Opportunities for photography are endless. Numerous historic structures and ruins scatter the island. Sunrise at the beach, sunset over the marsh, tangled vines connecting forest canopies to dappled forest floors, jumbles of Saw Palmetto, gnarled live oak limbs, either bare bones dead or filled with abundant plant life, various animals scurrying about, and interesting cultural and natural features, all provide excellent subjects for photos.
Commercial Filming & Photography
Commercial filming and photography are welcome at Cumberland Island National Seashore. These activities do require an approved permit that must be submitted and processed prior to filming or photographing. Visit the Photography and Filming Permits Page for more information and to download a permit.
