Booking Confirmation

Once you have submitted a New Booking, it will appear in the Dashboard with "New" as the status.

Our bookings team will review your brief and either approve it or request further information from you. If the brief is approved, its status will change from "New" to "Active", and you will receive an email to notify you.

When a camera operator has been selected for the shoot, you will receive a calendar invitation with a link to the Booking details and a message via the Comments section of your booking's page with details for the camera operator and a quote for the shoot's price. You will receive a notification just prior to the start of the shoot as a reminder.
