Coronavirus & Austin Taylor Photography
UPDATED statement from Austin Taylor

Updated 10 August 2021

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 everywhere and restrictions are updated on a frequent basis. I am following the instructions and advice published by Scottish Government here:

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 5th January 2021, and within the updated guidance, I am now able to offer the following services within Shetland, but please note that I am currently limiting travel to Shetland mainland and permanently connected islands.

Commissioned photo shoots - external
I am currently able to offer external photo shoots of people, buildings and things. All Scottish Government guidance must be adhered to, including that no more than 6 people from 2 households including mine may meet, social distancing is maintained, and hygiene guidance is followed for all clients and others present. Note that children under the age of 12 from these households do not count towards the total number of people counted in a gathering.

Commissioned photo shoots - Weddings and other Life Events
I am able to photograph Weddings and Funerals indoors or outdoors provided all Scottish Government guidance must be adhered to

"Non-stop", impromptu or spontaneous individual portraits
- if I see you whilst out on a walk I will be happy to photograph you there and then. No more than 6 people in total can meet from one other household to mine, not including children under 12.

Commissioned photo shoots - internal
I have resumed all internal photo shoots for vacant and occupied property and for photographing people, provided all Scottish Government guidance is adhered to.

Product Photography - internal
I am able to undertake product photgraphy at my studio, provided all Scottish Government guidance is adhered to in delivery and collection of products.

Photo workshops and teaching
I have resumed face-to-face external workshops that can be supplemented by a range of online "Better Photography for You" workshops available for live delivery one-to-one or to small groups. I am also available for online consultation and teaching via video conferencing.

News and photojournalism
I am able to cover external news stories.

If you wish to discuss any of these, or any other, project - please contact me.

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

**Please note that, at all times, Scottish legislation and guidance is primary and will replace these guidelines in any situation where there may be conflict.**
