Registration and Payment
Payment for workshops must be received in full at the time of registration. You will not be officially registered until your payment has been received. Payment may be made by credit card through the web site via Paypal or by check or money order made payable to David Akoubian.
We are relying on your attendance to make lodging arrangements and assignments, so if for ANY reason you need to withdraw, please notify us as soon as possible prior to the start date of the workshop. 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.
The photographers are not responsible for non-refundable costs associated with cancelled trips so it is recommended that you purchase travel insurance.
The workshop offers special rates for non-photographing guests that you may want to accompany you. Contact us for specific pricing on the workshop that you are interested in.
