We have been constantly inspired by the commitment our industry has made to adaptive learning through these past months; and now as event professionals put that knowledge into action we are so excited to be back behind the lens again capturing safe intimate gatherings!
To celebrate all that we’ve learned together, we are sharing the insights and measures our team has taken towards safety, as well as examples of some of the small COVID conscious events we’ve had the pleasure to begin capturing.
What Health & Safety Looks Like for Our Photography Company
Perfecting Our Personal & Professional Policies: We’ve reviewed, revised, and developed new policies and procedures with the safety of our team, your project, and your guests at top of mind. Regular health screenings, monitoring techniques, and hygiene practices will be implemented daily in our home, offices, and of course onsite.
One Big Supportive Family: We’ve always been proud of our large talented team and their ability to take on multiple cross-country projects at a time. However now we will be using our numbers to create a supportive and safe scheduling system that ensures we always have multiple back ups. No one should ever feel pressured to work through a cold and our revised scheduling system will support both our photographers and your project.
Social Distancing & PPE: It’s generally easy for photographers to stay 2m away, in fact we usually operate best at over 6’ distance from your guests! However we will be prepared for all scenarios, supplying our team with masks and sanitizer happily respecting your guests safety bubble.
New Angles & Techniques: Our team specializes in finding the best angles to capture the unique moments of your event, and we will be adapting our creative eye to make sure that this continues with your social distancing guests. Whether it’s spaced out seating, or large groups standing a part, our team will be able to find unique opportunities to capture your safety conscious program.
Informed and Aware: We will continue to stay informed about the evolving guidelines, and an informed photographer can be a valuable resource for your event. Our team can assist you in the consultation phase to align on the current spacing regulations etc. We can also help position guests safely and make sure that your photos in the end reflect your commitment to safety.
Safe Events In Action
Regardless of the event you’re hosting, people want to be able to share photos they are proud of, and for individuals and businesses right now that means being able to share photos that say “I’m having fun, while being safe”. Here are some examples of events we’ve captured recently that show just that.
The ILEA Calgary Chapter found creative ways to celebrate with their members at their annual ILEA End of the Year event in June. Gift bags were picked up at OneWest Events providing guests with items to make guests feel connected while they viewed a live broadcast from FMAV from the comfort of their homes.
