COVID Safe Plan

As part of the requirements since the COVID-19 pandemic, all businesses are required to have a COVID Safe Plan to keep us all safe. I will follow the guidelines issued by the Victorian Department of Health  (DH) and update my COVID Safe Plan to reflect any changes to those guidelines. If you have any questions about my plan, please get in touch.

I am fully vaccinated and am of course happy to confirm that via the Service Victoria app.

Ensure Physical Distancing

1. All meetings with clients will be held via phone or videoconference, wherever possible.

2. I will stay at least 1.5m away from the client(s) during the photoshoot.

3. Wedding photography will be limited as per the current DH guidelines.

5. Outdoor photography locations will be selected to maximise physical distancing from other people.

6. All transactions (contracts and invoicing) will be done electronically. Delivery of images will also be done electronically unless specific physical items (such as prints and/or albums) are ordered.

Wear a Face Covering

1. I will carry, and wear when required or appropriate, a cleaned cloth mask or a single use N95 or surgical mask for each session and change any mask that becomes dirty during the session. 

Practise Good Hygiene

1. Vigilant hand and cough hygiene will be maintained at all times by both the client and myself.

2. I will carry hand sanitiser at all times.

3. Clients are not permitted to touch any of my camera equipment.

Keep Good Records and Act Quickly if Become Unwell

1. The contact details of people being photographed during a session will be collected, ideally prior to the session.

2. If either I or the client(s) becomes unwell, we will get in contact to reschedule the session. In the event of a wedding, if I am unwell and unable to photograph on the day, I will seek to find a similarly skilled photographer to take my place. The subsequent editing and delivery of images will still rest with me unless otherwise advised.

3. If I come into contact with someone with COVID-19, I will follow the DH and  WorkSafe guidelines for reporting. Likewise, if any clients from a photography session come into contact with a person with COVID 19 within 14 days of a photography shoot, they must inform me. 

Avoid Interactions in Close Spaces

1. For any sessions indoors, physical distancing will be maintained wherever possible and ventilation will be increased, wherever possible, by opening doors and/or windows.

2. Photography sessions will be conducted outdoors, wherever possible, and/or physical distancing will be maintained wherever possible when indoors. 

Create Workforce Bubbles

1. As a sole operator, I will be working alone.
