Refund and Cancellation Policies


It's important for members to be aware of the refund policies for Creative Vision Photography Workshops which are outlined below. Any questions regarding these policies please contact David Haupt at .

1. There are clearly stated Refund and Cancellation Policies that are built into each paid workshop/tour:



For ALL paid workshops and events, we offer a refund policy. You have the ability to cancel any workshop 48 hours or more from the start of the workshop and receive a refund. However, due to the nature of Meetup, we must charge a 10% handling fee. This is due to Meetup charging us on payment and we're required to pay that fee even if you cancel. You may always pay by check and if you do, that full amount will be refunded.

In order to receive a refund, you must email Dave at and ask for the refund for it to be processed, it will not automatically be processed if you only remove yourself from the event/workshop. No refunds will be issued after the event has been held.


A travel photography workshop consists of any workshop with at least one overnight stay.

  • For cancellations received at least 60 days prior to the workshop start date: CVPW refunds any tuition paid, less a $50 processing fee.
  • For cancellations received 30 to 60 days prior to the start of the workshop: CVPW refunds any tuition paid less the tuition deposit (if applicable).
  • For cancellations received within 30 days prior to the start of the workshop: CVPW retains full tuition.
  • For cancellations after the workshop is in progress: CVPW retains full tuition.
  • For no-shows: CVPW retains full tuition.
  • Refunds will be processed within 30 days after our office receives notice of cancellation.

Note: Workshop content may change from that advertised based on weather, access to shooting locations, and other unforeseen situations. Whenever possible, registered students will be notified ahead of time of any changes. CVPW reserves the right to cancel any program that does not meet minimum participant requirements, in which case participants will be informed as soon as possible and all money will be refunded. CVPW is not responsible for any losses incurred as a result of a course cancellation. We encourage participants to purchase refundable airline tickets and consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance.


LOW ENROLLMENT: If a workshop has insufficient enrollment to run, we reserve the right to cancel the workshop AT ANY TIME prior to the start of the workshop. If this happens, you will be notified by email and reimbursed in full. Usually if a minimum number is required for a workshop, that is communicated in the workshop listing.

WEATHER: In the case of inclement weather, we will notify all members who have RSVP'd for said workshop/outing at our earliest possible time to reschedule. If it is a paid workshop, workshop fee will be refunded in full.

2. Members who do not attend events or stay active within this Meetup group may be removed after several months of inactivity. 

3. Members are required to keep their RSVP's up-to-date. For large outings with large waitlists, it is imperative that people who have RSVP'd yes but do not plan to attend to remove themselves from the list. This is to give those on the wait list a chance to attend the outing. YOU MUST REMOVE YOURSELF AT LEAST 12 HOURS BEFORE THE EVENT IF YOU DO NOT PLAN TO ATTEND.

4. "No-shows" may be removed from events or this Meetup group at the Organizer's discretion.

5. One of the important reasons for our group is to get together with fellow photographers to shoot pictures and increase your photographic knowledge and abilities. Any inappropriate interactions will not be tolerated. We want everyone to have fun and feel welcome. If this is not the case, please forward any concerns to David Haupt at 

Thanks to all of you we so appreciate your interaction and contribution to this group!
