Payment: Full tuition investment is due at the time of registration. However, these workshops may offer a payment plan option. If chosen, the first month's payment is due upon registration, with the following payments automatically withdrawn for the specified subsequent months. If chosen, the registrant agrees to pay the full balance of a payment plan. Payment in full and installment plan payments are non-refundable however, payment may be transferred to a future tour or workshop.

Small Group Captivated by the Rockies Workshops:

These are multi-day workshops, usually beginning on a weekday. A deposit will be offered.  

Deposit & Payment: The deposit made is considered partial payment toward the workshop's full investment and will hold your spot. Deposits are non-refundable but are transferrable to a tour or a future workshop.

If you fail to submit the final registration balance fees by the required date, specified at your time of purchase, you will forfeit your spot, and the Company 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 but transferrable to a tour or a future workshop.

**NOTE: ANY COSTS INCURRED DUE TO CANCELLATION, SUCH AS HOTEL LODGING, OR LOSSES SUFFERED BY THE COMPANY, ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF YOU, AND THAT PORTION WILL NOT BE TRANSFERABLE TO A FUTURE TOUR OR WORKSHOP.**

**NOTE: CANCELLATIONS MADE FOR ALL TOURS AND WORKSHOPS WITHIN 14 DAYS OF THE SERVICE START DATE ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-TRANSFERABLE.**

COVID-19 and ILLNESS Clause

If you become ill due to COVID-19 or some other ailment and cannot attend a tour or workshop, a refund will not be issued however, you may transfer your investment to a future tour or workshop. All Company incurred expenses that may occur due to withdrawal from the tour or workshop will be subtracted from the amount transferable.  

Should your illness be grave, preventing you from permanent future participation in a tour or workshop, your investment will be refunded minus all company incurred expenses plus a $250 administration fee.

If, in any case, a refund is issued, an administration fee of $250 will be subtracted from the refunded amount. 

*Refund administration fees may change without notice based on current transaction rates.

If for some reason, a refund is issued, monies will be processed by an external payment processor. The Company cannot control payment refund processing speed.

Tour and Workshop Cancellation Clause

If circumstances arise due to a Tour or Workshop being unable to run, such as low enrollment, facilitator illness, COVID-19 health pandemic restrictions set by governing authorities, facilitator casualty, an act of God or any other cause beyond the Company'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 Company's responsibility. Travel insurance is strongly recommended. Delays or additional expenses created by weather, illness, etc., are the responsibility of You. 

Should it be necessary to cancel a small group workshop due to underbooking, a full refund will be provided. Refunds will occur 30 days before the scheduled workshop date. After that point, only severe and unforeseen circumstances will cancel the workshop.

Liability

The Company carries business liability insurance, and the proof is available by request.   

You will receive and be required to sign an acknowledgement of risks. This will be due upon receipt and before a Tour or Workshop.

Injury or accident impacting oneself, theft or damage to photographic or other equipment is not the Company's responsibility. Insurances protecting your body, travel and gear are highly recommended.

In the event of a workshop, time indoors discussing post-processing will occur.

To the fullest extent permissible by law, you further agree that you shall be responsible for all costs associated with initiating the arbitration and for the administration of the arbitration.

Indemnification

The Company reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you. In this event, you will fully cooperate with the Company in asserting any available defences.

Termination And Access Restriction

The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to the Tour or Workshop and the related services or any portion thereof at any time, if You become disruptive to the Company or other Tour or Workshop participants, if You fail to follow the Tour or Workshop guidelines, or if You otherwise violate this Agreement. You shall not be entitled to a refund of any portion of the fees and shall not be excused from any remaining payments under a payment plan in the event of such termination.

Entire Agreement​

This Agreement, along with the Company’s Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and Disclaimer, constitutes the entire agreement between You and the Company with respect to the Tour or Workshop, and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between You and the Company with respect to the Tour or Workshop.
