Working in accordance to government guidelines managing the risk of Covid-19.

Stay Alert • Control The Virus • Save Lives

Date Issued 25/04/20
Updated 30/06/20

The purpose of these guidelines is to enable all those responsible take reasonable and practical steps to safeguard the health and safety of everyone attending a shoot in relation to COVID and to meet their obligations to do so under the Health and Safety at Work Act, and Government guidelines & regulations on COVID, including The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 (expiring 26 Sept 2020).

Matthew Rycraft Photography & Rycraft Studios is working to reduce the risk of transmission to the lowest reasonably practicable level, by taking the following preventative measures.

  • If have any symptoms of Covid-19 you need to let us know then we will reschedule your appointment & shoot. Access to the studio will also not be allowed.
  • Outdoor Shoots are conducted in a remote location away from others.
  • Only 1 single family will be photographed at once within the studio.
  • Only 1 family is allowed in the studio at any one time.
  • Consultations are by appointment only.
  • I will endeavour to maintain at least a 2 meter distance where possible & 1 meter when space is limited but a mask will be warn.
  • I will not come in contact with you or approach for posing.
  • If we see people approaching on outdoor shoots I will move us to another remote location.
  • Shoots & clients are separated by 2 hours to avoid overlap, contact and to make the necessary studio cleaning & sterilising requirements.
  • Clients will be met at a specific location away from others.
  • Clients are to wait outside the studio until advised to enter.
  • Masks & Gloves will be provided when required.
  • Sanitizer will be supplied at our sanitising station.
  • Children must be supervised by parents at all times.
  • Your viewing gallery will be provided online & where clients wish an in studio viewing these can be conducted with 2 Meter Distancing.
  • Any purchases & payments will be made available online.
  • It’s recommended you sanitise & wash your hands before leaving and after the shoot and studio visit.
  • Families are recommended to travel together in one car.
  • To help minimise travel, I recommend traveling to just the shoot and back home.

Most of all I want your special shoot to be magical.  The directions above help not only myself but help the safety of my clients along with others.

I look forward to seeing you on your shoot and sharing the time with you.
