Cancellation Policy

 

Booking, Payment, and Deposit

I require full payment for 1-day workshops at the time of booking. For multi-day workshops, you have the option of initially paying only the deposit or the workshop fee in full. When paying the deposit, I will bill you the remaining balance 90 days before the workshop start date. If you cancel at any time, the deposit amount is non-refundable unless I am able to fill your spot before the workshop starts. Please note, refunds are subject to a 5% processing fee as credit card processors are no longer refunding their fees to me. Your entire registration fee is due and becomes non-refundable and non-transferable 90 days before the workshop.

For photographers who are traveling for workshops, I strongly recommend purchasing trip insurance to cover your costs in case of cancellation or withdrawal.

Rainy Day Policy

If it’s stormy or rainy, 9 times out of 10 we will still conduct the workshop. This is due to a number of reasons including the unpredictability of the weather, and the difficulties of rescheduling a large number of individuals. In addition many dramatic landscape and seascape images are captured during stormy weather due to the extra drama. I will never cancel a workshop based on the forecast unless the forecast calls for severe weather making the workshop unsafe. If the weather is deemed unsafe, I will strive to give as much lead time as possible before the workshop. I cannot offer refunds for a weather related cancelation, but I will offer credit towards a future workshop.

Under-Subscription

My workshops require a minimum of three participants. In the case of under-subscription I reserve the right to cancel the workshop, in which case your registration will be transferred to another workshop of your choosing or you may request a refund.
