Let's Stay Safe
Our lives may have been turned upside down but together we can handle anything
THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT TO ME THAN THE SAFETY OF YOUR FAMILY. THIS COVID-SAFE PLAN WILL BE UPDATED REGULARLY AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH CURRENT RESTRICTIONS AND PUBLIC HEALTH ADVICE CHANGES. PLEASE CHECK BACK HERE FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION & STAY UP TO DATE WITH RESTRICTIONS AND PUBLIC HEALTH ADVICE AT WWW.CORONAVIRUS.VIC.GOV.AU/CORONAVIRUS-COVID-19-VICTORIA
This plan applies to both outdoor photography as well as in-home photography and is subject to relevant gathering limits.
The photographer providing the service must be a registered business with an ABN and be undertaking a paid service.
Both the photographer AND all clients aged 16+ must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless a valid medical exemption applies.
All participants aged 16+ are required to check in via the photographers QR code and provide evidence of their vaccination status
1. Ensure physical distancing
Both the client and the photographer must remain a minimum of 1.5 m from each other at all times. To minimise the build-up of people, photography locations will be selected based on them being a safe distance away from other members of the public
All transactional activity will be undertaken online where practical (invoicing / contract signing etc)
2. Wear a face covering
A face mask will be worn by the photographer at all times throughout the photography session. Unless a lawful exception applies, all people over the age of 12 will wear a face covering and only remove that face covering for the duration of the photograph. This is in accordance with the Stay at Home Directives (Restricted Areas) Subclause 7 (s) that state a face covering can be removed "to the extent that it is not reasonably practicable to receive that service wearing a face covering.") Cloth masks will be washed each day after use and disposable masks will be discarded. However, if during the day the mask is visibly dirty or wet, the mask will be replaced immediately.
3. Practise good hygiene
Vigilant hand and cough hygiene will be maintained at all times by both the client and the photographer. Camera equipment will be thoroughly cleaned between sessions
Props or blankets will no longer be supplied by the photographer until further notice.
4. Keep records and act quickly if anybody becomes unwell
Contact details for all persons being photographed will be collected prior to the session - including proof of vaccination. Clients will be required to check in via a registered QR code at the start of each session. The importance of not attending / rescheduling if unwell will be reinforced and is applicable to both the client and the photographer. Any exposure to a person with coronavirus (COVID-19) will result in the closure of this business until it is declared safe to re-open by the relevant authorities. In the event that the client comes into contact with a person with coronavirus (COVID-19), they shall notify the photographer immediately and will not schedule a photography session until they have received a negative test result.
5. Avoid interactions in enclosed spaces
Airflow will be enhanced by opening windows and doors where possible during an in-home session. Where practical, photos will be taken in open spaces such as the front/backyard.
6. Workforce bubbles
The photographer is a sole trader and does not interact with a workforce.
