Terms and Conditions
By using Devon Photography Training's website or purchasing, attending or using my blog, e-mails, videos, social media, workshops, products and/or services, from or related to Gemma Varney and Devon Photography Training, you are agreeing to accept all parts of this Disclaimer. Thus, if you do not agree to the disclaimer below, please stop now, and do not use my website, blog, e-mails, videos, social media, workshops, products or services or anything you have purchased or experienced through me (collectively “Website, Workshops, Products and Services”).

Payment Terms
Your session will not be confirmed until you have signed these terms and conditions and your session fee has been paid. If payment hasn't been received and the terms and conditions aren't signed within 3 days of your session date, I will assume you are not attending and your date will be open to other customers. If payment has been made but the terms and conditions not signed, your partaking in the session implies your agreement to the terms and conditions.

All worksheets, session plans and pre-session preparations are carried out once your session has been confirmed. Your session fee includes a £35 booking fee which is non-refundable if you cancel your session within 3 days of your session date. 

Directions to the Studio
The studio is based in Honiton. It is advised that you use Google Maps to plan your journey and to check the studio location. The postcode is EX14 1AG. 
You may get lucky with a space on the main road near the studio. If not, you can park in one of the car parks on New Street, there are three surrounding the Wetherspoons - The Star Inn. My studio is a 5 minute walk from there.

The Studio Address is:

31 King Street
EX14 1AG

Rescheduling will incur an additional £35 booking fee if required within 3 days of your original session date. Rescheduling is at the discretion of Gemma at Devon Photography Training and new sessions may be weeks away from the original date depending on availability.

If the session requires that Gemma stays in nearby accommodation in order to hold your session, the costs will be forwarded to the client at the time of booking. If the client reschedules the session, any accommodation costs resulting from rescheduling or cancelling the session will be the responsibility of the client. In the event that Gemma needs to reschedule or cancel prior to the session, Gemma will cover any costs incurred by rescheduling accommodation.

No Shows
If there are no communications to cancel the session before the session start time and the client does not show up within 30 minutes of the session start time, this will be considered a no show. Session fee refunds for client no shows will not be given, as that session time could have gone to someone else. On the day of the no show, clients can reschedule the same session by paying an additional 50% session fee plus the £35 rescheduling fee. 

If, on the very rare occasion, Gemma does not cancel or reschedule a session and then fails to turn up to a confirmed (paid for session) the client will be offered a 50% session fee refund and a rescheduled session OR a 100% session and booking fee refund. 

Refund Policy
Due to the nature of customized 1-2-1 training and photographic sessions I cannot offer any refunds for sessions that have taken place. Your Booking Fee is always Non Refundable as you pay to reserve your booking date when you book. Gemma is always open to constructive feedback should you have any concerns. Due to the nature of customized photographic media all sales are final. All products undergo vigorous inspection for quality control before delivery/collection. I am always open to any concerns you may have and encourage you to ask questions if you are unsure of anything.
