If people are included in those photos and are identifiable, they will be asked to sign a photo release form. Participants are always welcome to deny permission for their photo to be taken when taking part in a Roundhouse program. Instructors are not allowed to take photos of the classes they instruct, or to ask participants for permission to have their photo taken.
