Liability Waiver

For this document, Mike MacDonald Photography, Inc. will be known as "Company."

Please carefully read this document as evidence of your concurrence. Each individual participating in a Company class or workshop must agree to the contents of this form as part the registration process. Participants under the age of majority in their home state must have this agreement acknowledged by a parent or guardian.

I am aware that the courses and activities of the Company's program in which I am participating present certain risks including, but not limited to, bodily injury, death, illness, loss or damage to personal property, and other safety-related dangers. I further understand that outdoor courses present inherent risks of personal injury or sickness, such as falling or tripping, Lyme disease and West Nile virus, forces of nature such as lightning strikes, travel by automobile or other conveyance.

I understand these risks, recognize that these dangers cannot be eliminated, and acknowledge other dangers not mentioned may also exist. I understand the physical requirements of participation in these activities and affirm I meet these requirements, and that my physical and mental health is good, and that I am not under a doctor's care for any condition that might endanger other participants or me. I understand that instructors may not possess the required training or equipment to handle incidents that may occur. In case of injury, accident, illness, or my inability to complete these activities, I will bear the full cost of any additional transportation or evacuation procedures performed by Company or others.

I certify that I am voluntarily participating in these activities and assume all risks, consequences, and potential liability for this participation. I hereby release Company, its employees, staff, instructors, volunteers, and representatives, as well as, Illinois Dept. of Natural Resources, forest preserve districts of the Illinois counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will, and all other land managers where these activities occur from any and all liability claims, causes of action, debts, and demands that may arise as a result of my participation in these activities. In the event that a lawsuit is filed, I agree to do so only in the county of DuPage in the state of Illinois and further agree that the substantive law of the state shall apply in that action without regard to the conflict of the rules of that state. This document shall also serve as a release and assumption of risk for my heirs, personal representatives, executors, administrators, and members of my family. Company reserves the right to cancel or change activities without prior notice, and reserves the right to cancel the registration of any participant it determines fails to meet the requirements of these activities. I have had sufficient time to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and agree to be bound by its terms.

SHOOTING CONDITIONS: Company schedules its events months in advance and does its best to predict the best times and conditions for photography. However, I understand and stipulate that Mother Nature is unpredictable and that it is impossible for Company to truly know what will happen. Therefore, I agree to hold Company harmless if conditions do not meet my expections. This includes, but is not limited to, weather, light, and growing conditions, rain, drought, lack of blooming, minimal color, lack water flow, and so forth.

PHOTOS: I shall allow Company the right to use photographs taken of me taking part in its classes, outings, or events as part of its advertising and promotional campaigns including websites, brochures, etc. without reimbursement.

MAILING LISTS & PRIVACY: I shall allow Company to place me on its mailing list and contact list to receive future news and/or promotions. I, at any time, may inform Company to remove me from its mailing list and Company. Company will not sell or share any of my personal information to any other party unless I agree.

As a parent or guardian of participant(s), I acknowledge reading this form and agree to all the provisions above. In addition to the above release and assumption of risk, I also give my permission for instructors, staff, volunteers, and emergency personnel to make necessary first aid decisions in the event of an accident, injury, or illness to the above named participant.
