FAQ clients

Casablanca Models

what is an option?

the client can place an option on a model in the following cases:

1. the client is not sure which type of model he/she wants and is looking at more than one model for the same assignment

(the model reserves the job date until the client has chosen a model)

2. when date and meeting place for the photoshoot have not yet been determined

3. when it is uncertain if the clothes will arrive in time for the photoshoot

an option can be kept open until 24 hours before job start - if the option has not been cancelled by the client at least 24 hours before job start, the client pays 100 % for the option

it may happen that a client makes a special arrangement with the agency changing the notice to less than 24 hours, but this requires accept from both the agency and the model

Casablanca Models

what do you do if a child does not want to work during a photoshoot?

it may happen that a child does not want to be photographed thus causing the cancellation of a planned photoshoot - in that event the client has the right to send the child home 30 minutes after the agreed meeting time free of charge

the client is obligated to call the agency immediately to inform us that the child has been sent home and the reason for this - after the agency has talked to both client and parents, we decide whether the model should be paid or not

often the agency can offer to send a new model with short notice (approx. 1 hour)

please bear in mind that if some of the photos are used, the client has to pay the total fee

the agency cannot be held responsible for minors who refuse to be photographed due to an unpredictable behavioural pattern

if other models have been present, these model are still entitled to their fee

Casablanca Models

what is a prebooking?

It is a good idea to make a prebooking if the client’s time schedule reveals that the photoshoot will be close to 4 hours work or more

a prebooking of a ½ day means that the client pays for 3.5 hours, but is given the availability of the model for 4 hours - if the 4 hours are exceeded, the following hours will be charged by standard hourly rates

a prebooking of a 1/1 day means that the client only pays for 6 hours, but is given the availability of the model for 8 hours. if the 8 hours are exceeded the following hours will be charged by standard hourly rates

if the client has made a prebooking of a model for either ½ a day or a 1/1 day, the agreement is binding - this means e.g. that if the client has booked a model for a 1/1 day, he/she has to pay for 1/1 day even though the model finishes prior to that time

when the client books a model for a ½ and a 1/1 day, the client is responsible for food and drink during the whole period

if a model has changed his/her hairstyle, e.g. from long to short hair, or has changed their hair colour, and the client has not been informed of this, the client has the right to send the model home free of charge

if the model does not live up to the client’s expectations, the client must notify the agency before the beginning of the photoshoot

i have met a model from casablanca models and would like to use him/her for a job/project

if the client runs into one of our models and wishes to use the model for a job or a project, the client is asked to contact us

what to be particularly attentive to when booking

the client is obliged to inform the agency of the objective of the material when booking a model

normally the hourly fee includes the right to use the photos for advertising, brochure, catalogue, postcards, hanging labels, still photos on instore television screens, photos and videos on web, indoor shop signs, max size 70 x 120 cm, for max 6 months in denmark

possible extended right of use must be agreed with the agency before the photoshoot - if there is no special agreement with the agency, we reserve the right to send an invoice for extended use according to our current price list

if the client needs the material for billboard, packaging or banners on busses, it is important to inform us and get a price

it is always a good idea to get an offer if the client needs the material for many different uses/media - and especially if the intended use of the material goes beyond the country’s borders - this is mentioned to avoid unpleasant surprises at the receipt of an addition to the invoice

the price partly depends on the type of model, partly on the client’s use of the material and length of time in use

displays, posters and internet are typically agreed for minimum 6 months at a time - so even if the client needs to use the material for a limited amount of time, the client will be asked to pay an additional amount for this

if the client needs different kinds of material for an extended period of time, please ask for an offer, and we will give you a price reduction

billboards and bus banners are agreed per week - so if the client needs this for several weeks, we recommend that you ask for an offer - it will pay off in the end
