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.



We take care over the processes around looking after personal data stored on our physical systems. Kerrie Mitchell Photography Ltd holds the following personal data of clients:
i) Names
ii) Addresses (including email addresses)
iii) Phone numbers
within soft copy and sometimes hard copy contracts as well as soft copy client ‘shoot plan’ documents. Soft copy contracts
and day plans are safely stored within Kerrie Measor's password protected home office iMac and backed up to two encrypted external hard drives. Hard copy contracts are held in Kerrie Measor's secure home studio which is locked when not in use. Client photos are safely stored within Kerrie Measor's protected home office iMac and backed up to two encrypted external hard drives. An additional cloud copy of all images is stored on GDPR compliant Dropbox.



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”. Kerrie Mitchell Photography Ltd will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless consensually contracted to do so. Guests/attendees at events appear in photos taken by Kerrie Mitchell Photography Ltd as a part of the visual recording of the event in photos. Guests/ attendees captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Kerrie Mitchell Photography Ltd as detailed in this privacy policy.
In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, clients and guests/attendees are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs of guests/attendees when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Kerrie Mitchell Photography Ltd 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 event guests at the event and the degree to which it would distract us from performing our job renders it infeasible to do. Clients are therefore requested to direct their guests/attendees 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 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.



We may display any photographs to promote Kerrie Mitchell Photography Ltd on the Kerrie Mitchell Photography website and blog, on social media, on 3rd party blogs, on photography related websites, in exhibitions, in advertising, brochures, magazine articles and other such material, providing that the images used are used lawfully and without damage to Kerrie Mitchell Photography’s client(s). The rights of the people captured in these photographs are protected by Kerrie Mitchell Photography Ltd as detailed in this privacy policy.
