Basic principles for Photo Shoots in Monaco

A written permission is required to publish Photos of persons and their private property or to use them for promotional purposes. The dress code in Monaco is more strict than in France. In some areas, it’s not very different from the one in the Vatican City. At social, cultural or business events and especially during Photo Shoots, it is essential to follow the dress code. The etiquette of the princely house must not be violated.


Photo Shoots we don’t offer

We are not available for paparazzi photos, photo montages or photos which might be offensive to some people. We don’t use photography drones. We don’t take secret photos of Monseigneur Son Altesse Sérénissime le Prince Albert II, his sister Caroline of Hanover, Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, or Princess Charlène of Monaco and their family members.
