Refunds are dealt with on a case by case basis, please contact us if you are not entirely happy with your order. In the event of a physical product, refunds are considered but not guaranteed.

ARTWORK (Physical Goods) – In the event of a faulty artwork, we will assist in providing you a replacement product under Australian Consumer Law standards. A refund on artwork will be offered only in the circumstance where an original artwork shipped to you is not opened, touched, tampered with, or damaged in any way, and the artwork and it’s complete intact packaging is returned to us undamaged or unopened at the expense of the purchaser.

WORKSHOPS (Services and other Digital Goods) – To secure your booking, we require payment in full. Any balances you leave unpaid due Any special agreement between us and you, that leave an unpaid balance within 30 days of the workshops, must be paid in full. If we do not receive your payment within 48 hours of this 30 day window and no response to our attempts of contact has been made on your behalf, we reserve the right to cancel your place on the workshop and no refund will be issued. In other words, unless you book directly online and pay upfront, and in the case where we make an arrangement for you to pay another way, you must pay for your booking prior to 30 days out from the actual workshop date

If for any reason you need to cancel your participation in a workshop, please notify us at least 30 days before the start of your photo workshop.  At that time, you will be charged a $120 cancellation fee and the remaining amount will be refunded in the form of a Steve Rutherford Photo Workshop Certificate (valid for 12 months only).  If notification of your cancellation is made less than 30 days before the start of a photo workshop, we will retain the full amount already paid.  No cash refunds will be given and no refund of any fees will be made for withdrawal after the photo workshop begins. We highly recommend you take out travel insurance for your trip.

Steve Rutherford Enterprises reserves the right to cancel any workshop with inadequate enrolment 14 days beforehand.  In the event that a photo tour has to be cancelled due to inadequate enrolment, all fees and deposits paid are refunded in full or transferred to an alternative photo workshop within 12 months of the original tour. No fees will be charged in this situation.
