Workshop Cancellation Policy

Sometimes circumstances beyond our control may interfere with our best efforts to complete a scheduled workshop. Creative Light Photography Workshops cannot be held responsible for any unanticipated circumstances (i.e., natural disasters, park closures, inability to access locations, weather, etc.) that either prevents you from attending or from us altering our locations shoots. We will always do our best to work around any unanticipated circumstances. I would also remind you that some of the most striking images are created during times of less than perfect weather, so it would be highly unusual for the workshop to be cancelled for these reasons, except in the most unusual of circumstances.  Creative Light Photography Workshops reserves the right to make the final determination.


Registration Fee: 

 Because each registration requires a degree of planning and processing, a stated non-refundable deposit is due at registration


Workshop Payment Refund:

Your workshop fee minus the non-refundable  workshop deposit amount will be refunded to you if you cancel 91 days prior to the workshop.

No refund will be issued if you cancel 61-90 days prior to the workshop, However, you may transfer your workshop fee to another workshop

If you cancel 60 days or less  prior to the start of the workshop, you will forfeit the entire fee, unless we can find a replacement.  If we do  find a replacement, you may transfer the amount to another workshop of your choosing, provided there are openings.

Failure to pay balances by due date may result in being dropped from the workshop with no refund of deposit.

Special Notice regarding Covid 19

When we found it necessary to cancel workshops this spring and summer because of the Covid outbreak, we issued full refunds to all clients.  We made this exception to our cancellation policy as a courtesy because of the unusual and unexpected nature of the situation.

As we move forward into the rest of 2020 and onward into 2021, we will return to our previous policy of not issuing refunds if a client cancels after signing up for a workshop.  We understand that you may need to cancel because of Covid concerns, and we want you to do what is best for you. Because of this, we strongly encourage you to purchase trip insurance to cover any loss you might incur should you need to cancel. 

In the unlikely event that Creative Light would have to cancel a scheduled workshop because of travel restrictions or government regulations, we will refund 95% of any monies you have paid.  The remaining 5% will be used to cover the cost of Paypal and bank fees.

Thank you for understanding our return to our normal refund policy.  Please consider trip insurance when you sign up for a workshop.
