The City of Colorado Springs is considering charging commercial photographers $500 to take pictures at Garden of the Gods. A photo permit for all other parks excluding Garden of the Gods would be $250 annually.
Photographers tell us the proposed permit fee popped up out of nowhere and they want answers from the city.
Unfortunately, city officials can’t seem to get their story straight about this new commercial photography permit.
There are many unanswered questions:
What prompted the permit requirement?
How is the city planning to enforce it?
