Corononavirus / Covid-19 Safe Professional Photography Practice Policy:

Tony Cobley Photography is committed to working in a safe and responsible manner and will continue to review health and safety based on current government guidelines.

I received my first vaccination for Covid on 27th February 2021.

Here is a general summary for my safe professional practice on location as of 26/02/21:

  • Comply with all requirements of client’s workplace and h&s policy.
  • Maintain social distancing of the current guidelines, at time of writing this is “1m+” but aim for 2m.
  • No contact, shaking hands, etc.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and warm water.
  • Use hand santitiser where available and surface sanitiser spray.
  • Don’t allow clients to touch cameras, lights, computers, etc.
  • If symptoms (as per current guidelines) or temperature develop cease work immediately, isolate and follow government guidelines re testing etc.
  • Use Zoom or phone for meetings and tuition sessions where possible.
  • Wear mask and gloves where required indoors.
  • Bear in mind that PPE is “last resort” and should not be seen as an alternative to distancing, washing and other above main precautions.
  • Travel independently in car to client and others involved
  • Communicate: Ensure all other people involved in a shoot are aware of the above.
  • Report any Covid incidents to HSE via RIDDOR
