Photography Policy

Tonkadale is happy to accomodate photographers in our retail space in support of our mission to enrich lives by creating plant-inspired experiences as we connect everyone to beautiful spaces.

To schedule a photo shoot, please read the following guidelines and complete an application.

Professional photographers must provide a certificate of liability insurance before their application is approved.

If the intent of your photo shoot is for self-interest, for profit or for commercial use, the following guidelines apply to you:

  • Check in at the front desk to obtain your reserved photo permit.
  • Be respectful of customer traffic and work activities – stay out of the way!
  • Do not take photos of random people without their permission.
  • Be mindful of restroom time should you need a changing area – we only have two.
  • Do not disturb displays of merchandise or plants.
  • Put items back where you found them.
  • Wear shoes and appropriate clothing at all times.
  • Do not climb ladders, stand on benches, display pieces and tables or ride on shopping carts.
  • Keep children in your sight at all times.
  • Keep animals on a leash and all times.
  • Please present photo subjects and material in a positive manner.
  • No alcoholic beverages unless they are sealed.
  • Be nice to the cats. Their names are Tiger and Boots.
  • Take time to shop, maybe even buy something. This is free after all!
