This is definitely hyped up.  Nothing has really changed.  Here’s an excerpt from an article below with a clarification.


The proposal does not change the rules for visitors or recreational photographers. Generally, professional and amateur photographers will not need a permit unless they use models, actors or props; work in areas where the public is generally not allowed; or cause additional administrative costs.

Tom Tidwell already announced four days ago that this is meant "to only apply to commercial filmmakers shooting movies or ads, and photographers who bring in extensive props and sets."
