Hello all,

I am on my first day of a three day paid corporate/ promotional.

I arrived at location this morning and the weather was awful. We shot a couple of shots (mainly a test for the HD transfer for edit). The director called it and we are rescheduling for latter this week (wed thru fri).

How do I charge? Is it a half day today? I now have to go and return camera gear, and most likely pick it up tomorrow. At present I am only charging an hourly rate for gear pick up.

What happens if I invoice them and they kick up a stink. Should they be versed in costs for loss of shooting because of the weather?

This leads me to another question. What happens with weather holds? Say you are shooting mon to wed and there is a weather hold thur. Do you invoice them for the weather hold day, considering you cannot get booked for that day? What happens if one of the days is cancelled before you leave home, do you still charge?

Thank you,
