Payment and Cancellation Policies

Unless otherwise specified, lodging, food, transportation and other items not explicitly mentioned are not included in the workshop  or class price.

In order to provide the best learning environment possible we keep our class and workshop sizes limited to 8-14 people (depending on the class/workshop).  This is why we depend on you to attend your chosen class or workshop once you have registered for it.

Refund Policy

We do not provide cash refunds.  We can allow you to transfer to another class if you meet the guidelines set out in the Transfers section below.

We can give no refunds or transfer credit if:

  • you do not show up for your registered course and have not provided us the appropriate notification
  • sickness, family emergencies or weather events prevent you from attending some or all of a class or workshop
  • you register for a course beyond or below your skill or ability level


Edmonton based classes

For our Edmonton classes, transfers are limited to one transfer to either the same class at a later date, or a different class of equal value or lesser value. Should you require a transfer to a more expensive class, you will have to pay the transfer fee plus the difference in cost plus any applicable taxes.  We require at least 5 DAYS written notice (prior to the start of the class) in order to make such a transfer (email notice is acceptable). A transfer MUST be applied to the next available class. IF you choose to transfer to a different class, your transfer Credit must be used within 6 months . A fee (plus GST) based on the table below will be applied to all transfers.

Photography Workshops outside of Edmonton

For our Wildlife Photography workshops, we require at least 14 days written notice (prior to the start of the workshop) of your cancellation in order to transfer your fee to another workshop.  

Fees for transfers of Edmonton based classes if applicable

Transfer Fees are based on event pricing:

  • Tuition of $199 and below, the transfer fee is $25
  • Tuition of $200 to $499, the transfer fee is $50
  • Tuition of $500 and above, the transfer fee is 20% of the class fee

Course Cancellation by the BSOP

Occasionally, we may have to cancel a course due to low enrollment. In this case, we will issue a full refund of all monies paid to the BSOP up to that time.

Instructor Replacement

In the event that a listed instructor is unable to participate because of a change in his or her professional schedule, we will replace the instructor with someone of equal or similar credentials. If we cannot find a replacement in due time before the course is about to start, a particular class may have to be rescheduled.


In the event that we cancel your course, for any reason, the extent of our liability is limited to the return of all monies paid. We will do everything we can to register you in another equivalent course. We will not be responsible for reimbursement of travel expenses of any kind.
