Photo and Video Policy

The Trustees of Reservations reserves the right, and may give permission to its designated photographers and videographers, or to outside media, to photograph or video visitors and program participants at all its facilities and properties. These photos and videos are for promotional purposes and may be used in future publications, marketing, and media communications.

By utilizing Trustees properties or by participating in Trustees programs and events, you consent to the taking and publication of your photograph and video for these purposes. If we have used a photo or video of you that you would prefer not to have used, please contact us by email at marketing@thetrustees.org requesting that we remove the image, and we will be happy to take the photo or video down from our website and not use the photo in future print publications. Please be sure to fully describe the page and image, so we can identify it correctly.

Formal portraits, event photography, and any other commissioned photography require prior written permission from The Trustees. Permission requests may be sent to marketing@thetrustees.org. Please allow 3 weeks for the review and consideration of all permission requests. Same day requests will not be considered or approved.

Drone usage is allowed at some reservations, on a very limited, monitored basis. Drone users must check in with Trustees staff before being allowed to fly, and to find out any specific regulations for that day at that property. Drones must be used within eyesight of the operator at all times, not fly over private property, and avoid disturbance of protected habitats, animals, or other visitors.
