Concessions for social media

Wow. 395,000 followers. https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/114065946/instagramfamous-australian-bow-hunter-rescued-from-west-coast-mountains I'm glad he was rescued but reading the article got me wondering about how social media influencers operate. I don't know the details of exactly how Adam Greentree operates, but social media popularity is a significant income earner these days for people who work to attract enough followers. When someone specifically photographs and films and documents their outdoor adventures for publication to attract and retain attention for their brand, and then generate income from it, how does it fit into DOC's interpretation of commercial use of the conservation estate? Is there any reason why DOC shouldn't be chasing them for concessions?

its pretty much like an honesty box really where the govt are reliant on operators being honest , theres little chance of catching people and prosecuting them,,
