Commercial Filming and Photography Permits

All commercial filming and photography requires a permit and is subject to fees. In addition, special permission must be obtained to film certain items, locations, and people that are not property of and/or under control of the National Park Service, even though they are associated with Sitka National Historical Park.
These include, but are not limited to the following:
  • the Russian Orthodox Church's chapel in the Russian Bishop's House
  • cultural items owned by local native groups which are on loan for display in the Visitor Center
  • all items, employees, and artists associated with the Southeast Alaska Cultural Center
The documents listed below contain the information you need to understand the commercial filming guidelines in Sitka National Historical Park. Please read them carefully and follow the instructions for submitting an application.

If the information included in the application is sufficient, you will be sent a copy of the permit along with separate general terms and permit conditions. You will then need to return the completed signed permit and conditions. Please allow 30 days for processing.
