You may leave a review for my business on my Facebook page for Martin Lewis Photographer, or on my listing at Guides for Brides which I also strongly recommend to you:
As I am sure you are all aware, the current situation is changing and evolving. Owing to the current situation and government advice, I am presently able to start easing back into business and carry out some general photography, subject to the usual criteria about safety at work, Government regulations and their social distancing measures. Having effectively been shut down for 'lockdown' along with most others, we are now able to start the process of easaing the lockdown and starting to go back to work. This process will no doubt be a slow, gentle and ongoing process, for some time. Whilst it may be feasible to carry out some photography such as some commercial or property photography, it will take longer before it is considered safe and we are allowed to work with groups, such as sports events or weddings.
I will review the situation on an ongoing basis and update this information on my blog and website once the situation changes.I am also signed up to the MPA Covid19 protocol, albeit it is preimarily aimed at photographers who work in a studio environment. It is envisaged that some studios may reopen from around 15th June 2020. The same Health and Safety principles will apply to us all though & most likely for suppliers & groups attending weddings in due course.
I am using my blog and my website to display any up to date messages and information to my clients, suppliers, friends and contacts.
I remain contactable via phone or email. I keep my mobile at hand most of the time, but email or text is the easiest for me unless you need to call if it is urgent. Whilst I use it a little and mainly for my business, I would ask that you don’t message me via Social Media as I may not see your message.
If you are a current client and would like to contact me about the possibility of postponing your event or booking, then please do get in touch via email so that we can chat about the options and future dates and availability and such like. I will be as flexible and as helpful as I can, but suggest you get in touch with me about such issues as early as you are able to.
If you are looking for a photographer for a future wedding, event or project, please feel free to get in touch ideally via email. I have a wide range of very affordable options for your wedding photography and can accept a future booking with a booking fee of just £100.
I will typically always reply to emails quickly so that you know. During these exceptionally uncertain times I will do everything I can to accomodate my future clients requirements. I will always try and communicate with future clients who may, for instance, need to postpone or change their date or booking details, owing to the challenging times we are all presently facing. But please do communicate any plans or ideas about changing or postponing your bookings prior to making and rather than simply informing me of such changes. If you have done so and yet still might need to cancel your booking I will honour my pledge to offer you a full refund of any fees paid, upon cancellation. Naturally, I would prefer a different outcome to this and would urge all future clients to liase directly with me if and when they are considering making such changes.
Existing and future clients can also communicate with me through the post and my bookings will usually always involve a paper booking form being completed. Clients can also pay booking fees or balances on line via debit or credit card or better still via on line banking.
I have come into contact with a whole range of couples, clients, traders and suppliers in the last eighteen years of business and wish to thank all previous and future clients for their past and future support.
Please take care, look after your loved ones and stay safe everyone.
