In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK Government placed the country in lockdown on 23rd March 2020 in an attempt to flatten the transmission of the virus. As a result, many non-essential businesses have temporarily closed their doors to comply with social distancing rules.
As a photographer, much of what I do involves coming into contact with people. The safety of my customers and their families is my primary concern and I can confirm that my business will be on hold during this time.
At the moment, there is no set date for when restrictions will be lifted. Until then, I will be contacting customers that have a booking within the upcoming two weeks to discuss options. However, any in-person meetings or commissions will be postponed until the Government’s advice changes.
I am self-isolating from home but am still available to answer any questions you might have or to discuss new projects once lockdown has ended. As ever, you can reach me at [email protected].
Wherever you are, stay safe and take care of your loved ones!
