All attendees agree to provide a contact mobile number and details of an emergency contact for use (if required) during the walk. This information will not be used for any other purpose. All contact information will be kept securely (in either digital or paper form) for 21 days before being disposed of.

Start times are as stated on the information page - Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your event is scheduled to start. If you miss the start, there is no guarantee we can come back to meet you. If you think you will be late, please let me know.

Please make sure your camera/phone is fully charged and that you have spare batteries/SD cards where required. Feel free to bring any kit you are happy to carry and use. Tripods are not necessary but please feel free to bring one.

As events take place in public areas, please remain courteous at all times. If using tripods or leaving bags on the ground, please be wary of those around you and leave items in a safe place away from any pathways.

Anyone behaving in a way that endangers or causes distress for myself, other attendees or members of the public will be asked to leave and no refund provided. You will also be barred from all future events. Events are designed to be friendly, educational and fun.

Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions and relevant terrain. Each photography walk is approx. 5KM so please ensure you are happy and fit to walk this distance before booking.

Refreshments are not provided but please feel free to bring your own.

As some walk locations are a little off the beaten track, toilet facilities aren't guaranteed to be available. Please ensure you are comfortable before attending the start of a walk.

Smoking and vaping is discouraged, if you must smoke/vape, please do so away from other attendees.

You are responsible for your own safety, well being and possessions at all times during an event. Although fully insured, due to the nature of the walking terrain, Jon Clifton Photography will accept NO liability for injury, accident or loss that may occur during an event. As such, please ensure you have the correct level of insurance to suit your needs as all claims must be settled directly with your insurer.

All attendees (including chaperones) are required to pay the full attendance fee.

Photographs and/or film of attendees will be taken during the event.

If for any reason you wish for an image of yourself to be removed or not used in this way, please let me know or contact me directly.

Gift vouchers are available to purchase with a validity of 12 months.
To redeem, please email your desired walk and voucher code.

Please note that some events carry an external fee above the value of the voucher.

If you wish to redeem a voucher for an event that carries an additional fee, priority is given to website sales first.
Please be quick to redeem as/or before sales open to avoid disappointment.

PHOTO HUNT RULES & GUIDANCE

Teams can consist of 1-4 people

There is a minimum requirement of three teams per hunt - in the event of not enough teams booking, the hunt will be cancelled (with no less than 24 hours notice) and a full refund provided.

Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult

At the start of the event, each team will be given a printed list of approximately 40 items to hunt, find and photograph.

Each item will have points allocated to it. The winning team will be the team that has accumulated the most points at the end of the hunt.

There is a time limit of two hours.

Teams are required to stay together for the duration of the hunt.

All teams must return to the meeting point at the end of the hunt.

Images will be randomly checked at the end of a hunt.

In the event of inclement weather during a hunt - it will continue. Therefore, please ensure you are prepared for all weathers.

While I'd like you to think a little outside the box, cheating of any kind will not be tolerated.

 Prizes are awarded to the winning team and runners up. Main prizes will either be camera equipment or local use gift vouchers. Runners up will receive boxes/bags of sweets. Calendars/and books will be awarded at the discretion of the organiser. No cash alternative is offered or available.

In the event of a photo hunt tie, the organiser will select one item from the list provided and judge each teams photo of that item. The judges/organisers decision is final and no conversation will be entered into.
