Johnson’s Farm Photo Policy 2022

We welcome those who wish to use Johnson’s Farm as a backdrop/setting for any portrait/commercial photography, even if the photographer is not compensated, financially or otherwise. Anyone not using an iPhone to take photos will need to turn in a signed waiver and pay the photographer fee online upon arrival! 


We accept photos from April-October! However, we DO NOT accept photography weekends in MAY and nights of events! Please contact us at [email protected] to make sure the day is set before arriving!  

Please read this information carefully and completely. We ask that professional photographers cooperate on the following manner:



  • Purchase a photographers Pass:
    1. 2022 Annual Pass is $125, must be purchase below! This covers each admissions attendance of the ONE photographer with the given lanyard. Other photographer’s assistants and clients MUST purchase admissions to whatever event we have going on! This pass is valid for photography sessions only and not for Fun Farm Festival admission on other visits. 
    2. 2022 Single-Day Pass is $75, must be purchase below! Covers only the named photographer, and is good for one day only during the 2022 season! Clients are expected to purchase admissions to whatever event. 
  • Provide us a notice at least 48 hours ahead of your session by emailing [email protected]with the following information. The waiver is due AT LEAST 24 hours before your shoot. You can email it to [email protected]

    3. Date and time of upcoming photography session
    4. Number of people in the party-including yourself, any assistants, and your clients

  • Festival admissions is required for everyone in a photography party. Your photographers season pass covers YOUR admissions for those sessions. Your staff/assistants as well as clients must purchase festival admissions!

  • Aside from simply sharing social media posts by Johnson’s Farm Produce, please do not promote any of our special events, character appearances, or sales as a way to promote your photography sessions. This is to maintain the integrity of our offerings and allow for changes due to weather, illness or other reasons!
