Group Courses and Workshops ("group course/s")
The group course cost includes the tuition fee and catering arrangements as stated in the group course brochure. All other expenses are the responsibility of the group course participants.
Travel & Transport
All participants are responsible for making their own way to group courses. Transport during group courses will be provided as detailed in our promotional material.
To secure your place in a group course we require full payment at the time of booking. If for any reason you need to cancel your participation in a group course please notify us at least 14 days before the start. At that time, we will refund your group course payment less a $20 cancellation/administration fee. If notification of cancellation is made less than 14 days before the start of a workshop, we will retain the group course fee (unless the vacant spot can be filled). PhotoSkills reserve the right to cancel any group course with inadequate enrolment up to 7 days beforehand. In the event that a group course is cancelled due to inadequate enrolment, all fees and deposits paid are refunded in full or transferred to an alternative group course within 3 months of the transfer.
Cancelled Group Courses
PhotoSkills will endeavour to ensure that all scheduled courses go ahead but reserves the right to cancel any group course for any reason whatsoever, including too few participants or logistical problems such as strikes, wars, acts of God, or any other circumstances, which may make operation of the group course inadvisable. All group course payments, which were received, will be promptly refunded. This refund will be the limit of PhotoSkills liability. PhotoSkills is not responsible for any expenses or damages incurred by group course participants as a consequence of any cancellation, such as costs expended in preparing for the course including special clothing, lost income, accommodation and travel bookings or any other course-related losses or expenses.
Our group courses may be undertaken by anyone in reasonably good physical condition. During our group courses you will be doing some walking up and down stairs, photographing outside including walking and carrying photo equipment. Please call us if you have any questions about your ability to do a particular course. Once a course has started and it is necessary for you to leave because it is beyond your physical level, please note that there will be no refunds for any unused portion of the course.
You must be in generally good health and it is vital that persons with medical problems make them known to us well before the group course begins. It is understood that PhotoSkills is not a medical facility and therefore has no expertise or responsibility regarding your particular medical situation. PhotoSkills assumes no liability regarding provision of medical care.
