When a participant cancels a reserved spot in a workshop or fixed (non-custom) photo tour, it takes time and effort to fill the vacancy. Please be sure to check your personal schedule well ahead of the dates of a workshop or photo tour to make sure there are no conflicts. If you discover that you will not be able to attend a workshop we would very much appreciate knowing this as soon as possible.
Cancelling a Registration
If for any reason you need to withdraw, please notify us 60 days or more before the start date of your workshop or fixed photo tour.
No refund of any fees will be made for cancellations after the workshop/tour begins.
In the event that a workshop/tour must be cancelled due to inadequate enrollment, all registration fees received by us will be refunded in full or, if you prefer, your registration fees paid up to this point can be applied to another Photo Workshop, Custom Photo Tour, or Photo Instruction session.
DeYoung Photo Workshops is not responsible for reimbursement of non-refundable airline tickets or lodging arrangements you made in the event of a workshop cancellation. Please do not make any travel arrangements until you have received notification that the workshop/tour has met its minimal participant requirement which will be known at least 30 days prior to the start date OR consider the purchase of trip insurance.
Cancellations More Than 30 Days from Start Date
If your cancellation is received more than 30 days prior to the beginning of a workshop, we will refund your registration fee less a 5% (up to $50) cancellation fee. Any fees paid up to this point can be applied to another Photo Workshop, Custom Photo Tour, or Photo Instruction session.
Cancellations Less Than 30 Days from Start Date
As much as possible, we will try to work with you to accommodate any unforeseen changes and try to reschedule you into another workshop, photo tour, or custom instruction in the same calendar year without penalty. If that is not possible and your cancellation is received 30 days or less prior to the beginning of a workshop, we will retain the entire balance paid unless you are able to locate someone who will fill your position.
We highly suggest TravelGuard® or similar travel insurance policies to assist you in case of last minute plan changes and emergencies.
