How to Use an Advance

March 2, 2020


Is an advance to cover hard costs for production or do you pay the photographer 50% of the fee in advance of the shoot?


The amount of the advance depends on the policy of the client. Sometimes it’s 75% of the expenses or 50% of the total budget, but most often it is to cover the expenses of the shoot and not the photographer’s creative fee.
