COVID-19 Safety Precautions, Client Self Evaluation and Assumption of Risk

Safety Precautions:

Expert Headshots have implemented the following preventative measures to keep our staff and clients safe during our photo sessions.

  • A reduction of the number of sessions each day in order to limit the flow in and out of the Studio Space. 

  • We recommend coming to your shoot alone unless:

    • You feel you need help from a friend that would be considered essential.

    • You are a parent accompanying a minor to the session. 

    • You are being photographed as part of a couple or group.

  • All surfaces within the studio are sanitised after each session and prior to entry of our new clients the following day.

  • Should we be shooting for a corporate client with a number of employees being photographed over the course of a day then we will stagger each person allowing for time in between to appropriately clean between sessions.

  • Whilst being photographed our clients will remove their mask and no other individual will get within a 6 ft radius of them without a face covering. 

  • There will be no physical contact by our staff to fix hair, clothing or makeup.


Pre-shoot self-evaluation:

  • I confirm that I haven’t displayed any COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days:

    • Fever or chills

    • Cough

    • Runny nose, nasal congestion or sneezing without other known cause

    • Sore throat

    • Difficulty breathing or swallowing

    • Unexplained fatigue or malaise

    • Headaches

    • Decrease (or loss) of sense of taste or smell

  • I confirm that I, as well as all household members, have not knowingly been exposed to anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 14 days.

  • I confirm that I, as well as all household members, have not traveled internationally within the past 14 days.
