Small-scale filming and photography application

Wedding photography and speculative work generally falls into the small-scale filming category.

Small-scale filming is filming or photography that involves a maximum of one camera operator and one assistant; requires only low level equipment use (i.e. backpackable equipment; single tripod); does not use structures, film sets or professional talent; does not include the use of drones; does not exclude an area from use by other users, and has negligible potential to impact on a park environment.

  • Small scale filming and photography permits are valid for a period of one year from the date of commencement.
  • There is no fee for the small scale filming and photography permit.
  • Filming and photographic activities other than small-scale activities require approval as per the Filming and Photography Policy and Procedures 2010, and are not covered by a small-scale filming and photography permit.
  • Small scale filming and photography permits do not cover the use of drones within NSW National Parks.
