Employees & Guidelines for Studio Photographers

Studio owners provided training and educational materials available through the WHO website on proper sanitation, hand washing, cough and sneeze etiquette, use of PPE, and other protective methods. The Studio and office rooms or other areas of the studio should be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before and after each customer visit.

Social distancing / No touch practise for most of the photography photo sessions

Photographers should maintain social distancing, using no-touch posing methods when at all possible (the photographer should wear the mask and gloves or sanitize the hands prior to newborn photography sessions). Until further notice is received from the WHO, the maximum gathering for a photoshoot in studio of 10 persons  should be observed.

All photo sessions should be conducted By appointment only

We do work by appointment only, allowing sufficient time to sanitize photographic equipment and common areas after each client session. Only one photoshoot should be allowed in the studio at any given time.

Temperature checks and screening questions

Temperature checks should be conducted for each photographic client (including each member of the family present) prior to each session. The photoshoot should be rescheduled if the temperature one of the participants exceeding 100.4 degrees F.

The following Screening questions will be forwarded to you prior to the photoshoot and must be answered by the customer prior to the photoshoot :

  • How are you feeling today?
  • Have you had a cough or any flu-like or COVID symptoms in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms with the last 14 days?
  • Do you leave with anyone who is sick or quarantined?
  • Please reschedule the photoshoot if the answer is “Yes” to any above mentioned questions.

Standard sanitation protocols prior to each client should include but not be limited to:

    • KILLS GERMS – UV-C light helps kill airborne viruses such as influenza, staph, rhinovirus, and works with Titanium Dioxide to reduce volatile organic compounds
