Our COVID-19 Safety Plan

As of September 2021 we are continuing to work through current lockdown conditions with utmost care, safety and diligence. Tanya Zouev Photography take the current COVID-19 situation very seriously and have implemented the following action plan to ensure the safety of all in-person interactions in our photography studio or on location.

Attendees At Shoots.

The number of personnel attending a shoot will be kept to a minimum number and all must present a negative COVID-19 test result at least one day prior to the shoot. Masks must be worn at all times on set. Both of these requirements are standard industry practice at the present and include photographer, assistants, stylists, clients and any other individual attending the shoot in person.

Where possible we ask client stakeholders to attend remotely by using one of the many video call apps available (Teams, Zoom, Google Meet) and we will share our screen with you for either the entire shoot or for portions of the day.

This way you will be able view the shoot as it takes place in real time and offer feedback and/or sign off images as they are completed. We are very familiar with this way of shooting and have been doing so since the start of the pandemic for both local and overseas clients with great success and much positive feedback.

Vaccination Status.

Tanya Zouev is fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and can provide a vaccination certificate upon request.

QR Code Check In.

We are a registered COVID safe business with Service NSW and QR code check in is required upon entry to the studio.

Delivery of Product Requiring Photography.

Where clients aren’t attending the shoot in person, all product can be shipped directly to Tanya Zouev Photography. Please ensure that all product arrives at the studio at least two business days prior to the shoot date.

Wellbeing of Attendees

We ask that all shoot attendees only attend if they are feeling well and do not have any respiratory or COVID-19 symptoms and have not been in contact with anyone experiencing such symptoms. We also discourage people who are from an area of high COVID-19 transmission or who are in a COVID-19 high risk health category from attending in person.

Should we notice an attendee with these symptoms, we reserve the right to ask you to not attend any longer and encourage them to see their GP or attend a local COVID clinic.

Any client stakeholder experiencing symptoms that must still participate in a shoot will be able to dial in via video conference for portions of the day from an isolated environment, such as their home if it is arranged prior to the shoot.

Social Distancing

We ask that clients limit their attending representatives to essential stakeholders only and to comply with a limit of one attendee per 4 square metres of studio or location space. Should you require multiple stakeholders to attend, please discuss this with us prior to make suitable arrangements such as staggered attendance or other such mitigation strategies.

Where reasonably practical, we ask that everyone maintain 1.5 metres physical distancing at all times (including at meal breaks). Should we notice this not being observed, we reserve the right to pause the shoot and remind those present of this important safety measure to ensure the protection of everyone.

Hygiene and Cleaning

Our studio is professionally cleaned and disinfected between each shoot.

We ask that all attendees sanitise and wash their hands upon arrival using the products provided and strongly encourage everyone to wear masks for the duration of the shoot. Masks will be provided to anyone who doesn’t have one with them.

Records of Contact Details

We ask that our clients’ primary point of contact with us obtain the contact details of all of their stakeholders to allow for quick communication between both parties should an attendee be notified that they may have been unknowingly infectious during a shoot.

Should any of our staff or suppliers inform us of a possible infection, we will contact all relevant clients to alert them immediately so that they can take the appropriate measures as quickly as possible.

Thank you and stay safe.
