Photo and videography shoots
Photography during an event rental is allowed provided all safety requirements are met as outlined in the terms and conditions of your agreement. You are entitled to all noncommercial rights for the photographs and videos made of your event. If your photographer requires extensive set up or you require time outside that allowed for your event then extra charges might apply.
For rental of the Castle specifically for photography or videography, we have a base rental price starting as low as $300/hour but our packages are fully customizable. This does not include access to areas behind barriers, which requires direct supervision from the Curatorial staff and additional charges will apply. All photography and videography rentals must occur AFTER museum hours as it is too disruptive to the museum flow.
