The Government has now taken steps to allow more people to meet in locations such as church halls, fetes and markets, with more households being able to mingle in places as a result. Because of this, there are more opportunities to record unique moments where it might be worth considering the services of a professional photographer. Life isn't going to return to normal any time soon, but slowly we're beginning to see events land back in the diary.
I take the safety of everyone I work with exceptionally seriously. In my 'other life', I've spent the last four months helping to coordinate the national response to COVID-19, identifying which areas of the country need the most support, and helping manage the distribution of millions of items of PPE, and billions of pounds of funding. You don't wake up every day to start work reading excess death statistics, and still take the ongoing threat of COVID-19 lightly.
My first event since the pandemic takes place in Chiswick on 25th July for Fantom Events. Before agreeing take part, I asked to see their risk assessment and, having talked this through with the event organisers, was content it was in line with current guidance.
To give clients who wish to visit the Photo Studio on the 25th July maximum peace of mind, I have also carried out an additional risk assessment, which you can access here.
To read the full risk assessment from Fantom Events, you can visit their website here and download their statement, including the one from Paul Phipps-Williams Photography.
