A Full Day rate is computed for eight (8) consecutive hours (including lunch) between the hours of 8am and 6pm (e.g., 8am-4pm or 10am-6pm). It cannot be converted to an hourly rate during the booking, and must be paid as specified, even if the model/talent is not utilized for the entire eight-hour period.

Saturdays are charged at one-and-a-half times the hourly rate and Sundays or Bank Holidays are charged at double the hourly rate. Double-Time is applicable to any additional time worked over a 12-hour period, also calculated in 30-minute increments.

This category includes bras, panties, slips, hose, teddies, boxer shorts, jockey, sleepwear, swimwear, transparent, or translucent apparel. The usage of the model’s image must not be pornographic, derogatory, or a cause of ridicule or embarrassment to the model. A closed set is mandatory, and the client shall ensure the model is treated with respect and professionalism. The client must also take all the steps necessary to ensure that the health and wellbeing of the model is protected and maintained at all times on set. The rate is double the hourly rate unless specified by the agency.
