Credit & Refund Note:
* Any refunds will be subject to a $25 processing fee plus the credit card fee, which right now is 3%. We recommend to buy travel insurance for photo tours and overnight workshops.
** Credit towards another tour or workshop with a processing fee of $25 deducted.
*** For fully booked photography workshops, photo tours and overnight workshops, if we can fill the canceled spot, we will provide credit minus $50 processing fee.
The organizer is entitled to cancel a workshop at short notice if the minimum number of participants is not reached or if there have been any other significant changes for the execution of the workshop. We therefore recommend booking the arrival only after confirmation of the workshop, and above all, taking out travel insurance.
If the photo workshop or photo trip has to be canceled due to unforeseeable circumstances such as natural disasters, epidemics or strikes, the organizer has the right to do this without an alternative date. Repayment will only be possible to a limited extent. (If bookings such as hotels etc. are booked by the organizer through a travel agency, the cancellation fees of the travel agency apply.) Further claims cannot be made.
The fees for workshops will be reimbursed in full by the organizer if the event had to be canceled by the organizer mistake.
