.
This will take place the following week from the trip at Eleven o’clock. A camera and
tripod have been booked again for the Monday of that week to prepare should the
Photographs taken at Nunnington Hall not up to a standard.
The location will be at York college and their sports field. A risk assessment has been
taken into consideration for the photography also.
The tutor in charge will allow consent to images being taken and for precautionary
measures, model release forms may be taken into consideration.

Health and Safety is thought about when looking into the contingency plan because it is just
as important as the original shoot, the same hazards may occur so it is vital that all possible
outcomes are thought about for the safety of the person taking the images to people
The control of Hazardous and health regulations is considered when shooting outside
because you are outside for a long period of time. When looking at the location of the
shoot and that it is next to passing cars on a busy road the safety should be looked at in
more detail. Not only are you in the environment of a dangerous area, you are potentially
consuming harmful gasses if you are over exposed to the outside conditions.
Also when looking at the inside health and safety, it is important to recognise the damages
long periods next to the computer can do. As these images would not be heavily edited the
need for regular breaks will not be as urgent as other photographic applications.
What Health and Safety legislation might you need to consider in this project?
Health and safety at work act 1974. I am to consider the general duties of the students when they the
care of the tutors. I will therefore look at students acting responsibly and being safe when around certain
sites or equipment. To also consider the tutors (People in charge of students behaviour) and the way
they should act. They should be trained to deal with certain aspects of the trip and to set an example on
how to behave in the premises of a National Park. They should also know whether the location of where
the students going is safe. Also instruct the students to take photographs without supervision.
Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations act 1992. This may be considered when
editing the images taken on the computer. Regular breaks to be taken to avoid eye problems.
Control of Hazardous and health (COSHH) regulations (2002). Registration, evaluation,
authorisation and restriction to chemicals (REACH) both of these are used for risk assessment
Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER)
