About the workshop:
The workshop with will start with an evening shoot in Seattle photographing the impressive night sky in the Emerald City. Tom will then guide you around the very best photography spots in the surrounding countryside. The Olympic National Park has an amazing variety of views from the peaks of the Olympic Mountains in amongst the clouds to gushing waterfalls down to the valleys. Within the park we’ll discover the brilliant shades of green of the canopy of the ancient Hoh Rainforest and the picture perfect La Push beach with surrounding sea stacks.
Our next stop will be Oregon on the way to the spectacular Columbia Gorge. At Silver Falls State Park you’ll notice a dramatic change in scenery as the forest floor becomes carpet of ferns, mosses and wildflowers. Mt. Rainier National Park brings a completely different scene with alpine wildflower meadows surrounding the mountains and lakes.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
