Your registration is guaranteed only when we have paid for the tour.
Registrations are allocated on a first come first served basis. If we cancel the workshop you will receive a full refund of your booking fees. Tour itineraries may be subject to change due to weather, road conditions or other unforeseen circumstances related to the normal vagaries of travel and outdoors photography.
Cancellations must be in writing or by email.
If you cancel more than 14 days before the workshop starts, we will refund any money you have paid to us for the workshop.
If you cancel less than 14 days before the workshop starts, we will refund up to 70% of your booking fee.
If you cancel less than 48 hours before the workshop starts there will be no refund of fee.
Occasionally we are forced to cancel or reschedule a tour due to unsafe conditions or other unusual circumstances. If that happens a full refund will be given.
Travel insurance is the responsibility of the participant. To cover unforeseen circumstances it is recommended for people flying in from out of town for the workshop. Camera and equipment insurance is the responsibility of the individual photographer.
Camera experience required
A modest level of photographic experience would be advisable to get the most out of the tuition. Familiarising yourself with the basic camera operations would be strongly advised. Please bring camera manuals in case we need to make adjustments to your camera settings.
Not included in the tours/workshops
Coffee, tea, bottled water and cookies are supplied on our tours. On full day tours, we have the option of stopping at a village cafe or food outlet for lunch. Lunch will be at your own expense.
Some tours/workshops are based on a minimum number of participants booking. This may vary from workshop to workshop. Your tour will not be confirmed or charged until we have the minimum number of participants required for the tour.
What else do you need to know?
There may be some moderately energetic walking involved to get to certain locations, so please consider this related to your physical abilities. If you have any other medical conditions that might affect your enjoyment of the workshop please let us know.
Please bring clothing suited to the weather conditions. Tours in starting in the morning, particularly from April to October can be chilly. Other things to remember: sturdy footwear, hat, sunscreen and camera of course….
