COVID-19, and what it means to photographers...

March 12th 2020  |  Worldwide

THE date where photographers saw most (if not all) of their booked projects, vanish from their agendas.  Those in the events (Concerts, sports, festivals, etc...) saw it the quickest, and will most likely see it the longest, as experts in the field are saying that it will take considerable time before things get back to where large venues will be open to the public again.

For us personally, March of 2020 would have been the highest invoiced month since we started in photography almost 15 years ago.  Instead, we are faced with a situation beyond our control, and with so far, very little light at the end of the tunnel.

So many unanswered questions... How long will this last?  Will this pandemic leave our country in a huge recession?  Will we ever see work as it once was? How many of us won't be able to financially survive without leaving the arts to wander off to something else? 

Let's hope this fiasco is contained quickly, and that operations are back to normal in the nearest future possible.

Meanwhile, let's all stay safe and healthy!
