Photography Policy

While on the grounds, visitors may be photographed by Fairchild photographers, and these images may be used for the purpose of promoting the Garden.

Visitor (Amateur) Photography
Visitors to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden are permitted to take photographs and shoot videos for personal use, except in specific exhibits where photography is not permitted. Personal photographs and videos are not to be used for commercial purposes. Professional photographers taking photos for engagements, quinces and other events must obtain a permit online or from the information desk at the Visitor Center. Wedding, engagement, quince, and portrait photography are subject to certain rules and restrictions.

Commercial Photography
Photographs and videos are not to be used for any commercial purposes without authorization. Professional photographers must contact the Special Events Department in advance before filming or photography of any kind. Projects will be approved on a case-by-case basis, and Fairchild reserves the right to refuse any project. Commercial photography will occasion fees. The Garden will not allow any implied or actual endorsement of a product, institution or ideology. Professional photographers taking photos for engagements, quinces and other events must obtain a permit online or from the information desk at the Visitor Center. The Special Events Department may be reached by contacting Anna Brickner at abrickner@fairchildgarden.org or 305.667.1651, ext. 3358 or Ashley Amarante at aamarante@fairchildgarden.org or 305.667.1651, ext. 3344.
