Photography at Glen Eyrie

The beautiful setting of Glen Eyrie is the perfect backdrop for memorable photos. Since we are primarily a conference center, we limit access to our grounds in consideration of groups who are guests on the property. 

If you desire to conduct a photo shoot at Glen Eyrie, we will make a reservation if your requested time does not conflict with any other scheduled activities. The photography fee is $150 per hour. We will ask you to fill out a form with your information and submit it to our Reservations Department. Once approved, you will come to the property, pay the fee and sign a waiver. Then you’ll receive a lanyard which will indicate that you have permission to take photos on the grounds. Your reservation includes only outdoor locations on Glen Eyrie, and does not grant admittance to the Castle. The use of drones is also not included in this agreement.
