Location Charges

Location Hire Fee

You determine the price you want to offer the location owner based on the type of location, number of hours hire, total number of people and the usage of the images/film.

It is then up to the location owner to accept, decline or counter-offer your offer.

Agents Fees

On our “£225/£350 a Day Glamour Allowed” locations we charge a low cost £75/£100 (No Vat) Agents Fees on top of the location hire fee.

On all other locations our Agents Fees are from £150 (No Vat) per shoot day depending on the usage.

Agents fees are not included in location hire fees and must be paid separately. You always pay our Agents Fees to us and the Location Hire Fee directly to the Location Owner.

Making a Booking

Once you have decided on your offer price you can click on the button called “Get Availability / Make an Offer” and fill in the quick 1 minute form at the top of each locations page.

We will pass your offer onto the location owner and get back to you asap with their response.

+ Extras

Overtime (if agreed by the Location Owner) is twice the pro-rata hourly rate.

Recces – Recces are chargeable from £40 and 50% refundable against the location hire fee if you proceed.

Agents Admin Fee – We may charge an Agents Admin Fee if time consuming work.

+ Damage Deposit

You will be required to pay the location owner a cash damage deposit on the day of the shoot at the start. This will be from £200 depending on the location. Assuming there has been no damage, the location owner will return the deposit at the end of the shoot once they have confirmed that the location has been fully reinstated to the satisfaction of the owner and any outstanding fees have been paid i.e any overtime for example.

+ Insurance

Public Liability Insurance is required in all instances at all our locations.

For small business photographers/videographers it is usually reasonably priced so check quotes for say 3 companies online and get the insurance coverage that is right for you.


On some Locations there might be VAT added to the Location Hire Fees and any overtime or extension. VAT will be charged in addition at the appropriate rate where required. If a Location charges VAT it will be stated on the locations page on our site.

Once the Location Hire Agreements have been sent out then there may be a Contract Amendment Admin Fee of £50 to make changes to the contract.

Please kindly note: Our Agents Fees are payable upfront at the time of booking when you have decided to proceed and are non-refundable.

As per our T&C’s you must pay our agents fees every time you use the location or all copyright created during the shoot shall vest in Altostratus Locations.
