Deposits & Payment: Deposits made are considered partial payment toward the cost of the retreat and will hold your spot. Deposits are non-refundable unless another person fills your spot at which point the deposit will be refunded minus an administration fee ($125 CAN) or you may choose to use the full deposit towards a future retreat, if the spot you put on hold is filled. If you fail to submit final registration balance fees by the required date you will forfeit your spot and the retreat facilitator is free to open that spot to the public. Your deposit will not be refunded in such a circumstance. Once your full payment has been processed, it is non-refundable. However, if you are able to fill the spot your payment will be refunded minus an administration fee ($250 CAN). In such circumstances the retreat facilitator is willing to attempt to assist you in filling the spot by advertising.
If circumstances arise due to the retreat being unable to run such as illness, casualty, act of God or any other cause beyond the retreat facilitator’s control all tuition paid, including the deposit, will be returned, with no further liability. Additional money spent on travel preparation will not fall under the retreat facilitator’s responsibility. Travel insurance is strongly recommended. Delays or additional expenses created by weather, illness, etc are the responsibility of the participants.
Should it be necessary to cancel the workshop, due to under booking, a refund will be provided in full. Refunds will occur 60 days before the scheduled retreat date. After that point, only severe and unforeseen circumstances, will cancel the retreat.
Gina Yeo Photography carries business liability insurance and proof is available by request.
All workshop participants will receive and be required to sign an acknowledgement of risks. This will be sent following the receipt of deposit and will be due with final payment. In addition, injury or accident impacting one's self, theft or damage to photographic or other equipment is not the responsibility of the retreat facilitators. Insurances protecting your body, travel and gear are highly recommended.

Weather is always unpredictable and cannot be guaranteed. Workshop participants agree to come prepared for all conditions by bringing proper clothing and gear. Should the weather be severe enough to keep us indoors during the retreat, we will spend the time in valuable discussion of techniques, creativity and post processing.
