There is a $6 camera fee per camera (including cell phones) when visiting Taos Pueblo (which is optional). The camera fee is in due part to the fact that we are a living community and it is a privilege to take pictures of our home and people. Also in this day and age of technology the image of Taos Pueblo is wide spread on the internet; how the image of Taos Pueblo is used, is pretty much out of the Tribes control. Therefore we exercise our Tribal Sovereignty and charge this permit. We want to remind our visitors that this is our community and home you are visiting and ask for a mutual respect. And as always the camera permit is optional.
For professional photographers, who are intent on selling the image(s) of the Pueblo there is a Photography agreement that must be signed as well as a fee of $ 300 which is for a one time use. Sketching and painting fees are required as well. Sketching is $250 and Painting is $150 both fees are per day. For further information please contact the Tourism office.
