An Important caveat

I have added the following text to my Services page:


 

In September 2014, I signed my name to the UN’s HeForShe campaign. My intent was to confirm (to myself, as much as anybody) my commitment to the principles enshrined in (for example) the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. In signing the UN’s campaign, I was committing myself to do more than just hold those principles dear to me, but to actively stand up for them: to oppose those who would deny another person their fundamental rights.

As a part of taking an active stance on these matters, I want to state the following:

Whilst I take great delight in shooting photographs for people, and am always happy to accommodate your needs and desires wherever possible,

  • If you have a misogynistic attitude, or if you believe that misogyny is not a global, cross-culture, cross-societal problem that needs to be tackled; or
  • If you have a racist attitude, or if you believe that racism is not a global, cross-culture, cross-societal problem that needs to be tackled; or
  • If you have a homophobic attitude, or if you believe that homophobia is not a global cross-culture, cross-societal problem that needs to be tackled;

then I do not want to do business with you.

This is my statement of personal ethics. It’s important to me.
