Photographers are responsible for your clients during the session. You must: (1) meet them, (2) escort them to the session area, (3) be knowledgeable of and inform clients of Baldwin Farm policies, as well as (4)follow your professional guidelines.
You are welcome to use any natural setting or backdrop. However, we discourage rearranging the pumpkins, mums, signs, wagons, hay bales and other items placed by farm employees for the benefit of the festival guests. Dismantling our displays is not allowed. We realize that professional photographers prefer to have their own materials to stack, position or adjust at will. To accommodate you, there will be several areas supplied with an assortment of pumpkins/gourds, fodder, hay bales, mums, etc., that you can use in any fashion that does not destroy the materials. This saves you the trouble of rounding up backdrops from our carefully placed displays and us the trouble of keeping track of inventory…a win-win. In the event you must move a pre-positioned item slightly, please make sure it is returned to its original position. You are, of course, welcome to bring your own props.
