How to Safely Organize a Photo Shoot in Phoenix During COVID

Recent news reports suggest that COVID-19 will continue to be at least a lingering concern for people for the next few years. Many businesses are changing their work approaches to accommodate the new realities we face to help stop the spread of a global pandemic. Unfortunately, photographers in Phoenix have been one of the hardest-hit sectors of the business sector. However, just because there are obstacles doesn’t mean that you have to shut your doors. Instead, focus on changing a few critical strategies so you can execute a photoshoot in Phoenix during COVID without spreading sickness.

Change Your Niche

If you’re a photographer that has previously focused on working with large groups but have become uncomfortable working in these settings, now may be the perfect time to transition. Instead of focusing on large events like weddings or birthdays, consider using your skills to photograph people, animals, or the natural world from a socially distanced perspective.

Be Vocal and Proactive

Setting clear guidelines and boundaries for your photoshoots can help you and your subjects safe from potential infection. Many businesses are reworking their initial paperwork, so their expectations are clear. Avoid directly touching people with handshakes or physical adjustments during a photoshoot. You can also require that while social distancing is difficult or photoshoots are indoors, your clients wear masks while not actively taking photos.

Require Vaccinations or Proof of Testing

One of the most critical steps that photographers can take to protect their health is to require that their clients are vaccinated or have a recent negative COVID test. Additionally, the spread of the Delta variant has many people concerned about the spread of illness, even among vaccinated individuals. One approach is to leverage mobile testing. Drip Hydration offers this service so that your clients can be tested just before their photoshoot. Some rapid tests deliver results in as little as 15 minutes. That means you can hold your photoshoot to capture the brightest moments even in these difficult times.
