Request for Clarity and Consistency in National Park Photo Rules

The rules about when a permit is needed to photograph in National Parks remains unclear. Even most park rangers have their own interpretation of the rules.

Despite attempts to clarify the rules and various legislative activities, the problems remain. But NPPA, ASMP, and others are are working together with the National Park Service to develop regulations that are "practical and fair to everyone involved."
