Paine Marketing Content

The Paine coordinates photographers to independently shoot the mansion, gardens, events, and exhibitions during open hours for marketing purposes. This includes capturing images of visitors. If you see one of our photographers and prefer not to have your image taken, kindly notify them and they will abide accordingly.

Social Media Resources

Please see our Social Media Resources for information on official handles, hashtags, and information on influencer collaborations.

Aerial Photography, Videography, and Drones

As the Paine is a private organization, we exercise Wisconsin statute 942.10, where the law prohibits photography, recording, or observing individuals in a place where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Advance written approval is required for aerial photography and use of drones over Paine property. Proof of insurance, FAA license and registration, and adhering to all federal and state laws is required. For the safety of all visitors, drones may not be used during open hours.
