Over the past few weeks businesses of all kinds have suffered from the Covid-19 lockdown, either directly or indirectly. As a photographer I saw my work evaporate overnight because of concerns about safety and social distancing. It now looks as though there’s light at the end of the tunnel and people are beginning to think about getting their message out to potential customers. I’m able to be flexible in my approach and can offer various solutions for those needing photos safely and quickly: my business portraits and actor headshots are generally shot in a studio but there’s no reason why they can’t be relocated to a suitable indoor or outdoor location. I can also provide product shots either in my home studio or on location.
I recently completed a shoot during lockdown for an actor requiring headshots: we met in the centre of Derby and used several locations within a few minutes’ walk from the Marketplace to produce a range of appealing portraits. We were able to work safely, keeping an appropriate distance between us at all times.
As the restrictions on business are gradually relaxed it’s time to think about how we can rebuild our working practices in view of the continuing threat from Covid-19. I’m able to offer solutions for most photographic needs, with health and safety a priority.
Below is another example of a professional business portrait produced under the current restrictions due to Covid-19. We met in Derby City Centre and found a quiet corner where we could capture some relaxed shots for Terri’s profile.
