We highly recommend that all workshop participants purchase trip cancellation insurance independently.
MPW reserves the right to cancel any trip for any reason whatsoever, including insufficient signup, logistical problems that may impede a workshop, hotel closures or acts of God. (We have never yet had to cancel a workshop.) Refund of all fees paid shall release MPW from any further liability. MPW is not responsible for any expenses incurred by workshop participants in preparing for a cancelled workshop. In the case of insufficient signup to make a workshop feasible, notice and refund will be sent 90 days prior to the workshop.
MPW guests are required to sign a waiver of liability releasing MPW from any damage and personal injury liability while participating in a workshop, tour or course. MPW will request a copy of your valid travel insurance, a requisite for each participant. Ideally, your travel insurance will cover personal medical expenses, personal liability, lost or stolen luggage, and damaged camera equipment.
The participation in any outdoor activity carries with it certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated, including, but not limited to, theft, loss or damage of personal property, bodily injury, illness, temporary or permanent disability, death, which may be caused by acts of nature, negligence or actions of others.
By registering in any Workshop, Tour, Course or other outdoor activities offered by MPW, you acknowledge that you are aware that such hazards, dangers, and risks, including those not mentioned herein, exist and cannot be eliminated. You also acknowledge other dangers and risks, known and unknown, may also exist. Your application shall serve as a release of our liability and a complete assumption of all risks by you, your heirs, personal representative or assigns.
You also acknowledge that you have assumed the responsibility to select an activity, among those proposed by MPW that is appropriate to your physical abilities and interests. You are personally responsible for being in sufficiently good health to undertake such activity. By accepting our Terms and Conditions, and by paying the deposit, you certify that you do not knowingly have any physical or other considerations of disability that would represent a risk for you or other participants.
We reserve the rights to request a doctor's statement of good health.
You acknowledge that in certain foreign, remote, wild and mountainous areas, medical services and facilities may not be readily available during all or part of the Workshop/Tour/Course, including medical care, the presence of physicians, and medication. You understand that instructors may not possess the required training or equipment to handle incidents that may occur. In the case of injury, accident, illness, or your inability to complete the Workshop/Tour/Course, you will bear the full cost of any additional transportation or evacuation procedures performed by MPW or others.
In consideration of, and as part of the payment for your registration in a Workshop, Tour, Course or any other activities that MPW or their assigns may be conducting, you for yourself, your family members and heirs, administrators, executors, successors, personal representatives or assigns, do hereby voluntarily release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue MPW, Cymon Taylor, their employees, assigns, independent contractors or anyone involved thereof, from any damages, liabilities, costs, injuries whether mental or physical, whether known or unknown.
