COVID - 19 POLICY

In accordance with current government guidelines, we have taken all the necessary precautions to ensure we can shoot safely. Please see our policies for studio and location shoots below.

 

Studio

  • We ask that you sanitize your hands when you arrive. Hand sanitising stations are situated in the main entrance hall and at the entrance to the studio. 

  • Face masks are to be worn at all times and can only be removed once safely on set.

  • We will wear a face mask throughout the shoot.

  • We ask that when using the toilet facilities or when moving through the building you keep your face mask on.

  • In order to reduce the risk of contact with anyone else, we ask that you remain in the studio apart from using the toilet facilities or when requiring outside access.

  • The studio is marked up with red tape at 1-metre and 2-metre distances. We asked that you respect these distances at all times during your shoot.

  • We have ensured that the set is constantly ventilated.

  • The entrance hall, studio and toilet facilities will be thoroughly cleaned both before and after your shoot.

  • All props, including chairs, will be cleaned both before and after your shoot.

  • Personal hand towels are provided and will be hot washed both before and after your shoot.

  • Personal handwash is provided in the toilets, clearly marked ‘CJC’.

  • Personal tea and coffee utensils, including mugs and glasses, are provided and washed both before and after your shoot.

  • We ask that if you develop any symptoms in the days prior to your shoot, you inform us immediately and we will reschedule for when you’re well again. 

  • In order to allow enough time for cleaning, we leave a 90-minute window between shoots and will never schedule more than two a day.

 

Location

  • Location shoots will only take place in open, non-congested areas that allow for social distancing.

  • Site-specific photoshoots are subject to the distancing policies applied by the venue.

  • To reduce the risk of contact, we ask that there are no more than three people on set at all times. This includes the CJC photographer, CJC assistant / movement director, and the artist.

  • Group and live event photography are subject to the current government guidelines at that time. They will be agreed prior to the engagement.

  • Should anyone involved in the shoot develop symptoms in the days prior to the session or event, we ask that you inform us immediately and we will re-schedule.

  • For venue and site-specific shoots, all members of the CJC team will wear face masks throughout and will hand sanitize at regular intervals.

  • Shoots will take place at 1-metre or 2-metre distances, in accordance with government guidelines at the time of your shoot.

 

We will constantly review these policies to ensure that we are creating a safe environment for everyone we work with.
