Crown Point on back of Canon 5D MKIIHow to sign up for a workshop or tour

Join the fun!

Unless otherwise noted on the individual workshop pages, sign up is as below.

To sign up, be sure to visit the Policies and Payment page and read the payment and cancellation policies.
Send an email to confirm space availability.
Preferred payment is by check. There is a discount for paying by check or money order - see specific workshop/tour page  for discount amount. If you want to pay the deposit one way and the balance another, I will adjust invoices to reflect a prorated addition or subtraction of any discounts.

Send either your deposit of $200 ($1000 for international trips) per person or payment in full to:

Rod Barbee
172 Robin Lane
Port Ludlow, WA 98365

And you have the time and inclination, would you mind filling out a pre-trip questionnaire? This will help me in planning what to cover during the trip. This is totally optional. Here's the link: Pre-workshop/tour Questionnaire.

Pay with PayPal

About Travel Insurance

We strongly urge you to purchase trip insurance and have assembled a few sources here. We have no affiliation with any of these companies.

About traveling spouses/companions

For domestic workshops, non-photographing spouses and companions are more than welcome at any of our workshops with no extra costs other than those associated with park admission fees or guide fees. Occasionally we won't be able to accommodate traveling companions in all activities due to space constraints.
For international trips, traveling spouses will be subject to the full cost of the tour or workshop.

About Lodging

Unless otherwise noted in the individual workshop or tour write up, you, the participant, will make your own hotel reservations. I'll pick a hotel and arrange group rates and will provide, upon registering for the workshop, the group name so that you can call the hotel and make your reservations.
This way, if you want to arrive early or stay on after the workshop, you can more easily make those arrangements.

About Transportation

With the exception of major tours (Iceland, for instance), or unless otherwise indicated in the workshop or tour write up, transportation during the trip is the responsibility of the participant. During workshops we highly encourage and will facilitate carpooling.
