GDPR Compliancy & Privacy Policy

I'm sure you've all been inundated with emails these past few weeks as everyone gears up for the GDPR to come into effect. Today, May 25th 2018, all businesses must be GDPR compliant.

I am taking it seriously as a small business owner who takes photographs of you and your family. Therefore, I have implemented a new GDPR privacy policy which you can read in detail here.

What is GDPR?  The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) very significantly increases the obligations and responsibilities for organisations and businesses in how they collect, use and protect personal data. At the centre of the new law is the requirement for organisations and businesses to be fully transparent about how they are using and safeguarding personal data, and to be able to demonstrate accountability for their data processing activities.

It will give greater control to individuals over their personal data by setting out additional and more clearly defined rights for individuals whose personal data is collected and processed by organisations and businesses.

For more information on GDPR, what it is and how it affects you - visit 

I promise to only ever use your information or images in a way that is fair and in legitimate interest of my business.

If at any stage you would like to discuss anything to do with your contact information, the use of your photographs on my website or how I store your data, please send me an email on hello@nessarobinson.com

 

Starting off 2018 with a bang!

I've been working as a photographer for almost 4 years now. Time is really flying past! It's been hard to juggle everything - being a mom and wife first and wanting to start my own business second. Why is it that we get our best ideas when we're our most stretched? With 2 kids not yet in school and next to no sleep, you would think I would give myself a break. But photography is something that I'm just drawn to and it's what keeps me going. I'm happiest when I'm documenting people with my lens - whether it's my people or the lovely clients I've had the pleasure of working with over the past few years.

But I haven't always been able to commit myself to the business as much as I've wanted. There have been ups and downs and major life distractions (not to mention our growing family!). But these past six months in particular I feel like I've been overflowing with ideas of where I want to go. I wrote down a list of business goals for 2018 in October of last year and one by one I'm working my way towards them.

One of my first goals for 2018 was to apply to be accepted as a member of the IPPA. To have my work reviewed by industry giants and accepted as a high enough standard was my goal. Only I couldn't find the time to pull together a portfolio because I was so busy with clients in the lead up to Christmas! So on January 1st, I finally sat down and pulled together a sample of images that I felt represented my best work and I filled in the application and hit send. I quickly tried to forget all about it.

Today, I'm absolutely DELIGHTED to let you know that I've been accepted to the IPPA. I am now an accredited member and as such will be head to the industry Best Business Practices and Code of Conduct.

2018 is on track to be the best year yet for Nessa Robinson Photography - and I cannot wait to start making all of the other things fall into place and share them with you here soon.
