Snaptember 2020 with BIPOC

I’m bringing back Snaptember in 2020! This is the big announcement I mentioned in last week’s blog. This time with Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC). Snaptember is a personal project I embarked upon last year where I photographed headshots of someone new each day, at no cost, for the month of September, in an effort to give back to my community.

These are free, 30-minute headshot sessions. In exchange for posing for me, each person will receive at least one headshot to use with their resume, job application, on LinkedIn, their website and email signature.

The theme this year: BIPOC, especially someone unemployed who could really use this to find a job. BIPOC have been hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic, both from high rates of unemployment to increased risk of infection. Not to mention the historical and current effects of extermination, systemic racism, repression, erasure and police brutality in this country. This is my very small, personal, but intentional attempt at reparations.

If you’re not Black, Indigenous or a Person of Color, please share this with someone who is. There are 30 spots, one for each day in September, and I’d like to fill each of these before the month begins.

Snaptember 2019

In 2019, I decided to do this project during the last week of August. It was a haphazard effort: no theme, no big announcements, hardly anyone on the books before the month began. I was having to walk down the street to the Posner Center or to other Denver neighbors to see if I could get them in my studio. Some needed updated headshots, some were just helping me out. This year I’m working to put new headshots into the hands of those who need them.

Safe & Fun

As the current coronavirus and COVID-19 events evolve, I’m taking these and our health very seriously, working to protect my clients and myself using current CDC recommendations. Each person will need to read my Coronavirus Safe Session Policies and sign a model release before getting on the calendar.

I make this experience fun, by the way. It’s true. You can read some of my five star Google reviews here. Headshots don’t have to be a chore. Most people tell me they don’t like being photographed and leave saying they actually enjoyed our session. Be prepared to get silly, or at least laugh. I look forward to working together.

Coronavirus Safe-Session Policies

First off, I hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy and safe. I’m certainly doing my best and taking the current events of coronavirus and COVID-19 very seriously. I want to share these coronavirus safe-session policies I’m implementing to protect you, your team, myself and my team.

GreenEarth Photography will resume photographing your business headshots, actor headshots and portraits starting May 12, 2020. These sessions will take place in my temporary open-air studio located in the Cherry Creek neighborhood. We can also photograph your headshots at your office. You may book your 1-2 person session here: Book Now. For larger groups needing headshots at your office or other location you may book that session here.

For safety and liability purposes, I won’t be opening up my Curtis Park studio just yet. However, for those clients who send me their new hires where we match a consistent look with the rest of your team, we’re still going to achieve that. When shooting on location, I will provide the same setup that I do in my studio.

Going forward, these new coronavirus safe-session policies will apply to all sessions and will continue to evolve as the situation dictates.

  • Lysol will be sprayed in the air.
  • Photographer (and makeup artist when scheduled) will wear a mask at all times.
  • Client will wear a mask to session and immediately following session during our on-site review of images.
  • Photographer and client will keep at least 6 feet from each other at all times.
  • A no-touch policy will be in place which means no handshakes, no adjusting of subject’s hair, makeup or clothing. Photographer will direct subject to make adjustments and will provide a stand-up mirror.
  • Client shall not touch any piece of equipment at any time.
  • Photographer, makeup artist and subject will wash their hands or use hand sanitizer upon arrival to location/set and every hour. Photographer will provide hand sanitizer and will be the only one to touch the bottle.
  • 48 hour cancellation policy waived if illness occurs.
  • If either photographer or subject feels sick in any capacity prior to the session or day of, especially fever or cough, photo session will not take place under any circumstances and will be rescheduled.
  • If client or photographer feels unsafe at any time during the session, session will end and both client and photographer will determine how to proceed.

I am watching the situation closely and will update this blog as things change. To book a 1-2 person session in my temporary open-air studio in the Cherry Creek neighborhood, you may click Book Now. For larger groups, please book here. Feel free to call me with any questions.

I wish good health to you and your family.
