penciling dates

We’re happy to pencil dates for you. and we’ll keep them until you’re ready to go ahead, or we get another enquiry for the same dates.

If we do, we’ll come back to you first and give you first refusal. If you’re unable to confirm, we’ll release the dates to our other client, if they’re ready to book.

Once the quote has been confirmed, we’ll get an invoice over to you to secure your booking. The invoice needs to be paid in advance and in full within 48 hours of issue date in order to secure your booking.

If payment is not received within 48 hours, clients risk losing their booking. We will always endeavour to contact you prior to releasing your chosen dates, however this cannot be guaranteed and dates may be released without warning. 


At the end of your shoot, and if applicable we will provide an invoice to cover any charges (electricity use, kit, crew) that occur during your shoot that were not part of the original booking invoice.

Payment terms are strictly 30 days from invoice issue date. 

Should 30 days elapse without payment, you will be sent a reminder requesting immediate payment. If after 24 hours payment is still not made, Band Studios reserves the right to charge interest at 3% of the invoice total per month.
