Photography and filming in the Gallery
We encourage visitors to capture their favourite works and memories of visiting our exhibitions on display; however we have a few important conditions to be aware of.
You may take photographs with hand-held cameras for personal use only. The use of tripods, selfie sticks, external stabilising devices or other camera attachments, flash or additional lighting is not permitted without the permission of the Gallery. A request must be made and granted before such equipment can be used in any gallery spaces.
Any images taken should not be reproduced or displayed on personal websites and must not be sold commercially or displayed publicly in any way that disrespects the subjects in the artworks or causes offence to any individuals or groups.
Look out for the ‘no photography’ icon indicating objects, exhibitions or events that cannot be filmed or photographed. This restriction may be for cultural reasons, due to copyright law, privacy, or to protect the people or objects involved.
To request permission for your photography or filming, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow at least five working days for a response. Filming and photography is not always possible, and may incur a fee
Wedding or engagement shoots
The Gallery does not allow wedding or engagement photography to take place inside the building unless you have hired the venue for a wedding reception or ceremony. Find out more about venue hire here.
