Does GDPR apply to my photographs?

GDPR from a photography point of view is detailed the ICO website, they state that a photograph is NOT personal data if it is not used to record, learn or decide something about the individuals, as in people who are visible in a general scene. And if an image is not personal data then GDPR does not apply. For example: "A photographer is not processing the photograph to learn anything about any of the individuals whose images were captured, nor is it likely that the photographer would ever process the photograph for that purpose. Whilst being processed by the photographer, the photograph would not be personal data as it is not used to record, learn or decide something about the individuals.”
