Withdrawal of consent

To enable the continued work of Benjamin Stuart Photography, I reserve the right, with your consent, to select photographs to be used for promotional purposes. To promote Benjamin Stuart Photography, photographs may be displayed on the Benjamin Stuart  Photography website, blog, social media and on brochures/flyers that promote the services of Benjamin Stuart  Photography. Photographs occasionally will be submitted to lifestyle photography blogs, on lifestyle photography related websites and magazine articles; providing that the images used are used lawfully and without damage to Benjamin Stuart  Photography's client(s). The rights of the people captured in these photographs are protected by Benjamin Stuart Photography as detailed in this privacy policy. Benjamin Stuart Photography respects the privacy of every client and therefore every client photographed by Benjamin Stuart Photography, must consent for photographs of themselves to be displayed.


We adopt a safe and responsible Social Media Policy. While we may have official profiles on social media platforms users are advised to verify the authenticity of such profiles before engaging with, or sharing information with such profiles. We will never ask for personal details on social media platforms. Users are advised to conduct themselves appropriately when engaging with us on social media


Under GDPR legislation, a photograph may in some instances constitute a form of personal data where they can be processed to allow “the unique identification or authentication of a natural person”. Benjamin Stuart Photography will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless consensually contracted to do so. Guests at weddings appear in photos taken by Benjamin Stuart  Photography as a part of the visual recording of the event in photos. Guests captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Benjamin Stuart Photography as detailed in this privacy policy. In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, Wedding clients and guests are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’.

The taking of photographs of wedding guests when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Benjamin Stuart Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual's personal data which overrides those legitimate interests. Operating within the parameters of legitimate interests as laid out in GDPR legislation, the disproportionate effort involved in providing privacy policy information to all wedding guests at the event and the degree to which it would distract us from performing our job renders it infeasible to do. Wedding clients are therefore requested in their contract to direct their guests to read this privacy policy in advance of the event and to advise them to contact us in advance with any concerns around the processing of their personal data, namely being photographed.


We take care over the processes around looking after personal data stored on our physical systems. Benjamin Stuart Photography holds the following personal data of clients: i) names ii) addresses iii) phone numbers iv) email addresses within soft copy as well as soft copy wedding client day plan documents. Soft copy contracts and day plans are safely stored within my password protected home office iMac and backed up to encrypted external hard drives. Client photos are safely stored within my password protected home office iMac and backed up to encrypted external hard drives.


Although we only look to include quality, safe and relevant external links, users are advised to adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website. We cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website despite our best efforts. Users should therefore note that they click on external links at their own risk and we cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.
