Media Permits

Posed and Commercial Photography Film and Videography

All photographers (professional or amateur) who conduct posed photography are required to obtain a permit. Nature photography is welcome without a permit. Any photos taken at Dodge Nature Center intended for sale or publication will require permission with an applicable fee. Photography is not allowed on Dodge’s Shepard Farm location at this time, but it will be an option in the future as the expansion opens more features.

Please apply for your permit in advance to avoid an additional fee. Your submission is pending approval and we will contact you over the next business days. Businesses with more than one photographer, must pay $10 (annually) for each additional person. Permits must be carried with you during your media sessions at Dodge Nature Center. Natural resources and farms are not to be damaged, altered, or tampered with during your media session. Gates must stay closed and barns cannot be entered.

Permit Fees:
One Day Permit $50
Annual Permit $150
Additional fee for permits purchased less than two weeks in advance of photo shoot $25

The media permit includes access to the following nature destinations:
