    Hey Guys,
    We just booked our official, they are flying us to a new city across the country and are paying for everything, shoot and I was wondering... what happens if the weather causes us to not be able to shoot? What do you do? Thanks!

    We normally work with the client watching the weather. If we go to a location and it's not possible to fly, we only charge the travel expenses (hotel, tickets or gas) for up to 2 days, after that if the client demand our presence we start charging as a flying day (never happened)
    We had to cancel some jobs one or 2 days before the date because of weather and every time the client understood the reason and rescheduled the job.

    Hi Josh,

    It is pretty standard to charge a weather hold day fee. I think mine is around 500.00 Keep in mind you can get held up for weather for several days from time to time and you need to be compensated for the lost time, ability to work, etc.

    Best,

    Tabb

    Thank you for that information Tabb. We are going to be watching the weather for our shoot closely and if it appears there could be an issue we will reschedule the shoot. Im hoping that isn't the case though. Thank you again!
