Effective 4th November 2020

At Perfocal our absolute number one priority is the safety of customers, photographers and team members, no matter what happens. That's why we've introduced contactless shoots and have made some changes to our cancellation policy.

🧼 What is a 'Contactless Shoot'?

A 'contactless' or 'no-contact' shoot is a shoot where you do not directly come in contact with your photographer. Instead, you meet in a safe, agreed upon location, maintain a 2m distance, and then proceed with the shoot as planned for an essential need.

Please reconsider any shoots that are not essential. All parties must observe government advice and NHS guidelines.

Contactless Shoot Do’s and Don’ts

Do 🧤:

  • Maintain a 2m distance at all times.

  • Wash your hands before and after shoots and sanitise them whenever possible.

  • Wear gloves to the shoot

  • Before the shoot, disinfect any surfaces that your photographer may come in contact with.

  • Try to have your shoot in a well-ventilated space. If the space is not well-ventilated, consider wearing a mask. 

  • Use your best judgement to keep you and everyone safe.

Don't 🤝:

  • Shake hands with your photographer.

  • Travel in vehicles with your photographer.

  • Touch your eyes, nose, mouth, or the photographer’s equipment during a shoot.

  • Go ahead with a shoot if it is not urgent or may be unsafe. You can reschedule it for free.
