CotG Photo Policy
At Chapel on the Green we strive to be a community of consent – and we also recognize that photos are an important way of sharing the work that we do, and connecting with one another. Some people in our community enjoy having their photo taken, while it is uncomfortable or unsafe for others. Please adhere to the following guidelines when taking photos at Chapel on the Green:
- Photos of staff & volunteers – Staff and volunteer participation at Chapel on the Green is considered tacit consent to have your photo taken. We regularly take photos of our staff and volunteers to share and build up support for our program – and you can too! If a group or volunteer has more specific photo preferences, please notify the Chapel on the Green Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can respect your wishes.
- Photos of our guests
- From a distance – photos taken from a distance or from behind are okay. In the event that someone notices you taking a photo and asks that you delete it, do this immediately and assure them that you will not take any more photos with them in it.
- Up close – ask for permission before taking any photo in which someone’s face is clearly recognizable. Please say whether the photos you take might be shared on social media.
- Special Events – On rare occasions or special events when we have a dedicated photographer, a sign will be posted.
