Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak update

Updated: Jun 10

What are we doing at Stuart Bailey Photography?

Commercial, Advertising, and Lifestyle Photographer, London UK

My priority as a photography business is to be responsible and respectful to my client's health as well as my own.

Therefore I am taking these necessary steps to do my bit during the outbreak of the Coronavirus disease here in the UK.

1. Event Photography: Obviously, I will no longer be photographing events until the government has said that it is safe for mass gatherings again.

2. Meetings: Meetings with new or existing clients will be conducted over the phone or preferably by video call via Google Hangouts, Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp for the foreseeable future.

3. Travel: I am limiting my travels, especially into Central London and crowded places, and will not be taking public transport.

4. Disinfecting of Equipment: Before and after every shoot I am disinfecting all my equipment; bags, cameras, lenses, phone, car and keys. Anything that could be vulnerable.

5. Masks: If the job requires photographing or meeting people, I now wear a mask to help protect myself and others.

6. Safe Distance Markings and Signage: For headshots, I am marking on the ground the safe 2 metre (6ft) distance so that it's clear for my clients where is safe to stand.

I am also putting up signs on the meeting room doors etc to show that there is a photo shoot taking place to stop accidental entry.

Where possible, I am also implementing an in/out system for people flow.

7. Personal Measures: I am working from and staying at home as much as possible. I am also limiting going to public places unless absolutely necessary, like food shopping once a week during quiet periods.

8. Bookings: I am now taking bookings again, but keeping to strict physical distancing measures.

I can now take commercial photography bookings again according to the new rules on lockdown.

I can also do portrait and headshot photography adhering to the physical distancing rules to keep 2 metres (6ft) apart.

Even during normal times, the lenses I use for portrait photography means I usually keep 2 - 5 metres apart from my subject anyway.

9. Online Shop: I have set up an online shop where people can buy photo prints and wall art.

Digital Downloads are also available from as little as £1, so check them out!

If you can and would like to support my business during this time, you can find my online shop here:

Note: I will be updating this Covid-19 update blog as things continue.
