I understand these are difficult times for everyone, and even though the coronavirus Shelter in Place restrictions have been financially devastating to my business and many others, I support them completely and have been properly abiding by the order ever since they were first put into effect. This means I have been staying home and not doing photoshoots until I was allowed to do so. This changed starting June 19th, and in-studio photoshoots are allowed, provided that safety precautions are implemented. So this is great news for anyone looking to book a studio rental and perform in-studio photoshoots at Ringlight Studios.
June 19th: (Phase 3) Revisions were made to the Shelter in Place order allowing certain indoor businesses to resume, and this includes in-studio solo photoshoots.
Yes. As per the revised “Phase 3” guidelines, in-studio business activity and photoshoots will be allowed, provided that social-distancing is practiced (at least 6 feet or more where possible). Masks will also be required for anyone only during the brief time you are entering or exiting the common main areas of the building. In my studio, any client/model will obviously not need to wear a mask during their photoshoot, but wearing a mask during the shoot is required by each photographer at all times as the health, safety, and well-being of everyone is first and foremost. We all need to make sure that everyone is safe, while still providing a studio rental option for photographers to use for photoshoots.
Clients entering the main building and common areas of my studio building will be required to wear a mask. This includes everyone entering who will be entering the building. Everyone. Clients/models will obviously not be required to wear a mask while shooting, but please be sure to everyone brings a mask as wears them upon entering the building and when using any common areas because it is required to enter the main entrance of the building. Social distancing also needs to be implemented which means keeping a distance of at least 6ft away from others at all times to keep everyone safe.
That part is easy. Simply go to the BOOK NOW page and submit a request for studio booking. Here you can select the day and time for your desired studio rental, along with any questions or extra services needed.
This is a global pandemic where events are changing rapidly, so I will do my best to keep this page updated with the latest information related to coronavirus restrictions, and government business policies which will no doubt be updated over time. As always, if you have any questions at all, please just let me know. I’ll be happy to answer any questions, and I sincerely look forward to hearing from you. Please stay safe, everyone. 🙂
