Q. What is the nearest airport?
A. Your best option is the Portland Airport (PDX), however you can occasionally find flights in and out of Eugene (EUG).
Q. What if I buy my seat, and then am unable to attend?
A. We understand that things happen, but unfortunately all payments made are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend, you are welcome to try and sell your seat but it is your responsibility. You can do this by posting on social media, in Facebook photography groups, or directly to our Facebook Page HERE. Once you have found someone to purchase your spot, please fill out the Seat Transfer Form.
Q. Why is there a ticket transfer fee?
A. Our workshops sell out quickly, and because of that, we are looking for committed buyers. Due to the extra admin time needed for follow up communication, processing payments, and invoicing, we need to charge a one time fee of $75. If you need to transfer your ticket, please fill out the form HERE.
Q. Can my spouse/partner/friend stay with me at the workshop?
A. Yes, but only if they plan to also attend the workshop. Spouses and Teams may also save 10% on their second ticket, but you must be able to prove you are one company. Purchase your first ticket, and an invoice will be sent for the second.
Q. Can I use the images I take for my portfolio?
A. Absolutely. That's the purpose of the shoots!
Q. Is there camping nearby?
A. Yes! Oregon has camping options everywhere. Check out the Oregon State Park website to search for a campsite.
Q. How many students will be there?
A. One day workshops will have 25 students. Week long workshops will have 30 students.
Q. What kind of weather should I plan for?
A. Oregon is unpredictable, even in the summer. It will be sunny one moment, and then a torrential downpour. Prepare for rain, bring a coat, and boots.
Q. How strenuous are the shoots?
A. We LOVE our epic landscapes, so please plan for light-moderate walks to get to each location. We promise it will be worth it!
Q. Can you accommodate my dietary restrictions?
A. TOTALLY! Meals will be like one big BBQ, or potluck. Pizza, lasagna, pasta, burgers etc, however we can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, gluten and dairy free diets. Please let us know ahead of time if you have additional restrictions.
Q. If I have to leave early, can I watch what I miss via Skype/Facetime?
A. Unfortunately we will be unable to accommodate this request.
Q. Are there carpooling options?
A. There will be a private Facebook group for the attendees to coordinate carpooling.
Q. I am not a professional photographer, should I still come?
A. Of course! This workshop is for anyone wanting to start, or grow their business. This is not a beginners course however, and general camera knowledge is necessary.
