All Photographers who record images, recordings or other media for distribution as a mass-produced commercial product (for sale), or who will use any such recording for public consumption in a wide-spread broadcast, print or other form of communication, in order to create sales (magazines, media outlets etc.) will require a filming permit from BC Parks. This permit should be requested prior to July 1, 2018. Small-scale/local media may request permits using the same process until September 21, 2018.
At no time are amateur photographers permitted to enter the river, its tributaries or other wetted areas to record the spawning of salmon.
As a professional media/broadcaster, there are specific requirements for you to visit, photograph, and interact with the natural environment at Tsútswecw Provincial Park (Roderick Haig-Brown).
For further information on Media and Photos taken in the park please contact the following:

You must apply for a media permit to conduct professional activities in the park. This permit is available from BC Parks area Supervisor Wes DeArmond. To contact Wes, please email him at [email protected]
Once a permit has been reviewed and issued, it will be forwarded to The Adams River Salmon Society. Upon receipt a Media Pass will be created and HELD FOR YOU AT THE MEMBERSHIP TABLE IN THE SOUVENIR TENT. All members of your party MUST have this media pass on them at all times. If requested, you must be able to produce this permit.
Once on site, you should identify yourself to The Adams River Salmon Society Site Supervisor or via staff at the Cabin. This allows us to know you are on-site and manage any public inquiries regarding your activities.

You CAN be requested to stop filming, if you violate the following protocols:
As a media / professional you are not required to pay admission fees during your time at the Park.
However, you must produce the permit at the entry booth, and be in possession of your media equipment. If you are simply on a visit, you are expected to pay access fees, like any other visitor, to support the work of the Society to educate the public on salmon and ecosystem resources.
