Once a workshop fee has been paid in full, no refunds will be given. If you wish to cancel your booking, we will grant you a credit in the amount of the fee paid which can be used towards another workshop run exclusively by BlueHour Photo Ventures (not towards a photo tour). If you wish to opt out of a workshop but want to switch to a different one, you can do this by logging into your reservation and opting to “transfer.” You can transfer your ticket to another person, or to another workshop for a $10 fee. Cancellations in return for future workshop credit can be made up to one week before the workshop date, for all workshops that are two days in length or shorter. Any credit granted will be considered expired after one year from the date of issue.

In the event that you do not attend a workshop and do not provide advance notice (a “no-show”), we will consider your registration to be forfeit, and receive no credit.

Workshops are conducted rain or shine, unless a determination has been made in an emergency or other event rendering the workshop unsafe or impossible. In this case, registrations are provided full refunds.


Our policies may seem somewhat strict, but this is due to the fact that many of our workshop locations require permits or reservations to be purchased in advance, and we have a limited number of spots available for each workshop.

For our photo tours that are conducted in conjunction with one of our tour company partners, we adhere to the terms and conditions of the particular tour company regarding deposits, cancellations, and refunds.
