Goldberg Photography COVID safety guidelines
After Volunteering in Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria, I learned a good lesson.
The government will not be there to help when the shit hits the fan. You need to
be prepared for anything and everything!
We take this approach at our studio every day and it has really helped us work safely during this
pandemic. When I started getting wind of a pandemic, I stocked up N-95 masks, cleaning
supplies and 5 gallon buckets of isopropyl alcohol.
Safety and the health of my crew and clients is my #1 concern. Our studio is 6,500 sq ft. Crew members and clients are encouraged to social distance at a minimum of 6 ft whenever possible.
The studio’s HVAC system is equipped with medical grade MERV 13 air filters and UV lights to assist with clean air circulation.
The studio receives a daily deep sanitation that includes the use of commercial grade cleaning supplies and the use of O-Zone generators. This process helps to kill bacteria and viruses living on surfaces and frequently touched places.
• PPE is available to anyone entering the studio.
• Hand Sanitizer, Hibiclens, and hand soap are widely available throughout the studio.
• Additional air purifiers with HEPA air-filters are placed around the studio for additional clean air flow.
• We recently installed a large tent in the parking lot of the studio so we have socially distanced lunches. It is equipped with heat and wifi.
• Our studio is split into zone systems. Each zone is set up for each individual department to keep everyone at a safe distance.
Any person coming to set will be asked to self-screen each day. Before entering, a daily medical questionnaire and temperature check will be administered privately by either Producer or Safety Monitor.
Anyone who reports symptoms will be asked to return home.
Anyone experiencing illness or symptoms of COVID-19 on set must immediately report to
designated Safety Monitor on set.
We are welcoming clients back into the studio and are equipped to provide a designated area where agency and clients can safely work and view images from set. We continue to offer our clients the option to stream studio sessions from any off-site location.
The studio will remain diligent and continue to follow recommendations from the CDC, Illinois Department of Public Health, and Cook County Health Department.
As Goldberg Photography Continues to navigate through these circumstances and our approach to production, one thing has been a constant since day one – we are committed to maintaining safe and healthy work environments. We want our crew members and clients to have full confidence in knowing we are considering every angle when it comes to keeping our sets and facilities safe.
