Below we answer all your questions about attending a photography workshop or conference. Should you have a question that is not answered on this page, feel free to contact me at [email protected].
Our photography workshops and seminars are designed to provide you as much information as possible to assist you in your photographic journey and improve your skills with your camera and with post-processing.
PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP FAQ
“What skill level is required for workshops?” We welcome all levels of photographers to our workshops and seminars, however, if you have questions regarding your personal level and if the event is a “good fit”, feel free to contact me at [email protected] prior to registration.
“Does it matter what type of camera I have?” Not really. While most of our attendees have digital SLR’s, point and shoots and even phones are welcome. Our goal is to help you get the best results possible. If you are not comfortable with changing settings on your camera, it is always wise to bring the camera manual with you since every camera’s settings are slightly different.
“How many people are in your photography workshops?” This varies depending on the type of event, but the general maximums are 6-8 for travel workshops and 6-12 for half/full day workshops (depending on space/location). Our Barns & Back Roads Workshops are limited to 3 people per session due to parking limitations (car-pooling mandatory for this event).
“How soon should I sign up for an event?” Spaces are on a first-come, first-paid basis, so you should sign up as soon as you know you want to attend an event. We cannot hold spaces without payment. Should a workshop become full, please email me to be placed on a waiting list.
“How do I register for an event?” All registrations are processed through our website in the “Peacock Studio”. Some travel workshops will have the option to pay a deposit with the balance due by a set date; shorter events need to be paid in full at time of registration. You can use a credit or debit card through PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account).
“What happens if it rains?” We cannot predict what Mother Nature will do, but we will try to rearrange the itinerary to accommodate the weather. There are no refunds due to weather unless we cancel the entire workshop (see below regarding trip insurance).
“Are meals, accommodations, etc., included in the workshop?” Some of our travel workshops include a welcome dinner and admission to various locations. Accommodations and travel are not included (unless otherwise specified). Please read the details for the particular event to see what is included.
Please note – ALL attendees to a photography workshop or seminar are required to sign a waiver form. There are some locations that may also require a location release. Meredith Images has full business insurance coverage.
TRAVEL WORKSHOPS (Multi-Day)
Refunds will be given if cancellation is made prior to 90 days before the workshop/tour start date minus a $250 processing fee. No refunds will be given if cancellation is made less than 90 days prior to the start of the workshop unless we can fill your spot ($250 processing fee still applies).
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND TRIP INSURANCE to protect you from an unexpected emergency that prevents you from attending the workshop. We also encourage participants to purchase refundable airline tickets. We reserve the right to cancel any photography workshops if our minimum enrollment is not met. In the event we cancel a workshop, participants will receive a full refund or funds may be used towards a future event (to be used within one year of the original event date). We are not, however, liable for expenses incurred such as airfare or accommodations, thus the reason we recommend the purchase of trip insurance.
HALF DAY/FULL DAY WORKSHOPS
There are no refunds on single day workshops. You may transfer your registration to another person for a $50 processing fee or receive a credit for a future event (to be used within one year of original event date). Should Meredith Images need to cancel an event you will receive a full refund.
CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY CONFERENCE (virtual events)
As this is an online event with access to recordings for 60 days after the event, there are no refunds allowed on virtual events.
