By making a booking and / or attending any course, workshop or service with Photo Genius you agree to have read and understood the following terms and conditions.

Paying for your photography course, workshop or private tuition session in full upon booking (including using a gift voucher) is confirmation of your attendance. If you have to cancel your booking then we will be happy to offer a place on another course/workshop or a refund providing that we are given at least 6 days notice. No refunds are possible for cancellations made within 6 days of the course date or for no-shows.
Please note that all refunds are made via PayPal and may be subject to a PayPal commission charge.


Photo Genius (and our tutors) are not responsible for any photography equipment or belongings that may be damaged, lost or stolen during any course, workshop or private tuition session. Attendees are responsible for their own equipment as well as their safety and the safety of others within the group. By booking and attending any course, workshop or One-to-One session you accept full responsibility for your own safety and agree that Photo Genius, Paul Farris or any Photo Genius tutors will not be liable for any injury, damages or losses at any time. 

Photo Genius reserves the right to take photographic, (both still and video) records during any of its courses & workshops which may be used for promotional purposes, submissions, advertising and records.

Cancellation policy
Photo Genius reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any photography course or workshop due to bad weather, tutor illness or inadequate enrolment. In the case of cancellations refunds will be made available upon request (with the exception of cancellation due to poor weather.)
All refunds transactions are made via PayPal.

Wet weather policy

If a course or workshop has to be cancelled due to bad weather then participants may choose to attend another course/workshop at a later date as listed on our website. Sorry but we are unable to offer refunds on courses or workshops cancelled or re-scheduled due to bad weather.


Gift vouchers are valid for 12 months from the purchase date and are redeemable against any Photo Genius course, workshop or private tuition within that period.

Vouchers are not redeemable for cash or refundable. The voucher expires 12 months from the date of issue and it is up to the recipient to use the full value of the voucher before the expiry date. Cash, credit or vouchers will not be given for any unused balance.


If the course / workshop (or One-to-One tuition) you wish to attend exceeds the voucher value then the recipient must make up the difference with another payment method.
