On-grounds Photography Guidelines
While the zoo encourages visitors to take photos for personal use, location permits are required when using the zoo’s unique assets as a backdrop for formal, posed photography—including for events such as weddings, prom, graduation, and professional family photo shoots.
Commercial Film and Photography
Lincoln Park Zoo is happy to consider requests to film a commercial, television show, or movie, or to use the zoo as a location for a print ad. The zoo is willing to assist in advertising and/or publicity needs of individuals and organizations within the community and throughout the nation
