Join us for Members Photography Morning on Saturday, April 10 from 8:00 am to 10:00 am and enjoy exclusive access to photograph parts of the penitentiary before the site opens to visitors.
Bring your tripod! Normally, due to COVID-19 restrictions, tripods are not permitted during public tour hours, and visitors must follow a one-way path from audio stops 1-10. For Members Photography Morning, from 8:00 am to 10:00 am, these two restrictions are suspended. Photographers can use tripods and explore all open areas of the penitentiary freely as long as they stay six feet apart and wear a mask at all times.
Areas open for the event will include the East Drive, the Death Row Courtyard, Cellblock 3 (the Hospital Block), Cellblock 15 (Death Row), Center (including the Cellblock 7 gallery), and Cellblocks 8, 9, 11, 2, and 10.
Advance registration is required. When you arrive, you’ll be asked to present your member card and sign this document acknowledging that you’ve read and will abide by our photography policies. To save time at check-in, please feel free to print and sign the document at home, bring it with you, and present it at arrival.
