As we look forward to starting the 7th year of the ASMP Strictly Business Blog, I’d like to take a moment to look back and say a huge and heartfelt thank you to the many regular and guest contributors who have given so generously of their time and knowledge.
Thanks also, to you, our readers, for giving meaning and purpose to the work we do here.
An extra special thanks to goes out to our ASMP Members – so many of you have become dear friends over the years and without you, none of this could be possible!
If you have not yet joined, I urge you to consider supporting this worthy organization. ASMP has given me an invaluable network of peers who have bestowed one-on-one advice and support in every aspect of my business. When it comes to information about running a photography business, there’s no source that I trust more to give me honest, real-world answers. Most of all, ASMP speaks on my behalf in Congress, in the Courts and on the international stage – looking out for my interests in ways that I never could alone.
With the Copyright Office and Congress engaged in serious discussions about Copyright Reform for the first time in nearly 50 years, it is more important than ever to support the organizations that are supporting your interests in these discussions. I urge you to learn more by watching the recording of Tom Kennedy’s important update, 21st Century Copyright & You.
