Please read before signing up for our workshops
Although rare, there is always the possibility that we may choose to cancel a workshop, and we reserve the right to do so at our discretion for any or no reason. Should we decide to cancel, we will refund your registration fees in full. If you are concerned about recovering other expenses, please consider purchasing travel insurance.
If you wish to cancel your participation for any reason, you must do so in writing via e-mail.
If you cancel 30 days or more from the workshop start date, you will receive a full refund minus a 50% administrative fee and our payment processing fees (e.g., Banking, PayPal, etc.)
No refund will be given if canceling 29 days or less from the workshop start date.
We make NO EXCEPTIONS to our refund policy. Given our limited group size, an empty seat in a workshop is a significant loss to us, which is our way of protecting ourselves. You may protect yourself, too, at your own discretion, by purchasing travel insurance.
It is impossible to predict the weather when arranging a workshop. Most of our workshops are scheduled in times when we may encounter a range of temperatures from extreme heat to extreme cold, dry conditions, or heavy precipitation. Participants should arrive at the workshop prepared for all weather conditions and temperatures. The Missouri Ozarks enjoy all four seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter), so most people use the common knowledge of the seasons to help guide their decisions.
For liability reasons, we do not accept minors under the age of 18.
Spouses, friends, and other non-photographers are welcome to join as paid participants, or they may find other activities for themselves while you are in class or in the field with the group.
Lodging and transportation costs are not included in the workshop fee unless otherwise stated. We recommend Echo Bluff State Park in Eminence, Missouri as a premier location for your lodging. They offer beautiful rooms, cabins, and even camping options. You can review their lodging options via this link or call them directly at 855-999-6980.
For transportation, you will use your own vehicle and follow the workshop leader to the field locations and the classroom.
