The MAGC office is open Monday – Saturday, 9 am – 5 pm. If the photo shoot takes place outside of these hours, payment must be received prior to the shoot.

Casual, informal photography is permitted on the grounds. All photographers wishing to utilize the Marin Art & Garden Center (MAGC) property for private or commercial photo shoots must check in at the main office prior to the shoot. Availability depends on the MAGC calendar; a photo shoot may only take place if it does not conflict with private events such as weddings, memorials, concerts or other events MAGC has booked.

A $100 per hour fee is required for use of the grounds and shall be paid with via check, cash or credit card, prior to the photo shoot.
