About Kingston

Kingston is the county seat of Ustler County fronting the confluence of the Hudson River and the Rondout Creek. According to the 2020 census, the population is recorded at 24,069 over its 8.7 square miles. Kingston served as the first capital of New York for a short time in 1777. The government seat moved 60 miles upriver to Albany after having received a warning of an imminent attack by the British.

Kingston is known for its historic churches. The city’s history of its settlement and its early founders are shown by the church denominations—Dutch Reform, Lutheran, Episcopal, and Catholic. These structures remain in use today within Kingston’s historic districts. There are three historic districts comprising the city’s uptown, midtown and downtown areas, all of which are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Rondout Creek is a major tributary of the Hudson River and Kingston is located on this delta. From its early settlement, Kingston played an important role in shipping starting with furs and agriculture, then moving to cement when natural deposits were discovered. Quarrying then became Kingston’s predominant industry. Today, the major industries of Kingston remain trade and transportation.

The photographer should also be able to advise on the resolution for the final images for framing or uploading. The photographer needs the skill set to produce the deliverables to the client to meet the expectations, budget, and use.

  • Furniture Rental
    Whether a photo shoot venue is indoors or out, the set will need to be furnished as will the areas for the behind-the-scenes work. The talent team will need to be comfortable, warm/cool, and be provided with the proper workspace to perform. The furnishing of a photo shoot is about the subject and those supporting the shoot.

  • Permitting
    The city of Kingston requires a permit for all commercial photography to access any city service and to obtain approval for the venue if any street, right-of-way, or city property is impacted. There may be other permits necessary for the shoot. The city recommends planning for a 30-day review period. The completed application will need to include the location, the schedule, the safety plan, and a list of local businesses hired for the shoot.

  • Livability

  • Small town vibe
    Kingston has been described as a “quaint, small town in the Hudson Valley.” The scenic views of lush trees and the distant rolling mountains set in a historic artist community make this area of the valley a popular weekend respite. The historic districts of downtown are known for their restaurants, small shops, and local entertainment.


  • Transportation

  • Economy
