Commercial Photography / Filming Procedures

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (the Authority) has established fees for the use of our facilities as a location or background for commercial photography or video, motion picture, and television filming. The Authority has also established policies related to insurance, “hold harmless” agreements, and security that are a prerequisite for obtaining permission for filming and photography activities.

Please read the Airports Authority's commercial filming policy and download an application at this link.
