COVID-Safe Plan

Last updated 21.10.20

I’m protecting my clients and our community by following a COVID-Safe plan in Melbourne & Victoria. I will be following current safe hygiene procedures and following current risk reduction plans. As a permitted worker as of 19.10.2020 by the Victorian Government, I am allowed to work in Metropolitan Melbourne and I will be carrying my permit as well as a COVID-Safe plan with me at all times.

  • All meetings with clients will be held over the phone or teleconference such as Skype/Zoom
  • Photographer to stay at least 1.5m apart from clients during photoshoots
  1. Wear a face covering
  1. Practise good hygiene 
  • Carry hand sanitiser and having it made available to clients on photo shoots

  • Clients are not to handle any of the photographer’s equipment – including loading in/out.
  • Photographer will no longer be able to assist in taking photos using another person’s camera or phone.
  1. Keep records and act quickly if workers become unwell
  • Keep all records of photographer job movements/client details

  • In the event that I become unwell up to 14 days after the event, I will contact the clients and suppliers and inform them that I am going for testing and awaiting results. I will advise them of results
