BSides Las Vegas Photo/Video/Recording Device Policy
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. No photo/video/audio recording in the Underground Track, period.
Photos of a speaker can be taken only with permission from the speaker. Be polite to your fellow participants and do not stop the presentation to ask for permission to photograph.
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 BSidesLV Staff. Upon a second infraction you will be asked to give up your device to BSidesLV Safety & Security 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 are two official BSidesLV Photographers. Both 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 BSidesLV PR purposes. If you believe that either of the official BSidesLV photographers are breaking these rules, or abusing their privilege, please bring it to the attention of BSidesLV Safety & Security or any BSidesLV Staff member.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO PRESS, VIDEO OR AUDIO RECORDING, OR PHOTOS ALLOWED IN “UNDERGROUND”
Thank you for your cooperation!
