WORKSHOPS & TUITION

1. Dorset Workshops

A deposit of 50% is required for all local workshops with full balance to be paid 28 days prior to the workshop commencing.

Please note:

Clear skies cannot be guaranteed on UK workshops, Ollie operates his workshops as fairly as possible by designating two day slots to each workshop in-order to commence photographic work on the one with the best looking weather. Please be aware that no refunds can be given for overcast skies and general nightscape practice methods will still be taught and work will also commence in light showers. For heavy downpours and complete wash outs, an alternate date will be offered that is usually some months away, however, this will be agreed by mutual consent.

If the workshop is booked within the 28 days then the full balance is due. If the client cancels the workshop up to 42 days prior to the workshop commencing 20% of the workshop cost will be deducted from any refund, from 21 days 40% and from 7 days onward 100% will be deducted from any refund.

2. Wider UK Workshops

For workshops in counties other than Dorset, a 20% non refundable deposit is payable on booking with the entire balance due 56 days before the workshop commences, if the workshop is booked within 56 days of the course start date, the full balance is payable. If the client cancels the workshop up to 41 days prior to the workshop commencing, a further 20% of the workshop cost will be deducted from any refund, from 28 days 50% and from 14 days onward 100% will be deducted from any refund.

3. Photography Tours Outside of the UK Mainland

For photography tours outside of the UK mainland, deposit (please note, depending on the workshop, deposit may be non-refundable, please check with Ollie prior to booking) is payable on booking with the entire balance due 90 days before the workshop commences, if the workshop is booked within 90 days of the course start date, the entire balance is payable. If the client cancels the workshop up to 52 days from the workshop, 50% will be deducted, and from 21 days onward 100% will be deducted from any refund.

Refunds and amounts are at Ollie’s discretion, and in many circumstances, a replacement date or workshop will be offered; naturally, workshops offering accommodation are subject to booking fee’s and alternate dates may not be possible. All cancellations must be provided by the client in writing (email with read receipt excepted).  All workshops exclude travel to the actual location, course participants are responsible for their own flights, trains, ferries, and car journeys to the location specified upon booking.  The workshop will state whether travel is included to locations once undertaking the course.

Due to the nature of landscape photography, night photography, and landscape astrophotography, and the inability to control the natural elements, no refunds will be made for adverse weather to include heavy rain, flooding, earthquake, fire, sudden adverse wind conditions, or other severe conditions caused by nature that put safety at risk, or in the case of landscape astrophotography, cloud cover. This also extends to acts of human behaviour unforeseeable and beyond control. To include but not limited to; fire, nuclear disaster, terrorism, threats of war, civil strife and acts of unrest. Ollie will always try to leave days either side of course bookings to compensate for bad weather, however, this is not always possible.

In the event of Ollie Taylor becoming unable to attend due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances, another workshop leader of equal technical ability will take the course, a different date will be offered, or monies reimbursed in full.

PLEASE NOTE, TRAVEL & ACCOMMODATION WILL NOT BE REIMBURSED OUTSIDE OF THE WORKSHOP (UNLESS STATED AS PART OF A WORKSHOP AND ACCOMMODATION PACKAGE BOOKED BY OLLIE).

If you are travelling to the area especially for a workshop, we strongly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation insurance. Receipt of deposit does not guarantee acceptance on the requested workshop, this will be confirmed within one to two days via email. Ollie Taylor reserves the right to cancel any Twilight2Twilight workshop. An alternative workshop to the same value will be offered or the full monies paid to Ollie Taylor refunded. However Ollie Taylor will not cancel local workshops advertised as “Mixed group workshops” if they are under-booked, they will go ahead as a smaller group with tuition time scaled down accordingly.

Ollie Taylor reserves the right to change any prices indicated. If a deposit has been paid for a workshop during a price change, the client will pay the original price the workshop was advertised for, or the remainder balance reduced to suit any reduction.

Hours of tuition indicated will include any breaks required during the specified hours. For full-day packages breaks and travel from the shoot location to the office, or place of desk-based tuition, will be incorporated into the day/hourly rate (thus tutorial time may vary depending upon locations used, and number/length of breaks taken).

Ollie Taylor will endeavour to be as flexible as possible, in light of the nature the work, to ensure the course operates and there is a mixture of both field-based and desk-based tuition in cases where both are booked.  This may mean the course structure is altered from time to time during the duration of workshops. Where field-based work becomes impossible due to weather conditions, desk-based tuition will still go ahead regardless with the option of extended theory.

It is a term of contract between Ollie Taylor and the clients that they must have adequate travel insurance in place. We also recommend you have adequate equipment insurance, an email disclaimer will be sent out to participants to be returned to Ollie and regarded as digital signature in light of equipment insurance.

Ollie Taylor may wish to use images taken of his workshops and clients in further marketing, website, and other promotional media; please contact Ollie Taylor in writing if a workshop is booked and there is an objection to image use.

Under 16’s may only book on a workshop with a responsible adult accompanying them, with all correspondence going through the responsible adult.

Ollie is fully insured with full public liability insurance to cover photographic workshops both foreign and domestic, however, it is down to participants to provide adequate travel and equipment insurance for themselves.
