Filming and Photography

News media who would like to shoot at either of the National Aquarium’s venues may contact 410-986-2386 or media@aqua.org to obtain clearance and arrange for a staff escort. We have several restrictions with regard to time of day for filming, ability to providing lighting on certain animals, and crowd control.

Due to the amount of time associated with escorting film crews and interviews, we cannot accommodate requests to help with school projects. We receive more than a thousand requests from students each year and we simply cannot meet the demand to answer questions related to school projects.

Students are still encouraged to plan a trip to the Aquarium to speak with our staff. In addition to scheduled programming, interactions and talks throughout the day, our exhibit guides are happy to help answer questions during your visit. If you can’t make it to the Aquarium, our website is a great resource for student projects.
