COVID-19 (Corona Virus)
WHAT IS BEING DONE AT GEORGIA POLITIS PHOTOGRAPHY?
At Georgia Politis Photography, I am a sole operator. I have always practiced social distancing with my photography, and encourage this as much as possible. However, with new restrictions in place, I understand that many people are now no longer able to celebrate their special occasions.
ALL booked events from 17 March, 2020 to 17 September 2020 are entitled to a full credit of what they have paid to date. The credit is valid for 12 months, and must be used within that 12 months - Credits cannot be exchanged for cash, refunded or transferred to another person. The credit must be used by the same client, in one booking. Bookings must be made with advanced notice (at least four weeks for small events, and at least six months for weddings), are subject to availability and a new contract agreeing (and understanding) our booking terms.
Please note that this situation is beyond both the client and studio, is a unique situation due to lockdown laws, and will not extend to any other form of cancellation or postponement beyond September 17, 2020. The current contract will still stand for all events booked, with this term being added to those involved in the lockdown period.
Information about Georgia Politis Photography's Services as of 24 March 2020:
CHRISTENINGS: At this time, unless advised otherwise, all christening bookings up to 1st August will be offered a credit of the amount they have paid so far to be used within 12 months, as this is considered as a non-essential gathering limited up to five people. Five people includes the Priest, Chanter, Parent/s and Godparent - a Photographer exceeds this amount and therefore I am unable to carry out my services following the new restrictions in place.
WEDDINGS: Weddings have a limit of five people, which includes the couple and celebrant / priest and a witness. Any more than this amount is banned. This will likely mean I am unable to photograph due to the person limit, and I am offering a full credit of the amount paid so far useable within 12 months of the booking date.
PORTRAIT SESSIONS: At this time, I am still taking bookings for outdoor portrait sessions as I have always photographed from a distance. However, if your family is more than four people you will be able to use your voucher within 12 months of the invoice date.
SMALL EVENTS: All small events will be offered a credit for the amount they paid, useable within 12 months of the original booking date as these are now banned.
Please note that if I am not available on your new date, your credit can still be used in other services or products as long as they are booked in advance, and are used BEFORE the 12 month original booking date anniversary.
