StillVision Photography Covid Secure

2020/2021 have been and continue to be exceptional years, but I am now open as normal.  I take twice weekly lateral flow tests, follow all government recommendations and the covid-safe best practice below.  If you have any questions or concerns, or wish to discuss the health and safety of a session with me in more detail, please get in touch.

Track and Trace

My customers see me by appointment only. This means I am aware who I have seen and when. I take personal details as part of my normal booking process, so there is no need to ‘check in’ using the government app if seeing me in the studio.

Studio Cleaning Policy 

My studio (including toilet facility) is cleaned at the start of every day, or before and after every appointment. All touchable surfaces are cleaned.  My studio is aired thoroughly in order to minimise droplets in the air.

Diary Management 

I see no more than two appointments a day, usually one in the morning and one in the afternoon. In the studio, I allow time to clean and minimise contact between one customer arriving and another leaving.

Customer Sickness Policy 

If you or anyone in your party feels unwell, has had contact with an individual displaying symptoms of Covid-19, somebody awaiting a Covid-19 test result, or someone who has tested positive for Covid-19, please do not attend your session. Please be honest and open. Studio sessions can always be re-arranged at short notice.

Self-Monitoring

If I show symptoms associated with Covid-19, find out I have been in touch with an individual displaying symptoms of Covid-19, somebody awaiting a Covid-19 test result, or someone who has tested positive for Covid-19, I will be in touch as soon as possible to re-arrange your appointment.  I also take twice weekly lateral flow tests.

Hand Washing

I wash my hands thoroughly for a minimum period of 20 seconds prior to every client appointment. I encourage my customers to do the same on arrival to the studio. Hand sanitising hand gel is also available.

Social Distancing

1-2m social distance is possible to maintain during all photography sessions.  Please keep your distance where you can.

Masks

Masks are not realistic for my subjects to wear for obvious reasons.  I am happy to wear a mask if requested, but photography is very much about a connection between photographer and subject.  Masks make this difficult.

On Location

When shooting on location I will adhere to all necessary rules applicable.
