Terms and Conditions of Photography Courses from Glenn Bennett Photography.
Glenn Bennett Photography is a trading name of Glenn Bennett.
The Photography practical outings will be conducted by Glenn Bennett, an experienced outdoor leader. Details of necessary food, clothing, footwear and equipment will be provided. All clients must bring a packed lunch/snacks, hot drink, appropriate clothing, footwear, a change of clothing and a rucksack to carry them in. It will be necessary for clients to arrange their own food, accommodation and transport for the course. I can supply information about local accommodation if required.
2. Confirmation of Booking and Payment.
Clients may reserve their place on a course by sending a completed Booking Form. A deposit of 50% of the activity cost is required at the time of booking, with the balance due 4 weeks prior to the course date. If you are booking an event with less than 4 weeks notice then full payment is required at time of booking. No contract shall exist until receipt of the booking form and payment has been confirmed. Booking forms may be obtained on request - by e-mail, or by using the Contact form.
If I have to cancel an activity, you will be entitled to a full refund, or to choose an alternative date. However, clients will be responsible for their own expenses, including travel costs and so on, in this event. Should you cancel your booking, you must do so in writing - a cancellation will not take effect until that written notice is received. If you cancel more than 28 days before the course, you may be charged a 20% administration fee. For a cancellation made within 28 days of the course date, I reserve the right to make no refund. Clients are recommended to take out appropriate holiday cancellation insurance.
4. Participation, and the conduct of clients.
All Glenn Bennett Photography practical courses take place in the outdoors, and outdoor activities carry with them a danger of personal injury or death. The hazards may arise from terrain, weather, water, equipment, other people or wildlife. Clients should be aware of and accept these risks, and take responsibility for their own actions and involvement. It is important that all participants abide by any safety requirements that Glenn Bennett Photography may consider necessary. I reserve the right to change, limit or cancel activities because of weather conditions, or if I have reservations about any client's ability, equipment, behavior or physical condition. In such circumstances an alternative will be offered, but no refund can be given. If you are in any doubt about any aspect of your clothing or equipment, physical fitness, or ability, please consult me before you decide to make a booking.
Glenn is covered by full public liability insurance, but clients are recommended to take out appropriate personal accident insurance for their course. If you already have insurance, please check that it covers you for mountain walking.
6. Health, Fitness and Medical.
Clients must have a level of fitness appropriate for the course which they are booking. You must inform me at the time of booking, or as soon as the case arises, of any medical or other condition that might affect you or any other participant's safety and enjoyment. If you do not declare any such conditions on the booking form, I reserve the right to refuse your participation in the activity. All medical details will be treated in the strictest confidence. If in doubt, please play it safe and let me know.
All courses and activities take place in the outdoors, where the weather can be unpredictable and severe, even during the summer. The weather can limit what it is possible to do, and client safety is my main priority. There may be occasions where we are unable to complete a planned course because of the prevailing weather. In these circumstances I will try to offer an alternative, but regret that no refunds can be given.
8. Young People.
Young people (persons under 18) may only take part in Photography outings by prior arrangement with me, and must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.
Payment may be made by crossed cheque made payable to "Glenn Bennett". BACS details will be supplied with our invoice. Proof of postage of remittances is not considered proof of receipt, and clients are advised to send payment by any method affording proof of delivery. Payment terms are strictly net 28 days (four weeks) unless agreed in advance and in writing. Overdue accounts will then be charged 5% per week on all money owed.
These booking conditions will form part of the contract between you and Glenn Bennett Photography. They shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law, being subject to the jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales. No variation shall be of any effect, unless in writing, and with the agreement of Glenn Bennett.
