Filming and photography

The Heide gardens, grounds and architecture provide a unique backdrop for a range of filming and photography projects. Heide has been used as a location for fashion shoots, short films, television productions, weddings and portrait photography.

Filming and photography at Heide requires an approved permit. Fees are based on the size and impact of the shoot on the Heide site as outlined in the Fee Schedule.

Please note that Heide does not offer permits for filming or photography inside the galleries, nor the provision of green room facilities for wardrobe, hair and makeup.
