The safety, security and welfare of the individuals with whom we work is our top priority, and we seek to ensure that all of our employees, artists, vendors, partners, and clients adhere to our principles and policies and comply with all applicable laws and regulations. This Code of Conduct applies to all parties who work for and with Great Bowery, Inc. in furtherance of a safe and respectful working environment.
Everyone working on a production shoot or any other creative project should be treated with dignity and respect. All work performed on any project must be performed in a professional manner, free of any and all forms of discrimination or harassment. Any inappropriate conduct toward others, including but not limitedto that based on an individual’s sex, race, color, weight, body shape, size, religion, national origin, ancestry,age, marital or domestic-partnership status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression or transgender status, will not be tolerated.
Every production shoot and/or project must adhere to the following guidelines:
- All work performed must be in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to labor, wage and hour, and immigration laws of the country in which you are working

All models under 18 years of age shall be required to have a parent or legal guardian (or a chaperone, approved in writing, by the parent or legal guardian) with them on set/location.
- Any concerns a project participant has regarding the amount of skin exposure of wardrobe must be considered, and no subject should be pressured to expose themselves more than they feel comfortable.
- Models, photographers, make-up artists, stylists, and all other individuals and attendees shall be treated with dignity and professionalism, and shall not be exposed to dangerous, degrading or demeaning activities or retaliatory behavior.
All project participants must act professionally and refrain from harassment of any kind. Unacceptable conduct includes but is not limited to the following:
