Workshop Terms & Conditions


  • Payment must be made in full when booking a workshop (an invoice will be provided).
  • All workshop prices exclude the cost of entry into any private venue or land.
  • All clients participate at their own risk and Valerie Mather Photography accepts no responsibility for injury or damage done to their persons or property.
  • The type of workshops offered by Valerie Mather Photography requires flexibility and must allow for alternatives. For this reason, the outline itinerary and workshop description must be taken as an indication of what may take place on the workshop, and not as a contractual obligation on the part of Valerie Mather Photography. Please note that any itinerary noted on the workshop description is subject to change due to weather conditions and/or the capability of participants.
  • It is the responsibility of the client to inform Valerie Mather Photography whether it is necessary to make any special arrangements as regards care or assistance with regard to the client or any individuals in the client’s party.
  • Please note that neither Valerie Mather or any of her employees are equipped or trained to deal with a medical emergency or to provide care and assistance in the event of an emergency. If you have any medical condition which may need emergency treatment, then you must disclose this at the time of booking to enable Valerie Mather Photography to make an assessment as to whether you can be safely accommodated on a workshop.
  • A date for the delivery of a 1:1 workshop, including those arising out of a gift voucher, must be booked and attended by the client within six months of payment for such workshop being received by Valerie Mather Photography. Clients who fail to book and/or attend a 1:1 workshop within six months of the said date will no longer be eligible to attend the workshop with Valerie Mather Photography. No refunds will be given in such circumstances.
  • In the event that I am unable to deliver a workshop due to illness or other circumstances beyond my control then the workshop will be postponed and an alternative date offered to the participants.
  • If you, the client, cancel a booking any money you have paid is non-refundable. If I cancel a booking any payment received by me will be refunded in full, save where an alternative date is offered to the participants within six months of the date of the cancelled workshop.
  • Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions, I regret I cannot accept any liability or pay any compensation where the performance or prompt performance of my obligations under my contract with the client is prevented or affected by, or you otherwise suffer any damage, loss or expense of any nature as a result of “force majeure”. In these booking conditions “force majeure” means any event which I or the supplier of the services in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include, (whether actual or threatened), war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, strike, a natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire, epidemic/pandemic, fuel shortages and all other events outside my control.
  • Please note, I cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss, expense or other sum(s) of any description (1) which on the basis of the information given to me by you concerning your booking prior to me accepting it, I could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur if I breached the contract with you or (2) which did not result from any breach of contract or other fault by myself or where I am responsible for them, my suppliers. Additionally, I cannot accept any liability for any business losses.
  • I do not accept responsibility or liability for death, bodily injury or illness caused to you during the workshop, unless arising from the negligent act and / or omission on my part or on the part of any of my employees (providing they were acting within the course of their employment).
  • By booking a workshop with Valerie Mather Photography you are agreeing to accept all of the above conditions. The person who completes the booking does so on behalf of all the individuals included on it, (including the beneficiaries of any gift voucher) so that all are bound by the booking conditions.
