256 Shades of Gray Photography workshop Liability Waiver

I acknowledge and accept that as a participant in a 256, LLC [dba 256 Shades of Gray, and hereafter referred to as 256 Shades of Gray] photography workshop, tour, class, private or group instruction, or private or group guided tour [ hereafter collectively referred to as Workshop]; I take full responsibility for my behavior, well-being, and health throughout the Workshop, which may involve a variety of activities, unfamiliar locations, walking for a longer period of time than I am used to, physical exertion for which I may not be prepared, and weather extremes subject to sudden and unexpected change. I further acknowledge and accept that the Workshop may involve walking through unfamiliar, narrow, unpaved and/or steep paths, busy sidewalks, bridges, roads, stairways and driveways, and transportation in a variety of vehicles including but not limited to cars, vans, motor coaches, and watercraft. I knowingly and willfully accept all risks associated with a 256 Shades of Gray Workshop and agree to hold neither 256 Shades of Gray, its officers, agents, representatives, employees or Workshop leaders [hereafter referred to as “Staff”] liable in any way should any harm come to me.

I acknowledge that the enjoyment and excitement of the proposed form of Workshop is derived in part from the inherent risks incurred by travel and activity beyond the accepted safety of life at home or work, and these inherent risks contribute to such enjoyment and excitement, being a reason for my participation. I agree that if I suffer injury or illness, 256 Shades of Gray or its Staff can, at my cost, arrange any medical treatment and emergency evacuation service as it or they deem necessary for my health and safety. Further, I agree that at all times during the tour, I will abide by and comply with any additional instructions given by the Workshop leader or any other Staff and accept that non-compliance may result in injury, death or permanent disability. I understand that non-compliance may result in my removal from the Workshop.

By booking a 256 Shades of Gray photography workshop, tour, class, private or group instruction, or private or group guided tour, I enter into this Liability Waiver, and am not relying on any oral, written, visual representations or statements by 256 Shades of Gray or its Staff or any other inducement or coercion to take part in a Workshop. I confirm that, by my own free will, I have read and understand the Terms and Conditions of the Liability Waiver and agree that this Liability Waiver will be binding upon my heirs, beneficiaries, next of kin, executors, administrators and successors now and in the future. I further acknowledge that I am at least 18 years of age and that I may legally enter into this contract.

In addition, I agree to grant 256 Shades of Gray to a worldwide, royalty-free license to use my photographic, video, or digital likeness solely for promotional and educational purposes.

This Liability Waiver supersedes any other agreements or representations by or between the parties and is governed by the laws of the State of Utah and is intended to be interpreted as broadly as possible.  I agree that exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any legal action shall be in the State of Utah Superior or District Court in Washington County or the United States District Court for the District of Utah.  If any part of this agreement is determined to be unenforceable, all other parts shall be given full force and effect.
