Covid safe plan

Covid Safe Plan

Ensure Physical Distancing
Gold and Grit Photography (photographer and any assistants) will always keep a minimum of 1.5m distance (where possible) between us and any clients. 

Client meetings will mainly be done via phone or Zoom. In person meetings will be conducted with a 1.5m distancing. 

Face Masks
Gold and Grit follows current regulations in terms of the wearing of face coverings. During times when face masks are required (indoors and/or outdoors), Gold and Grit will be sporting a new mask for each shoot. 

During times when face masks are not required (indoors and/or outdoors) and in situations where it is not possible for the photographer to socially distance, we will use fresh face masks.

Practise Good Hygiene
Gold and Grit will always carry hand sanitiser to every shoot, and will make it available to clients. 

Any and all equipment used will be cleaned between every shoot.

We ask that clients no longer handle any of the photographer’s equipment, such as loading in and out of cars, or carrying items. 

In the same way the photographer and/or assistant will no longer handle any of the client’s personal items. This means for example that we no longer will offer to help take photos with client’s phones or correct dresses etc. 

If the photographer is feeling unwell she will no longer attend any shoots, but will self isolate until test results are back and I have recovered. Either another photographer will be assigned (for sessions that cannot be moved) or the sessions will be postponed to a new date. 

If I am confirmed to have COVID-19 I will self isolate for a minimum of 14 days. 

Record keeping
Records of all our clients, shoots, movements and contact details will be kept. This includes records of other suppliers if relevant. 

In the event that I become unwell within 14 days of a session, I will get in touch with the clients and any suppliers to inform them of the situation. I will keep them updated on the results. 

Are you booked in but feeling under the weather? 
If you or your family member/partner are feeling unwell and are showing any flu-like symptoms, please get in touch as soon as possible. Any non-wedding photography sessions will be postponed without any additional charges. 

Should I be unable to capture your session or wedding due to the virus or self isolating the following will happen: 

a. If it is a wedding I will organise for another amazing photographer to take my place on the day. All post production would be done by me and the end product would be just what you are expecting. 

b. If it is a photography session I will organise postponement of your session to a new date.
