    • Business

We're bringing you a special podcast episode today, as we discuss coronavirus with very special guest Simon Leclercq. Simon is in quite a unique position to discuss this with us, as, not only is he a brilliant wedding photographer (having won 8 awards from us in total), but he has also been a doctor for over 5 years, and is currently on the frontlines working on this global pandemic. We discuss lots of aspects in this episode, both from a health point of view, and in terms of our wedding photography businesses, including:

• what's happening in Belgium right now (where Simon is based),
• analysing what's happening in other countries and taking action,
• the vitalness of protecting the elderly and those with underlying health conditions,
• the psychological effect of isolation and loneliness,
• the good and bad side of social media during all of this,
• the power of good deeds,
• trying not to worry about how long it could last (as we just don't know),
• the impact on us as wedding photographers and the importance of positivity,
• making the most of any financial help, including mortgage holidays,
• using our own personal strengths and creativity to help others,
• practical tips and advice on how to get through this, both mentally and on a business level,
• why self-isolation is absolutely vital,
• why there's no need to panic but how we need to take our responsibilities seriously,
• why the vast majority of weddings, if affected, will be postponements rather than cancellations, and a great practical tip on how to deal with postponements for dates you can't do,
• how everybody can make a difference,
• and more
