Photographers

Professional photographers are encouraged to sign up for a Little Sprout Membership under Business Membership. This will allow you, as the photographer, to use our grounds freely and allow your clients in at no charge to them. The gate fees are waived with your business membership.

As with most venues, there is an additional, yet reasonable, $50 photography and filming fee on top of the membership.  This is a one-time fee that can be paid at the same time as your membership. For the rest of the year you may have as many photo shoots as you desire.

Not interested in a business membership but still want to do a one-time photo shoot? Arb members with an Individual, Dual, or Dual+ membership may still conduct photo shoots at a $25 per shoot rate. This option is perfect for amateur photographers or those that want to take annual family photos on the grounds.

If you are a professional photographer and do not have any type of membership, you will be allowed to conduct a photo shoot at a $50 per shoot rate.

*Please note the use of drones are not allowed at the Northland Arboretum without prior approval and proof of permit.
