Protect Your Trip
Travel insurance isn’t just for medical assistance. There are several plans available to protect both you AND your belongings. We highly encourage you to obtain Travel Insurance immediately after booking your workshop with us! This is the best plan of action for coverage for lost, damaged and stolen luggage and belongings. It is also wise to include coverage that replaces lost prescriptions and travel documents while you’re on your journey.

All workshop fees can be paid by check made out to “Perfect Light”. All card transactions for final payments will be charged a 3.5% processing fee. There will be a fee affixed for late payments.

Schedules All workshop schedules are tentative (subjects, events, and times). Itineraries are subject to change without prior notice due to weather and other environmental conditions, direct or indirect logistical arrangements, transportation plans, health conditions of workshop participants and/or instructors, employees, or assigns, and/or any other factors deemed to be relevant by Perfect Light Workshops.

Equipment: It is the responsibility of each participant to bring and provide his or her own equipment. Workshop participants will be given a list of suggested items to bring, but it is a suggested list only and does not replace personal preferences and for one’s possibly limited resources or health restrictions. We will attempt to have camera and accessory manufacturer’s demo products on hand for workshop participants to try and use. However, we make no promises as to the availability of any demo equipment.
