Gives You More

Documents and Forms

ASMP has created the industry’s Gold Standard library of document templates and forms for you to use in every aspect of your content creation business. And unlike what you’ll find most other places, our legal team keeps them up-to-date so you can use them with confidence.

Copyright Protection Tools

ASMP offers a Complete Copyright Curriculum that will give you a full understanding of how to protect the photographs, video, and film you create — plus we provide you with easy-to-use forms to get the appropriate model releases, and to properly register and license your work.

Building Industry Connections

In addition to its 6,500+ strong and growing National Membership, ASMP has 38 local chapters across the United States, and Members in 22 countries — wherever you are, will be, or want to be, we have the in-person events, committees, boards, and online programs to introduce you to the connections that can change and grow your career. Many of our Members have built their careers with us for decades.

The ASMP Academy

The only comprehensive resource of its kind designed specifically for visual content creators of all stripes: Everything you need in one place to form, build, and grow your visual content creation business — and to legally protect the content you create. It’s color-coded by topic, always up-to-date, and with advanced search functions so you can always quickly find what you need, when you need it.

Savings with Corporate Partners

From insurance to equipment to technology, we’ve built partnerships with some of the world’s biggest brands to save you dollars.

One-on-One Clinic Hours

Get personalized attention to your legal and business questions from our General Counsel, who will discuss what’s going on in your business and how ASMP’s resources can help you solve whatever issues you face and take advantage of business opportunities.

Amazing Contests & Competitions

We partner with some heavy-hitters in the creative industry, like TIME, Sony, Wonderful Machine, and more to build contests that deliver amazing prizes and exposure opportunites that grow careers.

Access To NANPA Benefits

With our special partnership with the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA), ASMP Members have access to their full range of benefits, from discounts to amazing in-person multi-day events, contests with winners published in the prestigious Expressions journal, in-depth conservation training, educational programs, and much more.

Your membership includes access to this unique, one-stop-shop platform giving you everything you need to create, build, innovate, protect, and grow your visual content creation business
