Vivien’s will quote model rates on a per hour, half or full day or other negotiated rate. If job runs 20 minutes or more into the next hour, overtime will be charged at negotiated hourly rate constituting an additional full hour to be charged. Rates are quoted for use in Australia for 12 months only, unless otherwise specified. For nude or semi-nude work, minimum of double model‘s hourly rate or by negotiation. Agency must clear with model before accepting any nude or semi-nude bookings.
Specific types of usage such as posters, billboards, bus shelters, display cards, dump bins, metrolites, magazine inserts, swing/hang tags, show cards, packaging and social media/internet etc. all require payment of additional fees as negotiated in addition to payment for the model’s shoot time. Some products are also likely to attract payment of higher fees, e.g. underwear, alcohol, hair and beauty products. Different types of usage will be negotiated separately and images taken for one type of usage may not be used for any other type of usage without prior negotiation and payment of an additional fee.
HOLDS / OPTIONS
Holds must be released or confirmed 24 hours (one working day) prior to booking, otherwise other options or definite bookings could take precedence. To confirm job, client must sign and return a booking confirmation sheet provided by Vivien’s.
A cancellation fee of 100% of full fee applies if cancellation made less than 1 full business day prior to commencement of job. If booking is for multiple days, notice of the same number of days must be given in order to cancel without penalty. For example, for a booking of 3 days, 3 business days’ notice must be given otherwise full fee for the entire 3 day job must be paid.
WEATHER HOLD DAYS
First cancellation on weather check if weather is bad – no fee
Second cancellation – half fee
Third cancellation – full fee
All cancellations are full fee if the same model is not rebooked.
HAIR / MAKE-UP / REHEARSALS/ FITTINGS/ WARDROBE CHECKS/ RECALLS
Full hourly rate or as negotiated.
Full hourly rate when outside 10 kilometre radius of city GPO.
Clients are responsible for model’s meals on full day location shoots and all bookings out of the metropolitan area.
PRODUCT EXCLUSIVITY AND RESTRICTIONS
Models’ services are supplied on a non-exclusive basis unless otherwise negotiated by client at time of booking. If a client requires a model to be excluded from performing modelling services relating to competing products or requires product/area exclusivity this will attract higher fees. It is client’s responsibility to check all product bookings with us for conflicts.
Any cause for complaint should be reported to Vivien’s during the course of the booking or immediately thereafter.
INSURANCE AND TAXATION
Vivien’s is not the model’s employer but acts as agent for and on behalf of the model. The Australian Taxation Office regards the end user of the model’s services as entering into a contract of employment with the model. Unless otherwise agreed with Vivien’s, the client is responsible for all taxation obligations associated with each job. Vivien’s does not carry insurance for the model and it is the client’s responsibility to have and maintain all appropriate insurances for the model.
In most cases, client is liable to pay 9.5% superannuation on bookings (including loadings but excluding rollovers).
AGENCY SERVICE FEE
A 15% agency service fee will be charged and is payable on the total model fees for all jobs.
GOODS AND SERVICE TAX
Goods and Services Tax (GST) will be charged at the Government set rate (currently 10%) on the Agency Service Fee.
Full payment is required within 30 days of invoice date. A finance charge of 2% per month will be charged on all invoices not paid after 30 days. Vivien’s reserves the right to turn over client’s unpaid account to a collection agent.
