Photo Assignment Advice

My wife works for a local pre-school nursery.

They specialise is caring for children with disabilities and are a registered charity.

They have asked me to take a few photos of the children who are leaving this year to go to 'big school'.

They will then print the photos and sell them to the parents to add a bit of money to the coffers.

I have obviously agreed to do it for free to help out.

Any advice no matter how general or detailed would be most appreciated.

Re: Photo Assignment Advice

It is tempting to set up a backdrop and a light or two and then have a conveyor belt system. This can produce good results, but obviously all of the pictures will look the same.

I suspect that there will not be too many kids leaving, so you might be able to individualise the shots which might, in turn, make them more saleable.

Group shots would be nice too, and maybe you can persuade the staff to have their pictures taken with the kids too. This might also bring in more sales!

Re: Photo Assignment Advice

Thanks Graham. I have a backdrop and some tripod with brollies and flashes so I'll do that.

Like the idea of the staff. Most of the children have a 'key worker' so they might like a memento. Thanks!

Re: Photo Assignment Advice

Beware the Child Protection laws. Don't wish to be a party-pooper but I have been the CEO of a child/adult caring charity and I would suggest you/your wife consider....

1 you will probably need a Criminal Records Bureau Enhanced Disclosure.

2 you will need the permission of all parents/guardians who have a child involved.

3 have the Board of Trustees approved this?

4 have the Board considered if this will affect their charitable status and where they stand with HMRC.

Unfortunately, common sense doesn't prevail any more and chances are someone will moan. So, I'm not saying don't do it, just think about all the legal angles. Dabs has covered the technical side of things
