Generally, permits are not required for visitors using cameras and/or recording devices for their own personal use. News coverage NEVER requires a permit, for either filming or still photography, but is subject to time, place and manner restrictions, if warranted, to maintain order and ensure the safety of the public and the media, and to protect natural and cultural resources.
