Information About Workshops
All workshops with Dawn Wilson Photography are designed to be fun, educational and professional. Each location has been scouted for comfort, ease of access and excellent photographic opportunities. All efforts will be made to provide workshop participants with the best opportunities to photograph wildlife and scenery. However, it is important to note that Mother Nature can be unpredictable, and that it is impossible for us to anticipate all or unforeseen conditions.
All workshops require two payments: a deposit and payment balance. The deposit is non-refundable within 60 days of trip departure date. Final payment due dates are approximately 45 days prior to departure. Full payment can be made at the time of registration. If cancellation is required on a trip paid in full, full payment will be refunded minus the trip deposit amount if cancellation is within 60 days of trip departure.
If for any reason a trip needs to be cancelled by Dawn Wilson, such as due to travel conditions or lack of registrants, participants will be notified within 60 days of trip departure date. If a trip is canceled by Dawn Wilson, all funds currently paid for the trip will be returned in full.
What should I expect once I register for a workshop?
You will receive a confirmation email with the registration form information. If you paid via PayPal, you will also receive an email confirming payment. Within two to three business days you will receive an email from Dawn Wilson welcoming you to our adventure along with additional instructions about the trip.
Will I be reminded about payment due dates?
Yes, Dawn Wilson will send you a payment reminder approximately a week before the due date of the trip balance.
What information will I receive before the workshop?
Approximately 30-45 days prior to the workshop, you will receive an email from Dawn Wilson with information about trip policies, equipment to bring, clothing, and travel information.
What does the workshop cost include?
All trips will have information on the specific workshop page regarding what is specifically included for that workshop. Typically all workshops include all instruction, lodging, ground transportation and meals at the workshop location. Workshop prices will not include transportation from participants' home to the workshop location, alcoholic beverages or personal items needed during the trip. Workshop prices are part of a package price and refunds will not be issued for unused services.
How many participants attend the workshops?
To keep trips small, agile and personal, participants are limited to no more than eight, including the instructor(s).
