Photography and filming at the Congress

Please be advised that filming and/or photography will be taking place during the main events of the Congress, in the spaces of the TU. Our photographer, Moises Feria, will be respectful of individuals, making it clear and visible that he is taking pictures.
If you do not wish to appear in any images captured please sit at the back of the lecture theatre and/or let us know, so
that we can take appropriate steps to ensure you are not included. The photographs/film will be used by the Congress to document the events, to share them online and to promote the Alexander Technique in general. Group pictures may also be included in Congress publications or in Congress promotional materials and may also be published on the Congress website.
Images with prominent or clearly identifiable individuals will require an agreement by the individual in question.
