The U.S. Forest Service just announced plans to finalize fees for commercial photography and filming in wilderness areas . Under the regulations, which are already in place on a temporary basis, amateur photography is allowable, as is photography in support of “breaking news” – but if you are a monetized blogger, a reporter working on a feature , or are otherwise planning on earning a penny as a result of a photograph or video you take in a designated wilderness area, it will cost up to $1,500 for approval and a permit. Failure to comply could see you slapped with a $1,000 fine.
