Terms and conditions
Lightstalkers Scotland is the trading name of Glen Campbell Photography .
The following terms and conditions shall apply in respect of all UK and overseas based photographic workshop & tour bookings made through Lightstalkers Scotland and Glen Campbell and will form the basis of your contract with Glen Campbell Photography.
NEW COVID 19 BOOKING CONDITIONS as of September 15th 2020
- To offer peace of mind all new bookings received from the 15th May 2020 for trips starting after 15th October 2020 until April 2021 will have fully refundable deposits. This will apply up until 30 days prior to the trips start date when the balance will be due. This will be refundable up until 14 days to the start of your trip. After 14 days the balance can be used as credit towards the rescheduled trip or a future trip.
- The safety of all my guests is a priority. Therefore everyone is asked to comply with safety measures to ensure their comfort and safety and that of their fellow participants as a condition of booking.
- For UK based trips you’ll have the option to “tag along” in your own vehicle or travel with myself between locations.
- All future trips will have venues assessed that they comply with current hygiene and safety practices that are in place. These will also be adopted by our group and full consideration will always be given to such safety measures implemented in the region of travel while they apply.
- Minimal contact and interaction with other members of the public has always been my preference as much as practically possible while on location. Seeking out the best locations and maintaining this practice will remain my goal. If you would like more details on any of these measures or other information please don’t hesitate to contact me, thanks.
