At Planet Dahlia Ltd, we recognise that every job is unique.
There are often many different variables to factor in, depending on what you need from us and what we need for a project to happen.
So, once we’ve been fully briefed, we will quote you on a bespoke / individual basis.
Of course, if you’re visiting the site for a ‘ballpark’ quote, here’s a rough guide to our rates:
Gardening talks, workshops and presentations from £200 per full day 10am-5pm (for short evening 'gardening club' talks £95 + travel expenses)
Producing/Directing from £250 per day (+ costs of specialist camera / sound crew / kit and editing costs)
Photography Shoots from £200 per day
Freelance horticultural consultancy from £200 per day
Horticultural Research and Advisory work from £20 per hour
Blogs from £50 per entry/post
Social Media Posts - please enquire via email or contact form
All other writing projects - please enquire via email or contact form
Travel expenses - Jobs within the UK are billed at 45p per mile, while billing for accommodation (if needed) will be discussed and agreed with you beforehand.
We require an initial 20% upfront deposit for specialist filming projects, with a further 30% payment on commencement of filming and then the final 50% on completion of editng and delivery.
We are happy to negotiate weekly and monthly rates for longer contracts and to breakdown and supply a detailed quote for unusual and bespoke projects.
Once we’ve received a complete brief from you for your project, we’ll provide a quote in writing. Of course, we’d be more than happy if you’d like to discuss anything concerning the above in more detail.
In general we won’t charge you if we can rearrange a photography shoot / talk / workshop / day of consultancy etc. for another time or, in all probability, another day. In this case, your 20% deposit will be transferred to the new date.
However, if a cancellation does need to happen for any other reason and isn’t rescheduled because our services aren’t required, the deposit won’t be refunded - unless agreed beforehand.
On a similar note, any additional costs that have been incurred will also have to be met.
In general we require two full calender week's notice (14 days) to cancel projects.
At Planet Dahlia Ltd., we’re incredibly proud of and excited by the work we do - including promoting that work.
However, only after you, the client, release that work, and we have discussed its use, will we publish it in any capacity. Total exclusivity is also negotiable.
Normally we do reserve the right, however, to use any footage, photos, graphics, re-branding projects, photo spreads and articles and designs we take or make - for any project - for promotion internally; this can include the footage being used for a showreel or otherwise, to help promote Planet Dahlia Ltd.
However if you’d like to speak to us if this might be problematic - before a project commences - we’d be more than happy to discuss and negotiate exclusivity, rights and ownership.
