Updated 27th November 2020
In mid March sadly all 2020 bookings had to be put on hold, and when the restrictions lifted it was wonderful to be able to get back out with the camera. However, I am sorry to say that everything is on hold again, and with such significant impact of the virus I feel it is unlikely that I'll be able to offer any kind of normal service before Spring 2021. I'm sorry that this will include all of my usual Christmas fundraising sessions.
As a result I'm currently only planning to offer doorstep mini shoots from 2nd to 20th December and 2nd January to 31st March - please check back here in case anything changes in the meantime. During December I'm happy to capture you with your outdoor Christmas decorations, and hope to bring a little joy to the darkness.
In anticipation of things looking better in the Spring I will continue to take new bookings for small outdoor sessions from the start of April, with the caveat that any rescheduling required will also come with the option of a full refund should you no longer require the booking. Due to current risks and recommendations I will continue to keep these bookings for family or small group shoots in outdoor locations, with a maximum of 5 participants at any one time - again please check back here in case anything changes.
In order for everyone to remain safe and healthy, for all shoots during the pandemic I will use long focal length lenses which require me to remain several metres distant, thus ensuring appropriate social distancing at all times. For the small group shoots and due to the space required, I would suggest that parks, woods and nature reserves would be ideal, although a large garden could be suitable if there is enough space for everyone to move around whilst remaining at a safe distance.
I realise that very young children and pets may struggle to conform to the social distancing requirements, but ask that you work with me in helping to maintain that safe distance at all times.
I regret that I'm still not planning to offer indoor shoots in the near future in the interests of the safety of both my clients and my own family; this decision will remain under review based on the ongoing need for social distancing, the risk level, and the official recommendations in place.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
My doorstep photos charity fundraiser has now come to a close, having raised a staggering £1669.90 for charity. Due to their popularity I am extending my offer of Doorstep Mini-Shoots throughout the winter for anyone that missed out. For details of this and future offers please follow my facebook page.
