Filming or Photography Permits at Parks

Miami is a great place to work and play. Our parks and beaches attract many to use our facilities for photography and film. It is important to remember that we have rules and ordinances surrounding such activities.

Non-Commercial Photo Shoots at Miami-Dade Parks


  • Non-Commercial photo shoots are identified as photos being taken by local photographers for weddings, baby pictures and the like, that will not be published in magazines, books, advertisements or on the internet.
  • Commercial photo shoots still require a film permit and the appropriate fees.



 Photographers, taking Non-Commercial photo shoots, will be required to:

  • Follow the approved PROS registration process to be placed on the Parks Vendor List (i.e. bounce house vendors).
  • The approved County Fee applies for a one year period ($250.00).
  • Photographers, taking non-commercial pictures, will not be charged additional fees unless they utilize props, which can restrict access to the location they are working in. If this is the case, the appropriate open area fee may be charged. 
  • Registered photographers will be the only vendors approved to be in our facilities. 
  • An informational flier will be sent to you shortly with instructions on how the vendors can register. 
  • Registered Photographers will be required to contact the Park Office to inform them of their scheduled photo shoot.
