Club DVS Photo Policy

Taking photos at DVS Events is not permitted (unless explicitly instructed).

It’s too easy to take a casual selfie and catch a stranger who doesn’t consent to being in your shot in the background. We respect everyone’s privacy here.

At the door you will be required to allow us to put little stickers on your phone’s cameras to ensure you don’t just absent-mindedly forget, and also so that nobody takes any sneaky shots. The stickers are phone-friendly, and your device won’t be harmed.

If someone is seen without a sticker on their phone, they will be asked to show they have no photos from the event, then to accept stickers on their device or leave immediately.  If your sticker falls off innocently, come ask for another.

On the other hand, if you’re an exhibitionist (like most of the Crew), you’ll want some photos from the night, right? Well, we got you covered. We have House Photographers, some of whom you may  already know from scene events, each with their own individual styles.

Our photo policy for our House Photographers is purely “opt-in”, so you must ask the photographers to take your photo, or the photographers will ask you first BEFORE they take a photo of you. Discretion is important, and consent to be in photos is a priority. Photos are not permitted to be taken downstairs, so the House Photographers will only take photos in the upstairs bar area.

Our photographers will be easy to spot; not only do they have cameras, but they will also be wearing armbands, and you should feel free to ask any of them for a photo of yourself / your group. They will ensure that nobody accidentally ends up in the background of a shot, and we will be posting all the night’s photos on our site some time after each event.  You may use them freely as long as you keep our logo on the photo.

If you want a photo but you don’t want it appearing on our site / twitter / etc, you may still have your photo taken, just ask the photographers to note that you do not wish to appear in public photos and we will not post your photo anywhere. We want to make sure you make memories at our events whilst respecting your wishes to not not have your photos posted in public.

Thank you for your cooperation and respect for everybody’s consent.
