Payments and Deposits
With our workshops, you have the option of initially paying only the deposit (approximately half of the entire cost). If you choose this option, we will invoice you for the remaining half 30-days prior to the workshop start date. If you choose to cancel at any time, the deposit is non-refundable unless we are able to fill your spot before the workshop. If we are able to, we will certainly refund your deposit.
In the event that you can no longer make the workshop for which you paid a deposit for, you can reschedule and apply that deposit to a future workshop up to 30-days before the originally booked workshop begins . Your entire registration fee becomes non-refundable and non-transferable 20 days before the workshop.
If we are forced to cancel a workshop for any reason, you have the option of having the entire tuition be transferred to another workshop or you can have it refunded to you.
For anyone traveling to our workshops, we highly recommend purchasing trip insurance to cover your expenses in case of cancellation.
What Does It Take For Us To Cancel A Workshop?
A lot. An act of God, really. If there is rain, thunderstorms, or snow in the forecast, we will typically still hold the workshop. This type of weather can make for some incredibly dramatic images and it’s not something we shy away from. In addition to that, we are cognizant of the fact that our students have purchased plane tickets, made hotel reservations, rented cars and even bought gear specifically for these workshops and canceling can be very disruptive.
The only time we will ever cancel a workshop is if conditions are absolutely guaranteed to bring un-shootable and/or miserable conditions or if some sort of family emergency arises that can’t be ignored. If something like this happens, we will work with you to move your registration to a later date or get you a full refund. We will not be responsible for refunding any costs associated with travel, lodging, or incidentals incurred as a result of registering for a workshop. This is why we strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance for any of our workshops.
If you have a personal emergency arise such as a death in the family or a debilitating affliction, please contact us as soon as possible. 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 5 participants. In the event we don’t sell out or reach our minimum, we will likely still make the workshop happen. However, we reserve the right to cancel the workshop. In this case, your registration will be transferred to another workshop or a refund will be given. Once again, in the event that we must cancel, we will not be responsible for refunding any costs associated with travel, lodging, or incidentals incurred as a result of registering for a workshop.
