Additionally, for each Trip there is some inherent risk involved in traveling. The undersigned Client and ColorTexturePhotoTours, LLC hereby agree to these terms and conditions.

This policy can be enacted at any time prior to the Trip's departure.

Baggage and equipment is at the owner’s risk entirely, and it is the owner’s responsibility to make arrangements to convey said baggage and have it at the proper destination. All Clients are subject to this responsibility and risk upon bringing baggage and/or equipment on the Trip.
