      The photographer will follow all COVID guidelines as directed by the current government restrictions and will not work during periods of lockdowns. If restrictions lift the photographer will ensure appropriate permits are in place.

      The photographer providing the service must be a registered business with an ABN.

      1. Ensure physical distancing

      Both the client and the photographer must ensure appropriate social distance (1.5m) of each-other. The photographer will shoot using longer lenses where closer shots are required.

      Only members of the same household can be photographed together unless restrictions permit otherwise.

      Photography will only take place a safe distance from other members of the public.

      All other business activity apart from the actual photo shoot will be conducted remotely.

      2. Practise good hygiene

      Vigilant hand and cough hygiene will be maintained at all times by both the client and the photographer. The photographer will sanitise and wash hands prior to any client contact.

      Camera equipment will be thoroughly cleaned between sessions with alcohol wipes.

      The Photographer will wear a mask at all times and expects the clients to wear a mask when not being photographed.

      4. Keep records and act quickly if anybody becomes unwell

      Contact details for all persons being photographed will be collected prior to the session.

      All parties including the photographer commit to rescheduling if unwell.

      In the event that the photographer comes into contact with a person with coronavirus (COVID-19), WorkSafe Victoria will be notified immediately on 13 23 60 and all contact details will be provided.

      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. Vaccination

      The Photographer has had one dose of a vaccination and will be fully vaccinated in early November.
