Payment in full is due at the time of booking. (For full day sessions, a 50% deposit is required at time of booking, with the remaining balance due one month before the start of the session.)

Half Day and Full Day Sessions need to be booked a minimum of 3 days in advance.

Camera Practice, Lightroom, and Image Review Sessions need to be booked a minimum of 2 days in advance.

You can cancel any session for no charge within 24 hours of making your booking (provided your booking is not within one week of your session.) After this 24 hour period, there are no refunds.

If you are unable to make it to your scheduled session, the booking can be switched to a future available date or you may transfer your booking to another person or a gift certificate that is valid for one year. Any changes made within one week of the session will be subject to a $75 change fee. [Note: this policy does not apply to multi-day workshops. See full workshop policies at this link.]

In the unlikely event that Glacier Photo Guides needs to cancel your booked session, you will receive a full refund or can change to an alternate available date at no charge.

For Sessions in Glacier national Park:

Please note that the park entrance fee is not included in our pricing. You are responsible for your entrance fee to the park. More details can be found on Glacier National Park's website here.

Anyone participating in a Full Day or Half Day Session must agree to abide by all National Park Service rules and regulations pertaining to visitors of Glacier National Park. This includes:

  • Paying the park entrance fee (see above).

  • Staying on designated trails to avoid trampling vegetation. No off trail use is permitted during our photo sessions.

  • Not approaching or harassing wildlife in any way.

  • Following any posted trail/area closures or reroutes.

weather & mountain conditions:

Weather in the mountains is always unpredictable, but sessions will run, rain or shine. In fact, some of the best photos are often made in 'bad' weather. Please come prepared for every possible condition- Montana is known for experiencing all four seasons in a single day. To aid in planning, please check current conditions on Glacier National Park's website here.

Due to the fact that weather in the mountains is unpredictable in all seasons, we cannot guarantee ideal conditions for every session. When you make a booking please understand that weather and current conditions will determine the types of photographic opportunities available. We are not able to offer refunds based on the weather, but we will do everything within our power to give you the very best experience possible. Although we can't control the weather, we can promise to make the most out of whatever conditions we encounter, to increase your photographic knowledge and landscape photography skills.
