Active and working media, bloggers, and influencers have the opportunity to cover the TSA for traditional or social media. Requests must be submitted at least 72 hours in advance. Discounts and complimentary tickets are given on a case-by-case basis and are not guaranteed. Any tickets or discounted tickets do not include parking fees.
Anyone can take photos and videos inside the Aquarium for their private, personal use only. For safety reasons, the use of tripods or monopods is prohibited.
Media should contact the Communications department in advance to arrange to shoot photos and videos that will be used in articles and programs that include the Texas State Aquarium. There are some restrictions on the use of tripods and supplemental lighting.
Taking photos or videos for commercial purposes, including for stock images, commercial products, and other commercial purposes is prohibited without prior authorization from the Communications department.
The Aquarium maintains an extensive library of high-resolution images that are available to members of the media for use with stories about the Aquarium. We make these available to media at no charge in our online Photo Gallery.
We consider each location request on an individual basis, and fees may be charged for shooting. Requests can be accommodated only if they do not conflict with scheduled Aquarium events.
By entering, you consent to your voice and photography being used without compensation in any and all media and marketing materials, and you release the Texas State Aquarium from any liability of usage.
