Any inappropriate behaviour will result in being asked to leave the event and your immediate expulsion / ban from the Group.** COVID-19 HEALTH + SAFETY PROTOCOL: Safety and Physical Distancing Protocols will be actively enforced on the day of this shoot for both your and our model's health and safety. Protocols include: - physical distancing - maintaining minimum 2m / 6'-0" space between people - use of appropriate lenses to ensure distance is maintained - min. 50mm - no sharing photos from back of camera! I know this is hard and we all want to share, but in order to maintain distance and not share the same breathing space, this safety precaution must be adhered to at all times. IF you MUST share photos from back of your camera, and cannot distance appropriately (min. 6'-0"), then you are required to "mask up"!! - non-surgical masks and anti-bacterial lotion are recommended. - non-contact model direction will be enforced A detailed protocol sheet will be emailed to all participants that RSVP to the event.
