DRWC hires professional photographers to photograph events, activities and landscapes along the waterfront for use by DRWC and other organizations.
By using DRWC locations, visitors allow DRWC to use their photos for informational and promotional materials. Visitors have a right to deny the photographer permission to take a photograph. Those visitors being photographes agree that the photographer owns the copyright in the photograph(s) and visitors claim no right to payment of any kind.
Photo permits are required for any professional or commercial photography. Permits are also required for any type of videography. Permits are available for all DRWC properties (Race Street Pier, Great Plaza at Penn's Landing, Festival Pier, Blue Cross RiverRink, Spruce Street Harbor Park, and Washington Avenue Green) for a nominal fee. For more information please contact DRWC.
