Coronavirus Safe-Session Policies

Joshua tree silhouette for 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. For the time being these sessions will take place at a non-studio location. This could be outside near the studio. It could be in your garage – yes, it’s strange but will work beautifully as a makeshift studio when I set up my lights and backdrop. We could photograph your headshots at your office in a low-traffic area or somewhere to be determined. 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. Either way I will call you shortly to discuss location.

For safety and liability purposes, I won’t be opening up my studio until June 2, 2020. This date may change. 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. For new clients looking for a unique look, we can photograph outdoors near my studio.

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

  • Equipment will be wiped down with sanitizing solution upon set up prior to client’s arrival, and in between clients.
  • 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 non-studio session, you may click Book Now and I will call you shortly to discuss location. For larger groups, please book here. Feel free to call me with any questions.

I wish good health to you and your family.
