I hope everybody is well and healthy as we advance to lockdown easing in various stages.
I wanted to let you know that Edinburgh Council and Out of The Blue who own and run Abbeymount Techbase have put various protocols in place to help the studios run, open to studio renters and clients.
More regular cleaning and disinfecting of door handles and toilets are taking place, there is a hand sanitiser by the main door and a one way route from the ground floor upstairs and down.
In my studio I have sanitiser, gloves and masks if requested. If you text me on arrival I can let you in the front door so there is no need to use any door handles at all. There is ample space to sit at least 2m away from me and the camera and then be able to see the computer screen.
If you wish to send work I will use gloves at all times. For office, client studio visits and location work it would be prudent to wait a bit longer.
Portraits can be taken at the studio or outside on location. Video work can be undertaken at the studio of products etc
Slow motion, detail and close up movement around an object for websites, Vimeo etc can be undertaken.
Remote art direction is possible with Zoom etc and low res images emailed for checking.
I look forward to seeing you all at some point in the future when we can create work for your website, online sales and galleries etc
I wish you all well and let's hope we can catch up soon.
