Covid Safe Plan

Read Emily Black Photography's Covid Safe Plan

As a requirement for all Victorian businesses operating during the Covid 19 Pandemic, under Stay Safe Directives, Emily Black Photography has a current Covid Safe Plan for Operating.

Covid-19 Restrictions and what they mean for your session.

[Updated March 5th 2021]

Sessions are BACK! 

It's wonderful to safely return to sessions, while following all current guidelines. 

Complete with my Covid Safe Plan and permits where required, I am looking forward to photographing you and your family's milestones.

As we move through this time, the main focus, as always is on the safety of you, your family and the greater public health, including my own. 

It's necessary to follow the directives and while sessions may not look like you'd expected or hoped initially, they will be beautiful and heartfelt.

Through my role with the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) the profession has gained clarification surrounding the mandatory face covering rules, ensuring they can be removed while you are actively being photographed by a professional.

Indoor sessions are now also safely able to be undertaken, with people per square meter guidelines being followed.

Most Importantly I have all the relevant permits, Covid Safe Plan and documentation for any contact tracing should it be required.

I will be in communication with all clients to ensure the safest practices are being followed, and will always err on the side of caution in any situation.

While 2020 was rather discombobulating the downtime allowed space for growth and re-thinking business, family, and the value we hold in the art of image capture. 

I hung prints at the local cafe, had my own little #exhibitioninthewindow for the folks that walk by my home, created new products of my nature prints and changed up the whole mentoring thing, I was even a guest on a few podcasts.

While business may look a little different right now, there are a bunch of ways you can still connect.

  • Gift vouchers are still available, for sessions, or products.
  • Orders for enlargements and other products can still be placed. (perfect time to add a few prints for your walls, make them prettier while we're confined amongst them.)

Something I'm very excited about is my upcoming exhibition and new work I am still creating. While the exhibition itself was postponed indefinitely, that doesn't mean you can't have some of my art on your walls.

  • Landscape and Nature prints and postcard packs are available for purchase with a few new products being released soon, via the 'SHOP' section, or you can visit Mister Hoffman Cafe in Niddrie for an in person look at the prints hanging.
  • New linen tea towel collections are also available, perfect for gifting to friends and family.
  • My new Mentoring program for photographers, creatives, and business owners is available, online, through weekly or bi-weekly appointments, have a look at the 'mentoring' section.

and also,

  • There's never a bad time to ask me a question, feel free to drop me a line via the 'contact' tab. Maybe now more than ever we could all do with a chat, even as we slowly re-emerge.
  • Head to my Instagram feed; my 'stories' section is a great way to connect as we all navigate this time (a few coffee's and a bit of wine may appear, even my running adventures)... make a comment, double tap for a 'like'; those kind've things can boost a business lady boss's day, and remind her she's doing ok.

I have built loads of wonderful connections over the years with clients, many of us have become very close, and it's an honour to share in some of life's most incredible moments, it feels now more than ever we could all do with a hug, (gosh I wish we could hug) your support means the world to me.

Please take care of you and your family, and I look forward to giving HUGS out like medicine when we can all cuddle again, for now though a socially distant elbow 'bump' will have to do.
