Conducting Workshops Safely
I have always tried to carry out my workshops in a professional manner, and this includes considering the welfare of all participants, their health and safety. As such, before starting to lead workshops I completed a mountain leader course (lowland), became a member of the BMC (British Mountain Council), and completed a First Aid Outdoor course.
It should go without saying that I obviously carry the necessary Public liability insurances, required when taking on a position of responsibility such as a workshop leader.
As of March this year there is a new danger we need to be mindful of, Coronavirus. Whilst the infection rate in the UK is considered to be Low, and as a country we are being encouraged to get back to a new kind of normal, there are still precautions that we need to take. As such, Visit England have issued guidelines and recommendations for these activities and I am pleased to be able to confirm that ‘Dave Fieldhouse Photography’ has been registered as ‘Good to go’.
All workshops from now and until further notice will need to comply with the guidelines, whether that be mask wearing, hand sanitising or social distancing measures. Details will be issued before joining the workshops, along with a brief questionnaire that will need to be completed.
The aim is to allow us to conduct these workshops in a safe manner while still getting the maximum from them.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to drop me a message.
I am delighted that my image ‘Welcome to Narnia’ has been selected as the category winner for this years competition. Having not entered the BWPA’s before I didn’t really know what to expect. So I was both surprised and excited to receive a phone call from the organiser of the awards, Maggie back in July, to confirm that my shot had been chosen.
There is a stunning book available containing over 150 of the winning, commended and highly commended images that is well worth a look at, as well as an exhibition that I believe tours various venues around the UK next year. I will try to keep you updates with details when released.
