Ensure you have the permission from anyone you photograph or record. This includes those in the background of your shot. “Crowd shots” from the front (facing the crowd) are strongly discouraged.

If you’ve accidentally taken a picture without permission, delete it. If you are asked by a participant to delete/blur a picture they did not give you permission to take, do so immediately.

We ask Press photographers to adhere to this policy, as well. A Press badge is not a pass to break these rules.

Upon a first infraction, you will receive one warning from BSidesKC Staff. Upon a second infraction you will be asked to give up your device for the duration of the Con or to leave the Con with your device, your choice. You may return to the Con once you have deposited your device in a secure location, offsite.

There may be official BSidesKC Photographers. They will have professional cameras and Staff badges. They are aware of this policy and are not immune, except in cases where they have been requested to document activities, official parties, presentations, etc., for BSidesKC PR purposes. If you believe that any of the official BSidesKC photographers are breaking these rules, or abusing their privilege, please bring it to the attention of a BSidesKC Staff member.

Thank you for your cooperation!
