Outdoors, yes I don't see an issue there as long as everyone are sensible and following rules.
Indoors studio shoot..... Hmm.... No I don't think so. But then again, if they are 'working' and following rules etc
No it doesn't, and it is wrong. Doing things three weeks late every time is not helping us get back to work.There have been a lot of complaints about how the government have handled this but the fact is, nobody knew what to do.
Sorry OP, this particular rant has nothing to do with your original post.
I'd imagine quite a few people/jobs don't comply with current legislation. I know we don't...... They are working outdoors. They can't work from home. They are socially distanced. They need to make a living and earn a wage.Neither of those situations would comply with the current legislation unless commercial shoots.
If they are not an essential service they shouldn't be doing it.I'd imagine quite a few people/jobs don't comply with current legislation. I know we don't...... They are working outdoors. They can't work from home. They are socially distanced. They need to make a living and earn a wage.
Read the letter I posted above.
So Joe Vloggs is still going out and that means you think it's ok?
Exactly.So are burglars, drug dealers etc....
This isn't about the law. It's about opinions. In my opinion, there's nothing unsafe about doing photography outdoors in a safe way.Read the letter I posted above.
For portraits the law says you are only allowed to leave home for essential purchases, photography services is not included.
Photographers can leave home if they need to for work which allows still the option of wedding and commercial photography but not portraits, family sessions etc.
I think the point is that it's ok for the photographer to be out photographing but not the family. They should only be going out when it's essential or for exercise (locally). Having your photograph taken is neither of those.Yes. I think it's okay for photographers to still continue working if they are being safe especially outdoors.
They shouldn't be government advice is very clear, it is not allowed under current restrictions. Read the last paragraph. While this relates to England the same thing applies in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. At the moment only wedding (which has its own restrictions) and commercial photography is allowed professionally.

My apologies everyone.I think the point is that it's ok for the photographer to be out photographing but not the family. They should only be going out when it's essential or for exercise (locally). Having your photograph taken is neither of those.
I wonder if even shooting wildlife is safe, bearing in mind the original virus jumped from animal to human population, do we want to take the risk of passing this to the wildlife population and creating a reservoir of infection for the future. Just think infection on some peanuts used to entice a subject, then BAM
Don't even get me started on sports and how everyone and their aunt seems to think its so important to carry on in a global pandemici will be photogrpahing an u18 football match this saturday morning.. I doubt its essential on any level... but for me its how i earn a living its my job and i cant do it from home... so..
The way I read things, if you're out for excercise as a family and you stop walking to rest and admire the scenery, there's nothing wrong with one of you taking a picture.I'm talking family shoots and stuff like that
