Where we are asked to photograph at schools, kindergartens, sports clubs or other organisations with minors, it will be standard practise to provide proofing photos online with password protection. Any related online web gallery will be provided as part of, with IT and print lab operations supported by Queensberry Ltd, based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Password details may be provided at the time of photography to known associates of the organisation being photographed (ie teachers, coaches, parents etc). Post event, password & access details will only ever be provided to a sole representative of the organisation who has asked for photographs. This will be disseminated at their discretion within their respective community. Photoshots will not provide gallery passwords by email or phone to unverified enquiries. In the event an enquiry is made directly to Photoshots, details may be provided where that enquirer is already known to Photoshots, or has an established sales history.

Photoshots will work with all client organisations to respect any known protection order or privacy concern, as it may relate to any individual or group. Any privacy concern is best established prior to photography. If not known prior, ideally this is made known to Photoshots before any gallery details are shared with the respective community. Options can be explored to facilitate separate access for such content where a genuine need has been established.

In the event any individual may request the removal of an individual photo, this will be accommodated. In the event any individual may request the removal of a group photo, this will be accommodated where practical based on general consideration to all others, after consultation with the organisation / group concerned. There are various levels of password & gallery protection available. The best approach will be determined in conjunction with each organisation. The outcome will be a balance of privacy, administration workload (either by Photoshots and/or the oganisation in question), which may also have some affect on the cost of goods sold.

NZIPP / AIPA Standard Photographic Terms and Conditions of Engagement will apply for all photographic jobs. These terms can be referenced at the footer at This covers the ability by Tony Stewart or Photoshots to use imagery for the purpose of self promotion, and to provide imagery to each organisation for archival use.
