Unit 16 photography legal & ethical issues & health + safety

  1. 1. Legal & Ethical Its important to remember that certain parts of the colleges are out of bounds to the public. Only hired professionals are allowed to enter the colleges and take photos with the permission of the University. this becomes a legal issue if I choose to consistently ignore warnings from college staff. The good thing about this is they have places laid out for the public to get some ideal pictures of the college without breaking any legal or ethical boundaries. Its also not a legal issue for me to photograph people in public however, it is definitely an ethical one. Plans to minimise this have been pub in place. That is to wait and photograph subject with minimal or no people in the shot. This will create no legal issues and minimise ethical issues. Health & Satefy Health & safety is an important issue. Here are some plans that take account of health and safety. When photographing a subject it is important to check your surrounding environment for any dangers such as; sharp objects, unstable buildings etc. Another thing is that I must make sure that I am not causing any safety risks such as obstructing traffic (human and vehicle), any objects on me cannot cause any harm. I must try not to take pictures in crowded areas, for this such reason. It also can spoil an image. Taking images in large crowds can also cause distractions for people looking at me taking pictures, this is also another reason why I must not photograph in areas with large crowds. If I follow all these precautions then I should be able to achieve my brief safely. Unit 16 Photography Legal & Ethical Issues & Health + Safety
