Terms & Conditions
Booking fees are charged per hour, half or full day or other negotiated rate.
Overtime will be charged if job runs over 20 minutes or more into the next hour, resulting in a full hour fee. Our rates are valid for twelve months only, unless otherwise agreed.
Any agreement for nude or semi-nude work will be charged at a minimum of talent’s hourly rate or by negotiation. Requests for such work must first be agreed between the agency and the talent.
Unless otherwise agreed on the booking confirmation form, booking fees provide an entitlement and right for the client to use one image via a single published medium for one year or for a single season in the case of a fashion booking from the date of the booking, in Australia only.

If a job finishes prior to the originally booked time, Talent must be paid for the original hours booked regardless of whether the job was completed early. If a job takes longer than the originally booked hours then overtime/penalty rates will apply. If the total hours for a booking are reduced by the Client with less than Two Working Days’ Notice, cancellation fees will apply.
Additional fees are payable for the right to use the talent’s image or reproductions, or adaptations of, or drawings derived from that image, or any other representation of it, either complete or in part whether alone or in conjunction with any wording or other images, photographs, drawings or anticipated purposes which are in addition to and outside the scope of the initial permitted use, as detailed in the booking confirmation form.
Use of a talent’s image or its reproductions, or adaptations, or drawings derived from that image, or any other type of usage such as magazine inserts, show cards, social media and the internet, posters etc, will all attract an additional fee which will be in addition to payment for each talent’s shoot time.
Depending on the usage required, additional fees will be negotiated separately for each type of usage.
