Jackie Kramer Photography, LLC (JKP)
Assumption of Risk, Waiver, and Release of Liability
By signing up for this Workshop,I agree to the terms and conditions as outlined herein.
I understand that I am responsible for booking my own hotel room and am strongly encouraged to do so as early as possible. Hotels usually have a limited number of rooms that are part of the group block.
Airfare or Travel to Workshop, Retreat, or Tour (Workshop):
I understand that I am responsible for travel to the Workshop and that it is advisable to arrange to arrive at least one day before the Workshop begins. (In fact, you may wish to arrive early or stay afterwards and spend time exploring on your own. There is something for everyone at all locations!)
Transportation during Workshop:
I understand that I am required to provide my own transportation to and from selected sites for photography.
Itinerary & Participants:
Weather and other circumstances outside of our control may call for a change in plans. Every effort will be made to visit all shooting locations just prior to the workshop to determine whether any changes to our destinations or schedule are necessary.
A minimum number must be reached for this workshop to go forward. A maximum number has been set but may be exceeded by up to three participants at the discretion of JKP.
All workshops and tours must be paid in full at time of registration unless otherwise specified on the registration form
Cancellations and Refunds:
If an extreme event such as widespread illness, weather, war, unrest, or other act of God, affects this workshop, JKP will do their best to reschedule or modify the trip (date and/or location) if it is determined to be in the best interest of participants. In that situation, JKP is not responsible for any costs or expenses, such as airfare, visas, or any other costs associated with planning for this trip. I have been advised to purchase comprehensive travel insurance and check to make sure I am fully covered if I so wish, not only for airfare and lodging, but also registration fees.
If I find myself in a situation where I must cancel participation in the Workshop, JKP will do their best to find a replacement, in which case a full refund will be issued less a $250 transfer fee.
Because unanticipated circumstances can occur, I recognize that it is advisable to purchase insurance. I understand that many policies require purchase of coverage within 14 days of booking or registration. I acknowledge the potential to secure multiple policies if I desire coverage for airfare, lodging, medical emergencies, registration fees, and/or camera equipment.
Many companies offer a variety of coverage. Squaremouth is a resource which offers quotes, reviews, comparisons, and links to various providers. https://www.squaremouth.com/
I knowingly assume all risks of injury, illness, death, loss or damage or malfunction to any property and equipment used in the Workshop.
I acknowledge that I am an adult over the age of 18 and that I am voluntarily participating in the Workshop. I hereby waive any and all claims and release and discharge JKP from any and all liability, including negligence. My assumption of risk and my grant of this waiver and release includes, but is not limited to, illness, bodily injury damage, theft and/or loss of personal property during the Workshop or which occurs as a result of my participation in the Workshop.
I agree not to hold JKP responsible for any incidents or accidents that may occur in transport, in any shooting location, or any other establishment. That includes, but is not limited to delays, injury, loss or damage of camera gear or other property. I assume full responsibility for all personal items, computers, baggage, and camera gear at all times and will adhere to all airline and government rules and restrictions to avert any problems or interference with the Workshop.
I acknowledge that I may encounter natural hazards in the Workshop including such things as traversing uneven paths, carrying equipment and photographing in hot weather or rain. Specifically, I acknowledge that I may encounter natural hazards in parking lots or gardens, and other phenomena and objects over which JKP has no control.
Right to Refuse Service:
JKP retains the right to refuse service to any individual at any time before or during the Workshop. This may be due to personality conflicts, complaints from other workshop participants, or health and safety concerns. It is the responsibility of the participant to physically remove him/herself from the Workshop immediately upon being informed. JKP is not accountable for any financial hardship this causes.
I understand and acknowledge that while JKP will employ measures to ensure I am protected from Covid-19 and related variants, as well as any other potential contagious illnesses, I voluntarily assume the risk of illness in my decision to travel and participate in the Workshop. I agree to abide by all applicable health advisories and executive orders locally in effect at the time of the Workshop, as well as the conditions set out by JKP.
I agree to conduct a Covid self-test the morning of the first day of the Retreat and again if at any time during the Workshop, it is requested by JKP. I agree to provide photos of any and all negative tests to JKP. I will remove myself from the Retreat if I begin to experience any symptoms OF ANY POTENTIALLY CONTAGIOUS ILLNESS, NOT JUST COVID.
I grant permission to JKP to use any quotes and images for promotional materials.
