Agents Admin Fee – We may charge an additional 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 a minimum £300 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.

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

You always pay our Agents Fees to us and the Location Hire Fee directly to the Location Owner.

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.
