Photography and Video

Due to it's setting terrain and costumed visitors, Fantasy Forest is known to be a very photogenic festival.

Therefor, we encourage our visitors and photographers to make plenty of images, both static and moving and share with the world. In order for everyone to enjoy the festival equally, a photography and video policy is in place. Please respect the following


The use of photo and/or videos cameras is allowed on the festival terrain with the exception of professional equipment, for which you must have obtained written permission prior to the festival. This includes the following:

  • Press photography and recordings
  • Photographers and/or videographers of bands/special guests

Written permission does not grant access to any prohibited areas. If any extra access is required, these will be judged upon applying.

We encourage all photographers and regular visitors to capture the wonderful realm of Fantasy Forest and share it on the internet.

The usage of drones over the festival terrain is strictly prohibited by UK law.


A camera does not grant you the right to break the rules. Always respect your surroundings, the venue and gardens.

Be polite to both your subject and fellow photographers. If someone does not want to be recorded, please respect their decision no matter how beautiful their costume is.

Their costumes took many hours to make, respect their hard work and provide them with a business card or other information on how to obtain the images.

Don't ever touch the models without their consent and respect their personal space.

Do not block any paths longer than 30 seconds.


When possible, state the name of the model in your picture.

It is prohibited to ask any money when providing images.

It is prohibited to sell or use your images in any commercial way without the consent from both the model and the organisation of Fantasy Forest.

Fantasy Forest has the right to use any images made at the festival. If you wish to see your images on our social media, don't hesitate to send them to jurrien@fantasyforest.co.uk

Always do as instructed by the Fantasy Forest crew / Purple shirts.
