A permit is necessary for any professional photographer interested in shooting on City property within the City limits of Roswell. Photography to be used by the photographer for solely personal and/or noncommercial purposes does not require a permit.
The type of permit required depends on the scope of the photography shoot. Portrait/Scenic Photography Permits are required for any professional photography lasting less than 2 hours and requiring less than 10 minutes of set-up or tear down time. This permit can be purchased as a one-time permit for those that do not regularly shoot in Roswell or an annual permit for those that do. The one-time permit is good for one session up to two hours and costs $50. The annual permit is good for one year from the date issued and costs $100. All shoots covered under the annual permit may not be more than two hours.
Photography on the front porch is not allowed during tour hours. If Benches or rockers are moved they must be placed back as found. For scheduling large group photos, contact Pam Billingsley (770-992-1731 ext 2).
