Covid-19 Policy

Safety, both yours and mine, is the fundamental theme to my Covid-19 policy.

For the foreseeable future I will be instigating the following policies:

All shoots with new clients will be preceded by a short phone/video call to discuss in detail the brief for the shoot, saving some interaction on the shoot, plus allowing me to plan safely. I will also talk through things you may have concerns about - I know that everyone has their own ways of managing covid-19 safety and the more comfortable you are the more we will get out of the shoot.

I will be individually assessing each shoot, and if I feel I can't carry out the shoot safely I will let you know. I will also hold the right to leave a shoot if the conditions aren't safe i.e. I feel you are displaying symptoms etc.

I will likely wear a mask on most if not all shoots and endeavour to handle few items other than my own camera kit. I may ask you to handle items i.e. a bin in the background that needs moving out the shot. I will have my own alcohol gel with me and will use this if necessary.

I will notify you if you have a shoot booked with me and I find out I need to be self isolated due to Track and Trace system and/or have symptoms. I will not work if I feel there is a risk of passing on the virus. In these instances I will either endeavour to move the shoot to another mutually convenient day or I will source another photographer for you if I can find someone available.

You MUST let me know if you are concerned you have symptoms/are self isolating prior to a shoot. I will not be charging a cancellation fee in these instances and will aim to reschedule at no cost if this is possible.

I would be very grateful if you do have a shoot with me and then go on to develop symptoms up to 14 days later that you get in contact. This means I can take my own judgements on the level of self isolation from my own family and also the chance to notify any vulnerable clients I may be working with.

Where possible, I will aim to work outdoors, from a distance on a long lens. If working indoors, if rules allow me to do so, then I may request to work in a ventilated room.

I will not be offering Newborn sessions for the upcoming weeks. Newborns are often unsettled being photographed outside, and shooting newborns often means close contact in the way I choose to shoot. I personally have chosen not to carry out these sessions.

I am currently not offering wedding photography which includes the ceremony/groups of people. I will however do a couples photoshoot on the day if you wish. Watch this space as this may change in the upcoming weeks.

I look forward to working with you!
