Edgar Miller Images reserves the right to dismiss any participant in regards to poor conduct, safety and security without refund.
Health and Fitness: Each participant is expected to be in good health and fitness. Photo Expedition locations may be a combination of paved and unpaved paths, to high altitudes and/or rocky terrain. I want participants to be comfortable and safe so please assess your own health and fitness for a particular Photo Expedition. Please contact me with any questions regarding concerns about specific physical activities and your health.
Guests/Tag-alongs: We have a no tag-along policy. Spouses, family members, friends, etc. who are traveling with you and who have not registered are unable to join in any group functions and ride in the provided transportation. The Photo Expedition is also not a location for pets and they are not allowed with the exception of guide dogs. However, guests will be able to join you for any Non-Photo Expedition activities such as meals or breaks if we are not on location.
Travel Insurance: While not required, travel insurance is strongly recommended. It may protect you in the event of an unexpected situation that prevents you from attending your purchased Photo Expedition tour.
