Booking and Payment

Registrations are allocated and guaranteed only upon receipt of a deposit. A non-refundable but transferable deposit is required at the time of booking.  Life happens, we get it.  If for some unforeseen circumstance you can no longer attend Film Camp, you can sell your seat to someone else.  The remaining balance owing must be paid prior to 30 days before the camp commencement date.  If we do not receive your payment by the due date, we reserve the right to treat the booking as cancelled and retain the deposit. If a booking is made 60 days or less prior to the departure date then the full amount is payable at the time of booking.  

 

Cancellation

We reserve the right to alter or cancel any retreat at any time. For reasons including, but not limited to, too few participants, adverse weather, instructor illness, logistical problems such as earthquakes, or any other circumstances, which may make operation of the camp inadvisable. If any part of the camp has to be cancelled prior to the start date of the trip all fees are refunded in full. If for some reason the camp needs to be cancelled part way through the weekend there are no refunds.

We reserve the right to cancel any camp with inadequate enrolment 14 days beforehand. In the event that a camp has to be cancelled due to inadequate enrolment, all fees and deposits paid are refunded in full.

We are not responsible for any expenses or damages incurred by workshop members as a consequence of any cancellation, such as costs expended in preparing for the trip including non-refundable or penalty-carrying airline tickets, equipment, lost income, or any other trip-related losses or expenses.

Film Camp cost includes your accommodation, a catered and styled Welcome dinner, your tuition fee and camp activities. All other expenses are the responsibility of the participants. Not included are any airfares, airport taxes, pre and post retreat accommodation, entrance fees or items of a personal nature. Price also excludes any insurance coverage for trip cancellation or interruption, travel accident, travel delay, baggage delay or baggage theft, medical or hospitalization expenses (we recommend you obtain coverage for these items).

 

Insurance

You must have travel insurance, including coverage for personal health, emergency medical evacuation, emergency medical expenses, and trip cancellation, which would reimburse you for non-refundable airfare and trip cancellation fees. We cannot accept liability for insurance costs, loss of deposits, airline cancellations or delays or penalties incurred by the purchase of non-refundable airline tickets or other expenses incurred by participants in preparing for this workshop. We do not accept liability for any insurance costs if a workshop is cancelled.

 

Client Responsibility

We reserve the right to decline to accept or retain any member of any workshop should such person's actions impede the operation of the workshop or the rights or welfare or enjoyment of other members of the workshop, and it is agreed that no refunds will be given in such circumstances.

In the event of medical emergency and/or repatriation from a camp by whatever means, the responsibility of such costs will be borne by the client.

Every participant voluntarily assumes all risks and will hold us, the camp leader, any co-leader, assistants and speakers, harmless from any and all liability, actions, causes of action, claims, debts, and demands which arise in connection with the retreat. The terms hereof shall serve as a release and assumption of risk for your heirs, administrators, and executors, and for all members of my family.

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 accommodation not specified in the camp 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.

In no event shall we have any liability for incidental or consequential damages, however characterized.

We reserve the right to substitute hotels, venues and facilities, and to alter the itinerary when deemed necessary or advisable. The right is also reserved to cancel any photography camp prior to departure upon the refund of all payments received.

Changes

All Film Camp schedules and plans are tentative and made in the interest of exciting photographic opportunities. We reserve the right to change, at our exclusive discretion, schedules, plans and itineraries, depending on weather, health or safety considerations, or any other factors related or not related to the photographic opportunities, as we see them fit into the photography camp.

While significant efforts will be made to provide the camp in a truthful manner, all participants acknowledge that outdoor photography is subject to many variables including but not limited to environmental conditions that cannot be guaranteed.
