Permits needed for photography workshops in USA?

1 month 2 weeks ago #738153 by Kenta
I have a friend who has been traveling to Colorado and photographing not only there, but Utah and she really knows both of these states very well. I was telling her that she should start a photography workshop in both states.  She shrugged it off as a lot of work (which she was OK with) and a ton of permits needed.  I was surprised on the permits, and not to double guess my friend, but just curious in general.  Would you happen to know what permits are needed?

Your best to reach out to the parks and check with them on what is needed, permits and I'm sure insurance of some sort will be needed.

Most of the parks will require you to have insurance for conducting the workshop on the venue

Yes, permits/permission... Because running a workshop is basically conducting your business in a park. I'd say insurance to make sure whoever's running the workshop and the participants are protected in case of any accidents, injuries.

I used to be a camp director, probably need to make sure anything/everything is covered, you never know what could happen. Try to think of what to do in situations that might arise.
