Transportation to and from workshop origination point are not included. Participants are responsible for ground transportation. Car pooling is encouraged.
Lodging recommendations shall be provided upon receipt of deposit and registration. However, participants may make any lodging choice they desire. Note: some workshops include lodging. See specific workshop details for more information.
Unless otherwise indicated, meals are not included in the price of the workshop. Participants are encouraged to carry breakfast bars, snacks and water during photo shoots. Meals are available at or near our lodging facilities.

Participants shall be responsible for their dietary needs.
