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. Here is a general summary for my safe professional practice:

  • Travel to jobs by car on my own.
  • Maintain social distancing 2m at all times.
  • No contact, shaking hands, etc.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and warm water.
  • Don’t allow clients to touch cameras, lights, computers, etc.
  • Shoot in work & public places – not private residences.
  • If symptoms develop (as per current guidelines) cease work and isolate.
  • Use Zoom or phone for meetings and tuition sessions.
  • Be aware of client’s H&S policy when on location.
  • Wear mask and gloves where possible.
  • Bear in mind that PPE is “last resort” and should not be seen as an alternative to distancing, washing and other above main precautions.
  • Communicate: Ensure all people involved in a shoot are aware of the above.
  • Report any Covid incidents to HSE via RIDDOR
  • Continue local community voluntary work where possible.
