Usually when I create a blog post its full of pictures and details. Sometimes however, its against my clients wishes.

From time to time I come across clients who need to maintain ‘a low Internet and social media presence’. There are many reasons for wanting enhanced privacy and its not just from those with celebrity status. There are those simply wanting to maintain privacy at one end of the scale through to those who’s jobs, personal and even national security depend on it.

Previously I have had requests for privacy where a family member has an abusive ex-partner, where children have been taken into care by foster parents, a few high ranking military officers and a member of special forces. I’m always happy to oblige.

In these cases depending on the level of privacy required we can take steps from simply not using the images for any marketing or PR purposes through the usual blog posts right the way through to keeping the images completely off-line, including no online selection gallery for the couple and only transmitting the images via a secure USB stick with military grade encryption.

I can even store the images separately on such devices so they are at no risk if my Internet connected computer is hacked however it must be understood the images can not be backed up easily with this last measure.

In some cases it may be necessary to add or remove a section of your wedding photography for example to state I will not store the images for backup purposes or provide an online gallery and this is done depending on your individual needs.

For peace of mind I am also Counter Terrorism Checked and have full Security Clearance from both the Home Office and Ministry of Defence and know how to dress and behave in the mess if required. I also have a completely clear enhanced disclosure (formally CRB check) dated March 2015 I am happy to show.

Whether you require private images for your album,  a low key wedding or coverage of an event at a military installation, I am happy and able to help.
