Photo/Film/Video Permit Form - KC Parks and Rec

Photo/Film/Video Permit Form

Do I need a permit? A permit is required for still and video commercial shoots and professional photographers who are conducting business on public property. If the photos are for a permitted event in the park, no additional Photo/Film permit is required. If you are shooting for personal use, you do not need a permit. You will need a permit if your shooting will impact others and/or the environment or if you are using the public space in a special/different way than it is intended (ie. as a studio or set).  Permit fees and insurance needs will be determined upon review of the completed request form.

If you are requesting a  permit for a photo shoot in Shoal Creek Living History Museum in Hodge Park, please complete the form on their web page.

Per City of Kansas City, Missouri Ordinance 50-163, business cannot be conducted on Park or City property without a permit from the appropriate Board.
