    Refund less a $40 cancellation fee.
  • If the workshop is cancelled due to weather or sky conditions, you will receive a full refund.
  • Once the workshop starts, refunds cannot be issued. I make every attempt to insure sky conditions are ideal for these workshops. I monitor weather forecasts from several sources, astronomical sky forecasts, live web cams, etc. Conditions can change without warning and in an instant - especially in the mountains. If conditions change once we are at the shooting venue, I offer participants credit towards future workshops.

This will be a photography packed workshop where we'll visit four historic abandoned schoolhouses. The last schoolhouse will feature a full moon rising over the schoolhouse, sunset and blue hour photography.
Please note: There will be approximately 15 miles of well graded gravel road on this workshop.
