Managing personal data (PDPA)

I am a photographer/videographer. Do I need to obtain an individual’s consent to take a photograph or video recording of the individual?


  • Generally yes. Exceptions may apply depending on the circumstances for e.g., where the photographer is acting in his personal or domestic capacity, such as when he takes photographs or video recordings for his own personal purposes at a gathering for family and friends; or when the individual appears at an event or location that is open to the public.
