Bridestowe Lavender Estate welcomes commercial photographers onto its premises year-round. While there are no hard-and-fast rules associated with any filming on our property we tend to categorise photography (and filming, in general) into a couple of different classes: Personal Photography, Small Commercial Photography & Large Commercial Photography
Different Rules, Requirements and Charges Apply to Each Group:
Personal Photography: For those individuals or groups photographing for their own use and purposes there are few restrictions other than please be mindful of those around you and please give a respectful distance to farming machinery that is operating in your vicinity. If you have one or two photos that you are particularly proud of please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are posting to social media please don’t forget to tag us (@bridestowelavender) and hashtag (#bridestowelavender, #tasmania, #australia). We have significant restrictions around the use of drones on the farm, with drone hours typically before 9am and after 5pm. After hours photography may be available by prior arrangement.
Small Commercial Photography: Individuals or groups utilising Bridestowe Lavender for photography are welcome to do so but we would ask that you make available some of the better shots for use on our social media and communications channels. We will appropriately attribute and link to ensure that credit remains with you. If the photography involves bringing visitors onto the site for portrait photography, etc. then we ask that the appropriate gate fee be paid for each individual brought onto site. Any other queries or requirements should be directed to email@example.com
Large Commercial Photography: Shoots involving the use of props, require the restriction of access to specific areas, multiple day shoots, out-of-hours facilities and catering can be arranged by appointment and at commercial rates. Bridestowe offers a number of different shoot locations including lavender fields, pine forest, lake settings and farming equipment. We have hosted a number of large commercial shoots including recent campaigns for Camilla, Australian Vogue, Qantas, Woolmark and others.
