Wednesday September 30

Join ASMP Member and lifestyle photographer Inti St. Clair and ASMP General Counsel Thomas Maddrey for a conversation about licensing, copyright, and how to make sure you and your clients are on the same page about the future. 

Drawing from her work with advertising clients such as Alaska Airlines, Google, T-Mobile and more, and editorial clients such as Conde Nast, Scholastic, and Modern Luxury among others, Inti will relate the strategies and considerations that help her determine what licenses to grant, what value to consider, and how to get the client to meet you in the middle.

At the same time, Thomas will discuss the license itself, the best practices for communicating with clients and negotiation practices, and what to do if your license is breached. 

Of course, the pair answered questions live during the webinar as well.
