Refund Policy:

Workshops & Class Cancellations, because we rely on student attendance in order to schedule instructors, book essential travel arrangements, acquire permits and arrange lodging, we MUST adhere to the following policies for all attendees. There are NO EXCEPTIONS.

  • If for any reason you need to withdraw from a workshop, please notify McKay Photography Academy immediately.
  • No refund is available for withdrawal, no matter the reason.
  • McKay Photography Academy is not responsible for cancellations due to medical emergencies.
  • McKay Photography Academy is not responsible for cancellations or trip date changes due to any event outside of our control such as labor disturbances, shut downs, etc. If that was to happen, a trip would be rescheduled and you would not have to pay again. However, travel arrangements are on your own expense. Trip Insurance can help cover this.
  • In the unlikely event that a class or workshop is cancelled by McKay Photography Academy, all fees may be refunded in full or may be transferred to another workshop that is scheduled within 12 months of cancellation.
  • In the event of a class or workshop cancellation, McKay Photography Academy is not responsible for reimbursement of any travel, lodging, equipment rental or any other related expenses.
  • We recommend purchasing travel insurance to cover any non-refundable registration fees, travel, lodging, equipment rental or any other related expenses.
