BOOKING WORKSHOPS AND TOURS - TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Booking & Payment
To confirm a workshop booking you are required to pay either a non-refundable deposit, or you have the option to pay in full when you place your order. We will email you to acknowledge your order and payment. An invoice will be sent to request the balance up to 60 days before the workshop commencement date. If payment is not received by the specified date, we reserve the right to treat the booking as cancelled and retain the deposit.
Receipt of a deposit does not imply acceptance of the booking. We will confirm acceptance of your booking by email and it is at the time we send out this confirmation that a contract comes into existence between us.
Cancellation of Booking
If you wish to cancel a workshop booking you must advise us by email. The date on which the email is received will determine the cancellation charges that are applicable. Those charges are expressed as a percentage of the total workshop price, as follows: More than 60 days before departure – loss of deposit; 60-40 days before departure – 50%; 40-30 before departure - 75%; less than 30 days before departure - 100%.
Changes to Workshops
We reserve the right to make changes to the workshop advertised. If cancellation is due to circumstances beyond our control (e.g. fire, flood, industrial disputes, bereavement, etc.) we may give less than 30 days notice. Should this unlikely event occur, we will contact you to advise you of the workshop changes, and give you the option of accepting or rejecting the change. If you choose to reject, we will offer you a full refund of your payment (including deposit) for the workshop, or you can transfer any payments already made to an alternative Photo Adventures Workshop.
Workshop Cancellations by Lee Frost Photography/Photo Adventures
We reserve the right to cancel any workshop and should this happen, we will contact you as soon as is reasonably possible. Upon cancellation, we will offer you a full refund of your payment (including deposit) for the workshop, or you can transfer any payments already made to an alternative Lee Frost Photography/Photo Adventures Workshop or tour.
For the avoidance of doubt, as Lee Frost Photography/Photo Adventures is not party to any flight bookings you make yourself and has received no payment for the same, we will not refund the cost of your flight in the event of a workshop or tour being cancelled. Your attention is drawn to the clause below titled Insurance.
In the event of the specified tour leader being unable to attend due to illness or other circumstances beyond our control, another tour leader will be appointed. If this is not possible, the tour will be cancelled as per the terms and conditions stated above.
Lee Frost Photography/Photo Adventures reserves the right to change any of the prices, details, services or other particulars of a workshop or tour before entering into a contract with you. If there are any changes, we will notify you before entering into the contract,

All information and advice given by us on visas, vaccinations, climate, clothing, baggage and special equipment is given in good faith.
In the unlikely event that we become unable to provide a significant proportion of the services you have booked after you depart, we will make alternative arrangements for you at no extra charge, or if this is impossible we will provide you with transport back to the point of departure from your holiday destination and a pro-rata refund for the cost of the remainder of your holiday. In addition, if appropriate, we will pay you compensation of an amount which is reasonable taking into account the circumstances, and which is not covered by the terms and conditions of your own travel insurance.
It is a term of the contract between Lee Frost Photography/Photo Adventures and you, the client, that you will obtain the appropriate travel insurance cover before you set out on the workshop or tour (whether in the United Kingdom or any other country).

Any item of equipment (photographic or otherwise) loaned by Lee Frost Photography/Photo Adventures (or any co-leader on the workshop or tour) to you during the course of the workshop or tour, will be the personal responsibility of you, and any loss or damage must be paid for by you.
You must communicate any perceived failure in the performance of this contract on the spot to the tour leader representing Lee Frost Photography/Photo Adventures, thus giving the tour leader the opportunity to achieve a satisfactory solution.
