Terms and Conditions

In the unlikely event that the workshop does not fill enough spaces to warrant continuing, the class will be canceled and a full refund given. You will be notified at least two weeks in advance if a workshop is not going to take place.  The Yosemite Photography Workshop is not responsible for non-refundable airline reservations in the event of workshop cancellation.  I strongly recommend retaining trip insurance.

Participant-initiated cancellations received 60 days or later before the workshop will receive no refund. Participant-initiated cancellations received prior to 60 days will receive a refund minus $300. Due to the unusual complexity and extensive planning required for these workshops, no refunds will be offered for participant-initiated cancellations after 60 days prior to workshop date unless the spot can be re-filled.

Bears
Bears are a natural part of the national park environment.  It's not likely, but it is entirely possible we will see bears.  There are NO grizzly bears in the Sierra Nevada range.  Our species is 100% black bears, also known as 300 pound furry chickens. 
  If you follow the protocol for food handling we will have no problem with bears.

Weather
Yosemite Photo Workshops accepts no responsibility for extreme weather conditions that prohibits us from moving about as we wish, or accessing certain areas of the park.  Each student accepts responsibilitiy for providing your own tire chains in winter.  Carrying them at all times is required by park policy, and at various times you may be asked to show them in your car at checkpoints established by the park rangers.  

It is not uncommon for Yosemite National Park and surrounding areas to experience extended periods of electrical failure during bad weather, particularly in winter.  Yosemite Photo Workshops accepts no responsibility for inconvenience resulting in park closure or extended periods of road closures.  If the workshop is unable to function due to either weather or park closure (which, in 11 years of operation, has never happened), a spot in a future workshop within 18months will be offered to affected students.  No refunds will be given.
