I think the issue would mainly arise if you are a commercial photographer - ie someone who makes a living via photography, for example, by publishing wilderness calendars.

I have yet to came a ranger who would give a photographer grief in a Nat Park unless they were doing some thing verboten - like being in a prohibited area. I think you are more likely to have problems after something is published than when taking a photograph.

Regards, Laurie.

It would be a little (to say the least) embarrassing and annoying to be innocently pursuing my very amateur photographic hobby in what I feel is a public place to suddenly find myself confronted by a NP officer (only doing what they are required to do) demanding evidence of my permit or,
alternatively, confiscating my equipment!

1/ Does anyone on this forum know the facts about these permits?

2/ Has anyone had any experiences connected with these permits?
