We must receive written notice of your cancellation, at which time the following fees apply: If you cancel 90 or more days prior to the start of the workshop your fee will be refunded less a 10% cancellation fee.
60-89 days prior to the start of the workshop will be refunded less a 25% cancellation fee.
30-59 days prior to the start of the workshop will be refunded less a 50% cancellation fee.
Less than 30 days prior to the start of the workshop there will be no refund.
The percentage is based on the total workshop fee. There will be no exceptions to our Cancellation Policy and cancellation fees are not transferable.
Cancellation of Workshop by New Life Photos
Although extremely unlikely, New Life Photos reserves the right to cancel the workshop at any time for any reason, in its sole discretion (including but not limited to failure to meet a minimum number of participants for the workshop). In the very unlikely event of a cancellation for reasons within New Life Photos’ control, all deposits, workshop fees, or other fees paid by you would be refunded as a genuine estimate of damages. In no event shall New Life Photos be liable for any indirect or consequential damages including flight change or cancellation fees, or any other associated travel costs or associated damages.

In such event, you will not be entitled to any refund, but New Life Photos shall make reasonable efforts to reschedule the workshop, or find you a spot in another upcoming workshop, and apply any payments you had made for the original workshop as a credit towards your participation in the other workshop. Notwithstanding the foregoing, should you be unable to attend such other workshop for any reason, or should it be impossible or impracticable, in New Life Photos’ sole discretion, to reschedule the workshop or find you a spot within 18 months of cancellation of the original workshop, then you shall not be entitled to any refund, credit or transfer whatsoever. In no event shall New Life Photos be liable for any indirect or consequential damages including flight change or cancellation fees, or any other associated travel costs or associated damages
The photographers/instructors are not responsible for non-refundable costs associated with cancelled trips. It is recommended that you purchase travel insurance.
