What to expect

The workshop is suitable for participants of all levels of experience in photography. Most locations will be readily accessible from the road, although we may hike short distances on occasion.

This event focuses on landscape + outdoor + night photography but may possibly include a short portrait component. Talks will be focused primarily on the technical, artistic, and compositional process of creating strong images.

What to Bring

This will be a "rain or shine" event. Weather in July on Prince Edward Island is generally beautiful but there is, of course, the chance of rain storms, wind, bugs, and hot, hot sun. Please come prepared, accordingly, for all weather conditions.

Packing List:

• suitable and comfortable clothing, which you can layer

• warm jacket (for late night photoshoots)

• appropriate footwear (we will be in wet, rocky, and possibly muddy areas)

• a headlamp or flashlight (we will be in pre-dawn darkness for one morning)

• your own camera equipment (preferably DSLR, which allows manual control of shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings; bring the fastest lens you have)

• a sturdy tripod

• a laptop for editing (with editing software, preferably Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop)

LEAVE NO TRACE

Both Dave and Paul preach and live the ethics of "leave no trace" photography, which means that the utmost care is given, while hiking and photographing, to leaving zero impact on the natural environment. Participants are expected to approach this tour with the same ethics at all times.

Cancellation and Insurance Policy

CANCELLATION: Spots are non-refundable but are transferable, with the exception of a $250 administration fee. For instance, we will provide a refund, minus the administration fee, if the participant is able to find someone else to take his or her spot and can sell/transfer the spot to a new participant. Please contact us at erin@offbeatphoto.ca to make arrangements.

Although extremely unlikely, OFFBEAT Photography Inc. reserves the right to cancel the tour at any time for a variety of reasons (i.e. if a minimum number of participants is not met or if unforeseen circumstances dramatically impacted cost of the tour or global conditions somehow warranted a cancellation). In the very unlikely event of a cancellation, all monies/deposits made to OFFBEAT Photography Inc. would be refunded to participants, however, no compensation would be made for participant flight cancellation fees or any other associated travel costs. See Insurance Policy for more details.

INSURANCE: It is not only advised but required that workshop participants have trip cancellation/interruption insurance, as well as emergency medical/illness insurance and rescue coverage (proof required within 4 months of departure).

Weather and other unforeseen factors can cause delays in travel, particularly from some of our more remote locations. It is the participant’s responsibility to cover any costs in the case of a travel delay of any length. Please ensure your trip cancellation/interruption insurance accommodates this possibility.

By purchasing a spot you are acknowledging that you accept these conditions.
