Commercial Photo Shoots

Convenient location, acres of natural beauty, the majestic Swan House Mansion, our 1860s Smith Family Farm and many unique spaces, venues and exhibits make us an ideal location for your photo shoot. For commercial photo shoots, the subject, themes, controversial nature as well as the appropriateness and treatment to the Atlanta History Center mission and brand will all be taken into consideration before giving approval for the project to take place on our property. 

  • Fees are customized and based on the scope of the shoot, location and staffing required
  • During operating hours fees usually start at $1,000 for up to four consecutive hours and $1,500 for eight hours
  • Outside regular hours fees usually start at $1,500 for four hours and $300 per hour or any portion thereafter
  • Shoots that include interiors or need to close areas off have fees that usually start at $2,000 for eight hours

*Schedule at least two weeks prior to the photo shoot date desired.


If poor weather threatens your photo shoot, you may reschedule to an alternative date so long as you notify the Special Events Department in writing at least three business days in advance of your scheduled photo shoot start time. There is a $60 reschedule fee for rescheduling less than three days in advance for any reason (including weather).
