Did you know that NO photographer is allowed to shoot any lifestyle sessions at all...meaning no newborn sessions, maternity, boudoir, couples or weddings etc...anything at your home or at their studio... during level 4. We fall under LEVEL 1.
The ONLY photographers allowed to work during level 4 are (1) those who are employed by major companies for Product Photography, and (2) those photographers who work for the media.
My husband and I are both self employed and definitely feeling the impact on our businesses and family life...our financial situation is no joke and quite worrying.
We have spend many years building our businesses up and it is extremely sad to see it being affected this way. But...there are so many of us out there struggling and we need to STAYSAFE! AND ACTUALLY SELF ISOLATE! The virus is no joke!
If there are photographers shooting they are risking themselves and their livelihood BIG TIME by advertising ILLEGAL sessions.
They are NOT ALLOWED to offer ANY sessions during level 4. If they are caught, they will be arrested and fined.
But what about me, as the client?
If you book and shoot with an illegal photographer, you yourself run the risk of being arrested and/or fined too! No one wants a Criminal Record. Think before you have a photographer come over to your house for a Shoot during level 4. It is NOT legal and definitely NOT worth it.
