  • Are photo businesses “essential” under most stay at home orders? Examining the parameters of essential v. non-essential as it applies to photographers.

We know this is a stressful time for all photographers and creatives, and in response, ASMP has set up a COVID-19 Info Hub where you can find information, watch videos, and be connected with the most useful resources. This set of Town Hall events is another way to hear from our members, and provide current, practical, and sound advice in these tough times. We have also recently posted a COVID-19 Impact Survey to gather data to guide future content for Town Halls and webinars as well as inform our advocacy campaign directives. Please take 2 minutes to assist us by participating in the survey.

If you are unable to attend, this Town Hall will be recorded and posted on the COVID-19 Town Hall Q&A page where previous Town Hall Q&A videos are posted.

We hope to see you on Friday.
