Rules Regarding Portrait Photography
Although Rock Ford Plantation is located in Lancaster County Central Park, the mansion and its surrounding acreage are privately owned by the Rock Ford Foundation and supported and maintained by its members.
Throughout the year, the grounds of Rock Ford are used for many purposes and events, both private and public. In order to ensure the continued enjoyment of our grounds, we require professional photographers to be Photographer/Business Members of Rock Ford. If the individual taking portrait photography is not a professional photographer, Rock Ford Foundation requires that at least one member of the group be a Family Level Member (see levels of membership support). We advise that photographers follow these suggested rules and guidelines for taking portrait photography on the premises:
- Please contact the Rock Ford office (717-392-7223) to advise us when photography will be conducted on our grounds. We suggest 24 hours notice for photo sessions during weekdays and 48 hours notice during weekends due to wedding rentals on weekends.
- No professional photography is permitted during wedding rentals as the wedding party has exclusive rights to the grounds for the time period granted for that day.
We thank you for your assistance is following these guidelines and appreciate your support of Rock Ford Foundation.
