Cancellation or Change of a Workshop

While Matthew Félix will make every attempt to hold an event once confirmed, Matthew does reserve the right to cancel or change a program (class, seminar, workshop, other event or activity), at any time due to insufficient bookings and/or reasons beyond his control. In such case, a full and immediate refund will be issued. However, the financial liability of Matthew Félix shall be limited to the amount paid to Matthew Félix for the program only and shall not be extended to cover any other associated travel costs incurred (e.g. non-refundable air tickets, miscellaneous transportation costs, etc.). Matthew reserves the right to refuse acceptance of any participant, for any reason at any time. Matthew is not responsible for any additional expenses incurred by such participants.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Matthew understands that attending workshops requires advance commitment, and also that things can happen in life that may require you to cancel attendance at a workshop. Based on cancellation date, the following apply:

  • Greater than 90 days before workshop start date: full refund of any payments made.

  • 90-30 days before workshop start date: 50% refund of any payments made.

  • Within 30 days of the start of the workshop: no refund.

Refunds will be paid by the same method that the original payment was made. 

Note that there are some non-refundable workshops for which the above terms do not apply. For these workshops Matthew does not offer under any circumstances a refund of any payments made. This will always be noted clearly in the workshop description.

No matter when you cancel, if Matthew is able to fill your space in the workshop, he will provide a 100% refund of any payments made.

By registering with Matthew Félix, participants agree to allow their images to be used in such photography; participants who prefer that their image not be used are asked to notify Matthew prior to or at the commencement of a workshop or other event or activity.
