Covid-19/COVIDSAFE Guidelines

LOCATION SHOOTS – PLEASE READ

The booking is for an outdoor shoot and is obviously weather dependant. If there is a chance of adverse weather, we may have to postpone for a future date. Any changes will be communicated with you ASAP, but with the Great British weather being unpredictable this may not always be possible. So please provide a contact number where you can be reached on the day of the shoot.

If for some reason the venue or location becomes unavailable due to circumstances out of my control, I will try to contact you as soon as reasonably possible. So, again, it is important I have a contact number where I can reach you on the day of the shoot.

Preferred payments are contactless. This can either be via card on the day of the shoot, or bank transfer before the day. If you wish to pay by bank transfer, please let me know and I will send an invoice with the details on before the shoot, otherwise it will be assumed that contactless card payment on the day is acceptable. Cash is fine also.

Bookings are for 45 minutes, and more than one will be scheduled on a particular day. Therefore please ensure you arrive promptly for your agreed time slot. If you are running late, please let me know. However there will be no guarantee that I will be able to give you a full 45 minutes should this situation arise. Delivery of images will be via digital download to minimise contact. A link will be sent once images have been edited, where you can download. Please ensure you save them to a device, as this link will only be available for a limited time.

If you do not wish to have previews added to Facebook or Instagram, please let me know in advance of the shoot.

Due to the current heath risk, any booking will be subject to the agreement of the following important conditions:

SCHOOL PHOTOS – PLEASE READ

Only 1 parent/guardian to accompany child/children attending shoot.

All attending must be from within same household. In any case the maximum amount of people in the studio at any one time from the same household bubble is 5 plus photographer. 

As defined in a risk assessment, the minimum age to take part in these sessions is 4.

Due to the amount of children attending and the very tight time frame, sessions are limited to 15/20 minutes including printing time. This enables me to clean the studio area after each client leaves. If you are running late for your session, please contact me as there is a high chance you may not be able to be seen.

When you arrive, please wait in the driveway until I come out to you. If it is raining or weather is otherwise bad, please wait in your vehicle if you have one and text me on 07788277070 so I know you have arrived. I would ask you do not ring the doorbell as the chances are I will be finishing with the previous client or preparing the studio for you. I will be able to see you waiting on the camera 🙂.

Please keep shoes on upon arrival, and sanitise your hands using the product provided. Please avoid touching surfaces wherever possible.

Face masks to be worn at all times when visiting studio, unless exempt or under recommended age. They may be removed when having photograph taken.

Please scan QR code on arrival with NHS COVID-19 app. If you do not have the app, the contact details of the lead member of those attending will be taken for track and trace.

Payments can be made by cash or card. 


Studio address is 7 Nene Meadows, Sutton Bridge, PE12 9TY. Please be respectful of neighbours when parking vehicles.
