Hello <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

First of all, I hope that you all come through this time in good health during
 this unusual situation for all of us.
After many questions on your part and our intensive exchange with the Ministry of Economic Affairs via the BFF (Berufsverband Freier Fotodesigner und Filmschaffende) about the current situation, we have finally received official statements about the working conditions for photographers.

Upfront: we are allowed to work! Even across national borders and in compliance with the applicable rules.

However, general hygiene and clearance rules should be observed as far as possible:
  • As little physical contact as possible
  • As few participants as possible
  • Sufficient distance (at least 1.5 m) between the participants whenever possible
  • Well-ventilated room

We also advise getting FFP2 masks, simply protective masks, gloves, and disinfectants for the shootings and productions.

I already have everything there myself, so if you are planning portraits, reports, and campaigns again, please contact me and we will find a solution!
I'm aware that not only many companies are feeling the effects of this difficult time, but also we as freelancers. 
So let’s try to see this as relaxed as possible.
Enjoy some new featured commercial work and some new personal snippets.
Yours truly,
Claus M. Morgenstern
