Keeping you safe during a Branded Lifestyle Portrait session
There are a number of things we can do to limit Covid-19 (coronavirus) exposure during a photo session and in our business arrangement. Let’s take a look at the key issues:
My best portrait lenses require that I keep a distance from the subject, which helps keep the background out of focus. The photographer and subject will remain at least 6 feet from each other.
The photographer will wear two masks as recommended by the CDC to help prevent the spread of the virus. You may go mask-less outside at your discretion. You may also want some good photos of you with a mask for your branding needs.
Outside! While shooting outdoors always poses lighting challenges, it can also be the most rewarding. The natural ventilation, sunlight, distance, and masking will keep you and the photographer safe.
Screening and information
I will pre-screen all appointments and offer rescheduling to anyone with health concerns. I keep records of everyone I work with, in case contact tracing should be necessary.
Retainer and scheduling easement
I have a very relaxed retainer policy during the pandemic, which allows either the photographer or the client to reschedule without penalty because of health concerns. We are in this together.
Virtual transactions and delivery
Electronic hands-off scheduling, payment, agreement, and delivery transactions are preferred.
