Photography Policy #7
This policy pertains to the publication of all photos at NodeConf US by both official photographers and attendees.
Because it is very difficult for photographers to know everything they capture in a given shot until after the photo is taken this policy pertains exclusively to the publication of photography and not the capture of it.
Rule Number One
Anyone can ask that a photo of themselves be unpublished or that they be removed from the photo at any time for any reason. Refusing to do so is a breach of the Code of Conduct and will result in you being expelled from the conference and banned from future events.
"NO PHOTO" Lanyards
At registration special lanyards are offered for people wishing to opt out of having photos published of them. The lanyards clearly state the words "NO PHOTO."
The conference prohibits photos being published at any time where the subject of the photo is wearing this lanyard. If an attendee chooses to be photographed they should remove their lanyard prior to being photographed. Community members that notice photos published which violate this rule should notifying the publisher and CC the conference.
Photos taken where the subject(s) are not wearing a "NO PHOTO" lanyard that may include other people w/ NO PHOTO lanyards in the background or out of focus cannot be published during the event but may be published after the event. Community members that notice photos published which violate this rule should notifying the publisher and CC the conference.
NO PHOTO lanyards are a signal to those publishing and potentially viewing photos to help communicate and regulate their preference but choosing not to wear this lanyard does not exclude someone from being able to exercise [Rule Number One]. Regardless of what lanyard someone wears they can still ask that a photo of them be unpublished.
The only exception to the opt-out lanyard and Rule Number One is the "Family Photo" taken at the end of the conference. For this photo all attendees are asked to come up for a group picture at the end of the event. If you wish to be excluded from this photo do not come up and appear in it.
