Accepted Photography Categories

  • Lifestyle Photos – People & Nature: A person or people in an outdoor setting or the interior of our yurt, tipi, or tent. Lifestyle photos that are complementary to our products, such as camping, adventure/outdoor activities, vacation, a romantic retreat, spa/yoga days, group gatherings, and educational purposes would be acceptable.
  • Landscape: This should give us a sense of place and show the full landscape around you with one of our yurts, tipis, and/or tents. Could include people or wildlife but the primary focus should be the structure of the landscape.
  • Wildlife: This can include mammals, birds, domestic animals, or farm animals in an environment where one of our yurts, tipis, and/or tents resides.
  • Weather & Climate: Should showcase our yurts, tipis, and tents in various climates and weather. We would love to see our structures in different locations and weather as it makes for unique photos!
  • Astrophotography & Night: Any night photos taken should also include our structures. Photos can be either exterior or interior shots. Starry night skies, campfires, star trails, or moonlit nights all make for great photos!
  • Long Exposures:  This is a creative style of photography that should still highlight our products. This can be used to showcase a creek, river, light trails, or movement.
  • Panoramas: Panorama photos are a great way to emphasize a large area. If you should choose to do this style of photography, please make sure the structure does not become distorted in the shot.
  • Aerial & Drone Photography: This should include a clear shot of a Secret Creek structure such as a yurt, tipi, or tent. The product should be large enough to spot in your photo to be considered.
  • Interior Design Photography:  Interior design photos should not only focus on the décor of a space but the structure and space as a whole. These interior spaces can be any of our Secret Creek yurts, tipis, or tents.
