M A Studios – Covid19 Guidance
This guidance has been compiled taking into account all government guidance relevant to this business publicised on the government webpage: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19
Printouts of relevant government guidance are kept on site.
Please read all the following information as it is relevant to every booking.
Failure to comply will cancel your booking, before or after its commencement.
Services We Are Offering
We are re-opening as a photographic studio only, from Tuesday 15th September.
Bookings are by appointment only. A minimum of 72 hours advance notice is required.
Tuesday - Thursday: 11am – 5pm
Friday - Sunday: 11am – 7pm
I, Cameron Amor, will be taking solo modelling bookings only.
I will not be accepting bookings that involve physical interaction with another person.
Unfortunately, the upstairs of the premises will remain closed for the foreseeable future due to lack of ventilation.
There are no windows in the building. The downstairs can be used as the back door can be left open allowing air in, while privacy remains in the main studio room as it is curtained off from the sofa/kitchen area. There is an air purifier in the main studio for added protection. The sofa area and yard may also be used. We may be able to move smaller pieces of fetish furniture into the downstairs studio when requested in advance.
Social distancing measures must be adhered to at all times, so models should not be within 2 metres of each other unless they are from the same household/support bubble.
As the usual changing room is upstairs, the dressing table set can now be used as a temporary changing room. There is a room divider screen that can be used around the area for privacy. Please arrive as ready as possible for your shoot to avoid unnecessary use of the changing area and touching of surfaces. There is a mirror on the dressing table and a full length mirror also. The lighting is not as good as in the usual changing room, so we strongly suggest makeup application before arrival.
No femdom/private dance bookings will be allowed until the government allows.
As stated on the Government webpage:
“All businesses and venues can remain open, or reopen as stated under section one above, except for those in the list below, which remain closed in law:
Sexual entertainment venues and hostess bars”
Before attending the studio:
Payment: Please clear the balance for your booking prior to arrival by bank transfer or PayPal to avoid the handling of cash. We can still accept cash when no cashless options are available. We are looking into contactless card machines and will update our policy when this becomes available. We can supply receipts via email, although paper receipts can still be provided if preferred.
Attendees: We ask that nobody attends who isn’t directly involved in the shoot. It’s a small building, so the more people there are, the greater the risk that the 2 metre distance cannot be achieved. MUA’s are not allowed until the government recommendation changes regarding treatments in the highest risk zone. The number of people attending must be declared at the time of booking in case special preparations need to be put in place. We reserve the right to decline entry to any undeclared attendees or to decline/cancel bookings which we deem cannot go ahead safely. We strongly recommend chaperones do not attend as distance may not be easily achievable. I remain on site at all times and am happy to discuss any concerns directly with the model. I am a model myself and as such, model safety is paramount to me.
Symptoms: If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), please DO NOT attend the studio.
You must stay at home (self-isolate) and get a test.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:
Stay at home (self-isolate) – do not leave your home or have visitors. Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also self-isolate.
Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible. Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, should also get a test if they have symptoms.

Vulnerability: Please advise of any health conditions that may make you (and/or anyone attending the studio with you) more vulnerable to Covid19 so any extended precautions can be considered.
Upon Arrival/During Your Booking:
Arriving At The Studio: Appointments are spaced to allow ample time between each for cleaning and ventilation. To avoid any overlap between appointments, you must arrive within the 15 minutes prior to your booking start time and ensure you are ready to leave no later than 15 minutes of the appointment end. Please enter through the open gate of the yard to the left of the front door. The side door will be open for you to enter.
Test & Trace: You will be asked to confirm that you are not displaying symptoms of Covid19 and to leave details in case they are required to assist the NHS Test and Trace service. We ask all customers and visitors to provide the following information which we will hold on file on the premises for 21 days:
Your name (model name will suffice), contact number and date of visit including arrival and departure time.
Cleaning/Hygiene: Sanitisers, tissues, antibacterial wipes and disposable gloves are available in every room of the studio. You will be asked to sanitise your hands upon entering. Please practise good hygiene by cleaning your hands regularly and catching any coughs and sneezes in a tissue (which should be binned immediately), or the crook of your elbow if caught off guard. Please wash your hands after discarding tissues.
A 2m social distance is easily achievable in the studio, but we do have 3 layer disposable paper masks and disposable gloves available if they are needed for any reason. If a mask is needed, please sanitise your hands before and after putting it on. Do not touch whilst wearing in case of hand contamination. If it becomes damp, change it. Masks should be changed daily and disposed of carefully with normal waste. All bins throughout the studio are non-contact, either open top or pedal bins. All waste will be removed each day unless notification has been received of a visitor testing positive, in which case it will be stored safely for 72 hours as advised.
The bathroom is cleaned after every booking. Antibacterial liquid hand wash, hand sanitiser and paper towels are available. Antibacterial wipes are also provided so you can wipe down any surfaces you touch after use. This protects me, yourself, and the model/photographer during your booking.
The air purifier in the main studio is turned on upon my arrival, at least 30 minutes before any appointment.
We use a Fog-It sanitising fogger machine after every booking. Its special agents attack and destroy all germs, bacteria, viruses and spores in its path leaving a cleaner, safer environment.
All frequently touched surfaces are cleaned after every booking. The bedding is changed after every booking, with freshly cleaned bedspread, pillow cases and bottom sheet. We interchange between 2 pairs of pillows.
Ventilation: An air purifier has been placed in the main studio room. Please leave this running throughout your booking. Please allow a 5 minute break at least every half an hour so the curtain can be opened to allow extra air flow. This can be done during an outfit change as the changing area has a screen around it for privacy.
Food/Drink: Sadly with the guidance that crockery/utensils should not be shared, we no longer offer free tea/coffee etc. We do have 500ml bottles of chilled still water available. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks, but we ask that food be consumed in the yard where there is a table underneath awning. All breaks should be taken in the yard, weather permitting.
Personal Belongings, Etc.: Please avoid bringing any personal items that are not necessary for your shoot. There is limited space and the less often things are moved around, the lesser the risk of transmission. The model and photographer will be offered separate space more than 2 metres apart to store their personal belongings. Please handle your own items. If items are needed to be passed between attendees, please sanitise your hands before and after or use disposable gloves.
Music is not allowed as voices must not be raised as it increases the risk of transmission.
