Why we wrote a Code of Ethics

Our Code of Ethics were created with the intention to encourage and preserve the dignity, class and art of the boudoir photography industry whilst maintaining a place where clients and models feel safe and beautiful.

This Code of Ethics formalizes what should be standard photography business practices, and is designed to honor not only the trade, but the women and men whose desire is to look their best while wearing the least – providing safe, creative and private settings both during and after their boudoir / maternity session.

We, Gareth Shaw Photography will…

    • We am representing the Boudoir / Maternity industry and my business
  • Not share my client’s images without their consent
    • and will acquire written approval beforehand
