Registration Information

Registration for the Summer/Fall 2016 Woodstock Photography Workshops is now open and space is available on a first come, first serve basis. The CPW staff is happy to assist and advise you on which Workshop/s may be best for you.

The primary way to register is through online registration, but you can also register by calling CPW at (845) 679-9957. Please note: payment must be made in full at the time of registration in order to reserve and confirm your place in class. At registration CPW also includes a non-refundable $40 registration / processing fee. In certain circumstances CPW will arrange a payment plan to help make your participation possible. Please contact us for more information.

Portfolio Reviews are required for placement in figure classes. Please send 10 jpeg files (no larger than 150 dpi at 4×5”), along with a one-page image script and your application to workshops@cpw.org. CPW will notify you of admission shortly. Figure class portfolio submissions may be sent prior to registration date.

Once we have received your completed registration and full payment, you will be sent a confirmation receipt. A few weeks before the workshop you will receive an email with details of the workshop and a list of what to bring to class. Most importantly, please contact CPW at any time if we can provide additional information or answer your questions: (845) 679 9957.

Once a Workshop is full, a waiting list is kept. You may request to be added to this list by sending your name, address, day and evening telephone numbers, fax, and/or e-mail with the name of the workshop you wish to enroll in. If and when an opening becomes available, CPW will notify you.

Refunds / Cancellations

Requests for refunds must be made in writing and dated. We must receive your request 21 days prior to the Workshop event to give you a full refund (minus $40 registration/processing fee). No refunds can be given after that date due to our obligations to Workshop artists/teachers. All approved refunds take up to four weeks to process.

CPW cannot be held responsible for refunds due to illness, personal emergency, unattended workshops/ “no-shows”, or events not under our control. Workshops are subject to cancellation due to under-enrollment and/or in the rare case that an instructor becomes unavailable. All registrants are notified at once of a substitute Workshop leader, new date, or a full credit/refund will be issued for all fees.

Member Discounts

All current CPW members benefit from the discounted tuition for every Workshop (discount does not apply to lab/model/ material fees). CPW members receive an additional 10% off  member’s tuition rate for each additional Workshop they enroll in of equal or lesser value. This discount will be applied retroactively once you’ve registered.

If you are not already a member, when you register you may become a member by going to the membership page on our website.; include the category and fee with registration form to take the members’ discounts immediately.

The Registration Fee of $40 is included in the tuition and is non-refundable. If you have already registered for a workshop, please consult your confirmation letter for the “discount code” to  apply when registering for future workshops in the same calendar year.
