Read the Branch Chair’s article on rates.
The Camera Branch Rate Cards are based on real-world data provided by members and non-members though the ongoing Rates Survey. We rely on this information to ensure that the cards represent the most accurate & up-to-date picture of what people are actually being paid in our industry. We need to keep collecting as many responses as possible, with a wide variety of examples from different types of jobs in multiple sectors. You are encouraged to make multiple entries over time or to represent different types of jobs and rates.
- Fill in the Rates Survey.
General queries should be sent to the main email address, firstname.lastname@example.org which is checked frequently. You can send general rate information and documents to email@example.com, but this address is not regularly checked.
We’re particularly keen to hear from Specialist Rig/Gimbal Technicians who are currently under-represented on the rate card.
All submissions will be treated in strict confidence.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
