Why Booking a Photographer with a DBS Certificate Matters
In the world of photography, capturing memorable moments is a vital part of our craft. I, Steve Lowrey Photography, understand the significance of creating a comfortable and secure environment for our clients. This is why we believe that booking a photographer with a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate is a matter of utmost importance.
A DBS certificate, previously known as a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check, is a valuable tool that ensures the safety and well-being of everyone involved in a photoshoot. Here’s why it should be a top priority when considering a photographer:
Helping to protect your children and women of all ages
- Client Safety and Peace of Mind: Knowing that your photographer has undergone a thorough background check brings a sense of security. This is particularly important when working with vulnerable individuals, such as children or vulnerable adults. Your safety and peace of mind are paramount.
- Professional Credibility: A DBS certificate reflects a photographer’s commitment to professionalism. It showcases their dedication to maintaining the highest ethical standards in their work. It’s a mark of credibility that sets a photographer apart in a competitive industry.
- Compliance with Legal Requirements: Certain photography assignments, especially those involving minors, require photographers to have a DBS certificate as mandated by law. By booking a photographer with a valid DBS certificate, you ensure that you are adhering to these legal requirements.
- Trust and Reputation: Reputation is everything in the world of photography. Clients are more likely to trust and recommend a photographer who can provide evidence of their background check. This trust goes a long way in building a photographer’s reputation and clientele.
- Versatility and Flexibility: Booking a photographer with a DBS certificate expands your options for a wide range of photography needs. Whether you’re planning a family portrait session, an event, or a commercial shoot, you can have peace of mind knowing that your photographer is versatile and adaptable.
- Quality Service: A photographer with a DBS certificate is more likely to offer a quality service. They understand the importance of professionalism and safety, which translates into a smoother, more enjoyable photography experience for you.
In conclusion, booking a photographer with a valid DBS certificate is more than just a practical choice; it’s a decision that speaks to your commitment to safety, trust, and quality. At Steve Lowrey Photography, we take pride in our commitment to professional excellence, and our DBS certificate is just one example of how we prioritize your well-being. When you choose us for your photography needs, you’re not only selecting a skilled photographer but also a trustworthy partner who values your safety and satisfaction above all else.
