General Terms and Conditions
Full payment is required to secure your position on the workshop.
We aim to provide every participant with a safe, educational and enjoyable experience during the workshops. As there is always certain risks and dangers associated with photography, the outdoors and travel, we accept no responsibility or liability for injury, death, illness, accident, losses or additional expenses associated with workshop participation. Nor do we accept responsibility for damage to equipment, property or digital data loss.
Every participant must assess their own suitability, in terms of fitness and stamina, for the workshop that they join. Medical, equipment and travel insurance is your own responsibility. You must notify us of any medical condition that we should know about. We assume no liability regarding provision of medical care. All information is completely confidential. Where workshop meals are provided, any special dietary requirements should be discussed with the event organiser prior to the workshop. Where possible this will be accommodated but it may require you to bring your own food items to suit your diet.
We shall have no responsibility for additional expenses due to unforeseen delays caused by weather, theft or criminal activity of any kind, political disputes, acts of terrorism, strikes, sickness, failure of flights or other transportation to arrive or depart on time, and other causes beyond our control.
We are not responsible for additional travel or accommodation not specified in the workshop itineraries which may be required en route, prior to or following a trip, caused by airline scheduling or schedule changes, or by individual clients' travel arrangements or by other factors. We cannot assume any responsibility for loss or damage to baggage or personal property. Where workshop accommodation is provided by the organiser, if you decide to stay in alternative accommodation you do so at your own cost and the workshop price will not be adjusted to suit.
We reserve the right to substitute venues and facilities, and to alter the itinerary when deemed necessary or advisable. The right is also reserved to cancel any photo workshop prior to departure upon the refund of all payments received. This includes where the workshop is not adequately booked.
