Peter Gill Photography & the GDPR

I do not store personal data about pupils or staff that I am photographing. Exceptions and how I deal with them, are detailed below


How does the GDPR affect school photography?

When I take photographs in a school I don't collect any personal data of the pupils or staff that I am photographing unless I am ask to do so by a school representative. Each image is assigned an 8 digit code. After the photographs have been taken, they are then stored electronically and deleted after 2 years or earlier if requested by the school.

All jpegs and DV files will be sent to the commissioner with

Your files will be encrypted when they are being transferred (TLS) 

During this process at no time do I link an image to any personal data, or receive any personal data about the pupils or staff. 


How does this affect schools?

I am committed to working closely with all schools to ensure that I assist them with GDPR compliance. If you are a school and would like to discuss this with me, please contact me
