But what does this mean for school and nursery photographers?

It is widely agreed the UK is a few weeks behind other countries in how the Coronavirus is developing.

Therefore, our international team will share their insights and learnings on how photographers adapted in countries like Germany and the US, why we expect the UK to follow the same path and key questions facing the industry such as:

  • Will school and nursery photo days still go ahead?
  • How can I adapt my way of working to meet social distancing guidelines?
  • How can I proactively accommodate children, parents, and establishments?
  • How likely is it that the facilities will have to close again? How do I prepare for it?
  • Are the parents willing to spend as much money on photos as before?

Matt Breen, Business Development Manager for GotPhoto leads this discussion with

  • Julius Nadolny, GotPhoto and  Head of Customer Acquisition, offers his perspective of the German market and how the school photography industry is handling the situation.
  • Michael Baird, GotPhoto USA Business Development Manager, brings his knowledge of how the US market is adapting to the Coronavirus situation.
