Photographers attending a photoshoot are solely responsible for providing their own equipment and ensuring that this is suitable and in working order for the planned shoots.

Adventure Always shall provide the wedding photography photoshoot on the booked date(s).
We shall provide models for the shoots, arrange the styling and organise the location. We give photographers a structure / timeline for the day and photographers will typically take photographs in pairs or small groups. No tuition is provided.
It should be noted that the actual set up and logistics for the shoots are subject to change, including itineraries and timings. The output may be subject to variables beyond our control including, but not limited to, factors relating to the weather, location, venue, lighting restrictions or scheduling complications.
We reserve the right to substitute models from those shown in our advertising. The availability of a model for shooting is not guaranteed.
6 - INSURANCE
Adventure Always recommends that photographers take out their own insurance to cover equipment damage and appropriate travel insurance to cover themselves and their equipment whilst on the photoshoot. We shall not be liable for any damage to equipment, personal injury, delays or any other circumstances which are beyond our control.

Under these Regulations consumers have up to 14 days (starting after the day in which you entered the agreement) to cancel the contract, unless the photoshoot you have booked commences within that 14 day period. If you book a photoshoot that commences within 14 days, the Regulations will not apply and you will therefore be giving up your right to cancel.
Bookings made by businesses rather than individual consumers will be deemed to amount to a business to business transaction in respect of which the Regulations will not apply. You will therefore be liable to pay the full course fee if you cancel before the date of the photoshoot.
