Booking, Payment, and Deposit
We require full payment for our 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, we will bill you the remaining balance 60 days before the workshop start date. If you cancel at any time, the deposit amount is non-refundable unless we are able to fill your spot before the workshop; in which case, we will refund your holding deposit. Please note, refunds made more than 60 days after payment are subject to a 3% processing fee. More than 60 days before a workshop, you can reschedule and apply your deposit to a future workshop (180 days for international workshops). Your entire registration fee becomes non-refundable and non-transferable 60 days before the workshop (120 days for international workshops).
If we cancel a workshop for any reason, your entire registration fee will be transferred to another workshop or refunded to you at your discretion.
For photographers who are traveling for workshops, we 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.
We will never cancel a workshop based on the forecast and will make a weather assessment the day of the workshop. The only time we will ever not go out is if we determine conditions are unsafe or absolutely unshootable.
If you have a personal emergency such as a death in the family, please contact us. We are willing to work with you to reschedule or refund your fee on a case-by-case basis.
Our workshops require a minimum of three participants. In the case of under-subscription we 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.
