I have been hitting State parks, local botanical gardens, and other sites of scenic interest for my photography. At some of these locations they talk about casual photography is ok but for professional or group photography they require a permit and somewhat excessive fee in my opinion. One of these places a local Japanese garden had a tripod ban but I was able to convince the front counter girl to let me in as I wasn't going to be in the way. First time I have seen a tripod ban at a location. I am a hobbyist photographer at the moment but I will shortly be attempting to sell some prints of my work on Etsy. I do not consider myself a pro or commercial photographer and in no way shape or form can I afford a $250 or $500 photographers fee as I am unemployed. Does anyone here have a similar situation that you wish to sell casually and have you run into fee issues or challenges? Also is the tripod ban common? Thanks in advance.
