Here at PAN we are in communication all week long with photo agency owners, both stock and editorial, discussing how their business is under COVID-19.
This from Pete at UK-wide photo assignment agency Dare & Hier.
As a company who provide bespoke commissioned photography obviously most of our bookings have been postponed. However this does not mean we have been quiet. Far from it !
The first thing we did was to pay our photographers invoices, irrespective of their due date. We are keeping in regular contact with all of our photographers on our UK-wide network to see how they are coping, their state of health and their availability for work. Dare & Hier Media are working from home and very much open for business providing post production services including retouching. We are also available for any photography, video or drone services which are required by clients classed as ‘key’ services and where it is safe to do so.
We have also taken this opportunity to launch our long planned Instagram presence. We are hoping that given the current situation where many people are spending more time on social media we will gain followers on Instagram and on our existing Twitter and Linkedin accounts.
Most importantly we have been discussing some large forthcoming photography projects with clients so that when the virus is behind us, our clients and our photographers can hit the ground running.
