No permit is required from private persons* or from journalists who are conducting an interview in Musiikkitalo’s public areas (the foyers) for photography during normal opening hours, provided that it does not interfere with other activities or visitors.
In practice, this means that photographers are not allowed to obstruct customers or staff and may not construct studio spaces within the premises. Lighting equipment and other photography tools must operate with a battery. (Electric cables are not allowed, in order to prevent tripping.)
Photography is allowed during Musiikkitalo’s opening hours and must stop no later than two hours before the evening's concert starts.
All photographers must inform the Musiikkitalo information desk about the commencing photography session when entering the building. Musiikkitalo has the right to prohibit any photography sessions.
*Note! Private persons’ portfolio or portrait photography which is not related to Musiikkitalo or its activities is not included in the non-commercial photography permit; in other words, TFP/TFCD photography is not allowed in Musiikkitalo.
