Photo shoot statement regarding COVID 19 and safety

Photo shoot statement:

Hello all! We are all living in the middle of a global pandemic and these are scary times.

I would like to get back to shooting soon ish but of course am closely listening to government guidelines as well as using common sense.

From mid August I will be taking 2-3 hour bookings with one photographer only outdoors. We will maintain more than a 2 metre distance at all times. Where we meet must be fairly secluded as we don’t want to have too many visitors during our shoot. I have some locations in Huddersfield/Brighouse that could work nicely as a woodland type of background but of course I am happy to travel also. My rates are slightly discounted in these times to help everyone get back on their feet so please just message me for more information. 

Both of us and our households must be symptom free for 2 weeks and not have travelled anywhere abroad within the past month. 

From September I am considering doing 1-2-1 studio shoots. The studio must be large and preferably with the potential to either open windows or have a door open to let air ventilate. I have studios in mind in West Yorkshire that fit the bill nicely. We will arrange our arrival time so that we will not enter the studio at the same time. The studio will be cleaned before our arrival but I will also be bringing cleaning products and hand sanitiser. We will maintain more than 2 metre distance at all times. You are more than welcome to try and connect your camera to a laptop so that I am able to see the back of the camera images however if this is not possible we will take multiple attempts at the same photo. Again, my rates are slightly discounted in these times to help everyone get back on their feet. Both of us and our households must be symptom free for 2 weeks and not have travelled anywhere abroad within the past month including the studio owner as well. I will not shoot for more than 2 hours to begin with just to keep exposure level to a minimum. Again I am happy to travel as long as the studio and changing space can be shown to me prior to the shoot. 

I want to get back into creating as quickly as possible and hope you understand the measures I have put in place are to keep everyone safe. Please message me with any enquiries you may have or any questions about the above.
