Prioritizing the safety of our clients and employees is of the utmost importance to our team here at Orange Photography.
Virtual Solutions and Work From Home Policy
All of our employees and associates are already working virtually and do not work out of a shared space. We plan to minimize any contact we have with others and the time spent on shoots as much as possible. Orange is considering further virtual solutions as we are adjusting to the current state of the times.
Employee Social Distancing and Best Practices
We’re following the CDC and ASMP guidelines and Orange Photography requires all employees and associates to comply with the following protocols and procedures while on-set or on-location. This includes prohibiting any large gatherings, observing a six-foot distance from all individuals within their vicinity, avoiding any physical greetings, and limiting the use of any shared equipment. Additional measures will be outlined in a separate update.
Orange is initiating plans to roll out a new cleaning regimen that will be standardized even past COVID-19 measures. We clean and disinfect any of our gear/equipment before and after any uses to kill germs on surfaces to lower the risk of spreading infection.
In the face of realities of the current global crisis, we will need to continue to collaborate and work creatively. Together, we will improvise, adapt and overcome. Orange Photography is here to help while you take actions to keep yourselves and your colleagues safe and healthy as we resume operations.
We Are All In This Together

As we all are adjusting to the quarantine orders from these COVID-19 restrictions, one thing that is certain to come out of this time is the rise of video conferencing. Whether it’s the popular Zoom application, or Google Hangouts/Meet, or Skype of any of the other platforms, we’re all learning how to navigate the transition to working digitally. And while it may seem like a very simple [...]
March 19, 2020 – Shortly after Governer Newsom’s edict tonight – scenes from the Mission District As a non-essential business, we at Orange Photography have been doing our best to weather this pandemic and ride things out. In San Francisco we went into lock down pretty early and it’s had a positive impact on the effects of coronavirus. Though our team is spread out across [...]
Elbow-touching has become a popular alternative to the usual handshake-greeting. As we’ve all seen, events have been cancelled at an alarming rate over concern of the virus spreading exponentially. Organizers have canceled SXSW, many other festivals such as Coachella have either canceled or postponed their events. Huge annual conferences have been shut down altogether like E3, Facebook’s F8, the Game [...]
City Hall looks beautiful lit up in Pride color! It's Pride week and although we can't have the usual celebrations there are some good ways to be involved. Pride and gay rights started with protests so take some time to learn (@lgbt_history and @h_e_r_s_t_o_r_y) or go out and protest if you feel comfortable. Here in San Francisco you can follow @nojusticenopeacesf for some options for ways to participate and make a difference. #gayrights #DearSF @SFEntertainmentCommission, @SFOEWD @dear_sf #sfcityhall...
#Repost @firstexposures with @get_repost ・・・ Week Four of #photographersforourfuture, we're highlighting Meghann Riepenhoff as our featured artist with 2 original prints from her series A Wave in Twelve Parts.⠀ ⠀ Meghann Riepenhoff works with the elusive forces of nature: wind, waves, tides, rain, and light, creating unique cyanotypes that become dynamic recordings of the environments in which they were made.

Today’s a holiday though during #quarantine it’s often hard to tell what day it is. Rode along the Embarcadero when these flew overhead. It was a #memorialday flyover and this was part of their San Francisco portion. #dearSF #cupidsspan #flight #hc130j #helicopter #sanfrancisco...
#MayDay in San Francisco means protests. It kind of makes things feel more normal with San Franciscans protesting and fighting for rights. Of course there was an Anti-Shelter-in-Place Protest around City Hall too but most of those folks were over-protested by anti-Trump counter protestors. We hope everyone is staying safe as our team is during #quarantinelife and it looks like we're starting to be able to slowly open things up here in California and hopefully soon for our fellow events industry folks too!...
If you’d like to support a great local business & feed yourself with some amazing food, check out @lacocinasf and their Community Food Boxes that go on sale online Saturdays around noon. This is a shot taken by our own @genex that was featured today:
#Repost @theworlds50best with @get_repost ・・・ A San Francisco-based non-profit helping low-income women and people of colour to open and grow restaurant businesses, La Cocina was quick in responding to the Covid-19 pandemic. The female-focused incubator immediately pivoted to help the 60 businesses and 33 brick-and-mortar locations it has assisted to open, advising them on how to secure rent abatement, loan holidays and employee assistance, while creating a list of resources for all small businesses, restaurant owners and hospitality workers, which is freely available online.
Next, the team created an emergency relief fund to help provide their entrepreneurs with cash to cover basic expenses, along with an updated list of La Cocina-born restaurants and how consumers can support them during the pandemic. The non-profit is also selling Food Boxes with a week’s worth of meals cooked by their talented women chefs. Menus are published on Saturdays and orders can be completed until 3pm on Tuesday.
