Leading Image School Photos Pty Ltd adheres to the below listed policy on photo editing and related topics. We encourage parents or guardians to contact us directly if you wish to discuss your child’s requirements.
We will aim at all times to produce a pleasing school portrait, which reflects an accurate point in time of that child’s life. We will aim at all times to produce only those types of photographs and photographic services that will enhance the prestige of the profession and play a part in raising the general standard of school photography in Australia.
- Definition of Airbrushing: We define the term “airbrushed / airbrushing” to describe glamour styled photographs in which a person’s imperfections have been removed, or in which their attributes have been altered extensively or enhanced and / or retouched / manipulated to look like or take the appearance of a glamour model.
- We do NOT endorse the use of airbrushing as an image enhancing technique in relation to children’s school portraits.
- Definition of Blemish Removal / Retouching: We define the term “Blemish Removal or Retouching” as the removal of any temporary marks that are not a reflection of what the child looks like on a normal day-to-day basis. Examples are as follows: Cold sores, bruises, scabs, and any other similar temporary marks.
- We endorse the use of blemish removal and retouching techniques apon a request from the parents / guardians of the child, providing we take the approach of whether the child’s final photograph will reflect an accurate portrayal of the year of that child’s life and not the small amount of days of that year that any temporary marks might appear. Therefore, if there are cold sores, bruises, scabs or any other temporary marks on the child’s portrait, that do not reflect an accurate portrayal of the child, in the year of the portrait in which it was taken, you may remove any agreed temporary marks with the parents/guardians permission.
- We discourage the word “Airbrushing” and endeavour that the words “Temporary Mark/s” are included in any question description of the removal of any temporary marks on their order forms. An example of what to ask, is as follows: Would you like your child’s cold sore, bruise, scab, temporary mark removed from their individual portrait?
- We do not endorse blemish removal / retouching without the parent / guardians permission.
- We do not endorse blemish removal and retouching techniques on permanent blemishes of a child such as permanent scars or permanent acne.
