Coronavirus & Austin Taylor Photography
UPDATED statement from Austin Taylor

Updated 25 June 2020

The Coronavirus COVID-19 global pandemic has had a massive effect, seriously affecting the health, livelihoods and businesses of millions of people worldwide. There has been a requirement to stop many aspects of daily life in Britain and in many other countries but this lockdown is now easing in Scotland, and elsewhere. I am following the instructions and advice published by Scottish Government here: https://www.gov.scot/coronavirus-covid-19/.

The guidance continues to affect my ability to undertake photographic commissions, attend events, run photo workshops or attend any sales events. My family's safety and health, and that of my customers and the general public is of the utmost importance to me.

From 29th June 2020, and within the updated guidance, I am now able to offer the following services within Shetland:

Commissioned photo shoots - external
I have resumed external photo shoots for all situations and people (individuals small groups) where social distancing is maintained and the guidance on numbers is followed. I am currently limiting travel to 5 miles from Lerwick but this limitation is removed from Friday 3 July for all of Mainland and permanently connected islands; travel to other islands by ferry may still remain restricted after this date.

Commissioned photo shoots - internal
I have resumed internal photo shoots for property, fixtures, moveable goods and the like for all situations where social distancing is maintained and I am able to enter the property unaccompanied (I will provide my own hand sanitiser and face covering). I cannot currently accept commissions to photograph people indoors. I am currently limiting travel to 5 miles from Lerwick but this limitation is removed from Friday 3 July for all of Mainland and permanently connected islands; travel to other islands by ferry may still remain restricted after this date.

Weddings and other events
I am able to attend small, external weddings and external events where social distancing is maintained and the guidance on numbers is followed. I am currently limiting travel to 5 miles from Lerwick but this limitation is removed from Friday 3 July for all of Mainland and permanently connected islands; travel to other islands by ferry may still remain restricted after this date.

Photo workshops and teaching
I am not currently offering any face-to-face workshops or teaching but am available for online consultation and teaching via video conferencing; please contact me for details.

News and photojournalism
I am able to cover external news stories where social distancing is maintained and the guidance on numbers is followed. I am currently limiting travel to 5 miles from Lerwick but this limitation is removed from Friday 3 July for all of Mainland and permanently connected islands; travel to other islands by ferry may still remain restricted after this date.

All other projects - please contact me to discuss.

I completed a personal project to take a photograph on my daily exercise walk with our new puppy from a different location for the duration of the lockdown and these are all available on my instagram page at: www.instagram.com/austintaylorphotography/

Finally, my galleries remain online for sales and all products listed will be delivered as soon as possible (delivery times may be slightly extended to take account of the current restrictions and the arrangements of my production and delivery partners).

If you have any queries at all, or just simply need advice, please don't hesitate to contact me
