Photographer Permit Application

The Arboretum is a popular, much loved landscape for photographers. Casual photography of your visit for personal use is welcome. However, if you are coming to the Arboretum for the sole purpose of taking posed photographs, a permit is required.

A permit is required for all formal posed photography. This includes individual and family, engagement, wedding, prom, holiday card, graduation, senior photos and the like. ​

The Friends of the Glen Rock Arboretum is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 Tax Exempt organization. We depend on volunteers, memberships and contributions to maintain and preserve the Arboretum. As such, we charge a small fee for the photography permit. Fees:

Commercial Photography: Photography that is used to help sell, advertise or market a product, service, person or persons. $50.00 per two-hour session
Portrait Photography: Pictures by a professional photographer of individuals or groups. $25.00 per two-hour session
