It's a lawyer's question but I think arguably you would be able to make money from a video or photo shot in a National Park, as long as you weren't there with commercial intent. Here's the Conservation Act's explanation of when a concession is required, which is also referenced by the National Parks Act. http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1987/0065/latest/DLM104633.html#DLM104633 In summary you need a concession for everything you do, *unless* you're undertaking a recreational activity without specific gain or reward. Plus a few other things. But does that mean you cannot sell something you earlier made for recreation purposes? How about people who get a job as a consequence of fitness that was enhanced by recreation in a National Park?
The intent is what matters. Taking a photo then some time later selling it is no different to giving that photo to someone else who sells it. I dont know if wilderness mag has a concession for its photos
