Covid19 FAQ - Peter Arciero Photography

We are open for business.

 

Safe operation protocols following the Covid-19 Virus

As professional photographers working in our community it is essential for us to help and minimise the spread of any infection. Even though we have always operated a clean studio working policy we have introduced some new working protocols to meet government guidelines as well as common sense initiatives to protect us & you.

Like all small business we have been hit by this pandemic lockdown and are eager to get back to work, but we can only do that safely with your cooperation, which includes temperature testing on arrival, a no touch protocol and sanitization on arrival.

Personal Protection Equipment

Our key PPE protection is through sanitization gel on arrival, for both you and us. We would prefer to work without PPE, like masks and gloves, most of the time, but at your request or for specific reasons or government guidelines, we will of course do so.

Employees

All our studio team will follow our studio protocols on sanitisation, cleaning and self-distancing. Each day they will have their temperature taken, including every time they enter the building and in front of clients they are involved with.

Until further notice there will be designated washroom facilities for clients and Employees. Sanitisation, Hand Washing, Sneeze Etiquette and health monitoring will all follow our studio protocol.

Social Distancing

We have rearranged our diary to ensure no crossover and are working to a strict “By Appointment Only” rule as well as ensuring our contact is minimised with the social distancing. As we say “2 meters don’t mean we don’t love you” in fact by respecting the 2-meter guideline as well as our no touch policy, the session will follow and still feel like a great experience.

We will follow guidelines on grouping and numbers at all time and adjust to the numbers in a session allowed. When shooting on location we will only be photographing one family at a time, with an extended time slot to allow for appropriate client & studio employee/s sanitisation protocol.

3 little questions

On arrival we will ask 3 simple questions:

1. How is everyone feeling?

2. Has anyone had a cough or any flu-like or Covid symptoms in the last 14 days.

3. Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms within the last 14 days, including a visit to hospital?

Sanitation Protocol

Prior to all sessions our sanitisation and cleaning protocol as a minimum include: Hand Gel on Arrival Designated secure coat and baggage area. Washing hands regularly before and after any session Cleaning of all client areas and furniture, including client toilet facilities, door handles & counter tops. Post Session cleaning of studio props that clients might come in contact with.
