Photographers of of every skill level are welcome.

_IGP1993PARTICIPATION: Participation in the Sandhills Weekend Photo Shoot is limited to members of Fontenelle Forest Photography Club and their immediate family.

MEALS: Participants are encouraged to carry breakfast bars, snacks and water during photo shoots. Meals are available at or near our lodging facilities however our primary objective is photography, not meals, and often the best light is at breakfast and dinner time. Many people find a two-meal routine (e.g. a late breakfast after a sunrise shoot and either an early or late dinner before or after a sunset shoot), supplemented with breakfast bars and snacks, works well during workshops. Participants shall be responsible for their dietary needs.

ITINERARY CHANGES: We reserve the right to make changes to the published itinerary. Most changes are made to accommodate changing weather and lighting conditions and are intended to maximize the participants’ photography experience.

HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS: Participants must be in good general health. Though the pace will be relaxed and the distances relatively short, participants must be capable of hiking up to one mile round-trip over uneven rocky terrain while carrying their gear.

_MG_2900LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: Participants, as a condition of participation, shall release and discharge Fontenelle Forest and Fontenelle Forest Photography Club and its members, officers, employees, instructors, agents, directors, representatives, and assigns from any and all liability, even if that liability arises out of negligence and/or carelessness on the part of the persons or entities mentioned above. Assumption of risk, waiver and release of liability, including negligence, encompasses, but is not limited to  death, bodily injury, illness, damage, theft and/or loss of personal property during said workshop which occurs as a result of anything during the entire workshop.
