When we undertake a project for a charity, NGO or good cause we do this in good faith. Our photographers and film-makers have good hearts and are giving their time out of kindness. They respect local customs, people, and also have a duty of care not only to ensure they do not exploit any of the subjects in their lens but also do not abuse the position they could find themselves in.
With that in mind, we have policies in place that all photographers and those working with us, including any charity, NGO or good cause, agree to respect and adhere to.
