Agency efforts to clarify the permiting process for commercial filming and photography
Under the Department of the Interior the BLM, the USDA, the USFWS and the NPS have taken different approaches to educating people on commercial filming and photography on public lands. The BLM has created a webpage to educate those conducting commercial filming and photography on all BLM lands. On the other hand, the NPS, the USFWS and the USDA have separate webpages for individual national forests, parks and wildlife refuges.
