As a professional photographer working in our community it is essential for me to help and minimise the spread of any infection. Even though I have always operated a clean studio working policy I have introduced some new working protocols to meet government guidelines as well as common sense initiatives to protect both meyself and you.
Like all small business I have been hit by this pandemic lockdown and am eager to get back to work, but I can only do that safely with your cooperation, which includes a no touch protocol and sanitization on arrival.
Where possible I will conform with government guidelines on social distancing, our pre session chat will involve talking through the session and what is involved so you can be nice and relaxed in the way the session will run
Please note there are sanitisation stations both on the entrance/exit and in the studio, please feel free to use both as often as you would like
Please if you are feeling unwell do not come to the studio for your session. Let me know as soon as possible so we can try and reschedule an appointment for you
EXTENDED SESSION DIARY
I have extended the gap between each session to prevent any client cross over as well as to allow extra time for post session cleaning
Obviously, we ask all our clients to thoroughly wash their hands after using our facilities in accordance with government guidelines
All our changing facilities, including baby changing stations will be cleaned between shoots
The rest room will be cleaned following any usage by clients and staff
All props used for photoshoots will be thoroughly cleaned before being used for another shoot
You will be given a dedicated collection time for your photographs to ensure there is no crossover of clients.
The diary has been rearranged to ensure no crossover and I am working to a strict “By Appointment Only” rule as well as ensuring our contact is minimised with the social distancing. As we say “2 meters doesn't mean we don’t love you” in fact by respecting the 2-meter guideline as well as our no touch policy, the session will follow and still feel like a great experience. I will follow guidelines on grouping and numbers at all time and adjust to the numbers in a session allowed. When shooting on location I will only be photographing one family at a time, with an extended time slot to allow for appropriate client & studio sanitisation protocol.
ON ARRIVAL WE WILL ASK THREE SIMPLE QUESTIONS
1. How is everyone feeling?
2. Has anyone had a cough or any flu-like or Covid symptoms in the last 14 days.
3. Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms within the last 14 days, including a visit to hospital?
Prior to all sessions our sanitisation and cleaning protocol as a minimum include: Hand Gel on Arrival. Designated secure coat and baggage area. Washing hands regularly before and after any session. Cleaning of all client areas and furniture, including toilet facilities, door handles & counter tops. Post Session cleaning of studio props that clients might come in contact with.
