Commercial Filming & Photography

You must schedule at least two weeks in advance so that a member of the Zoo team can accompany you during your visit. The Zoo reserves the right to determine acceptable requests and appropriate photo and film uses of the Zoo’s facilities, animals and staff based on the safety and dignity of the wildlife collection, visitor impact, pre-existing partnerships, and the overall image of the Zoo. Please email us, including specific details of your request and your affiliation.

Photo Shoots

Due to staffing limitations and the time required for photo shoots, the Central Florida Zoo is ONLY able to accommodate photo shoot requests for events taking place at the Zoo and already scheduled with our Private Events Coordinator (details here). This includes requests for photo shoots for engagements, birthdays, graduations, etc.

Student Projects

For students conducting interview, photo, or video projects, the Central Florida Zoo requires at least two weeks advance notice. It is up to the discretion of the Zoo to accommodate the student’s needs. We will try our best to accommodate the request, however, depending on staff availability, we may deny access to student journalists due to the availability of our small staff.  Not all requests can be approved. Please email us, detailing your project, your school, and the due date of your project. Please allow at least two weeks for requests to be processed.
