The technological revolution has resulted in great benefits but also has raised many ethical considerations. Moor (2005)3 has proposed a three tiered technological revolution, reflected by Brey, Floridi & Grodzinsky (2005) 4 Many issues result from the introduction and everyday use of digital technologies. The power stage of the technological revolution as proposed by Moor is used as the methodology to explore its relevance to photography and the technologies that in turn complement its use. This exploration will be followed by examining the ethics of the technology when it affects vulnerable children. Mobile phones and cameras have multiple uses, including organizational data gathering .. There is confusion regarding what images of children are ethically responsible, and how far these images should be regulated to limit their potential use on suspect web sites. Compliance to Moor's model raises ethical considerations which need to be addressed by the relevant communities.
