TOUR THE BOOK: ASMP Professional Business Practices in Photography
What’s wrong (and right) with it
In case you missed it…In Part one Barry Schwartz gave us a tour of the long-time “bible” for photographers – why it remains a reliable, high-level guide to being a professional and why it needs to be updated.
In the second of two webinars, Barry Schwartz will build on what we learned during Part One.
Lots of the book is still relevant, but lots has changed since 2008 when the book last came out. Digital, of course, changed everything. Social media, licensing pressures, the culture of “free”, cell phones and consumer cameras that take amazing photos.
Publications under stress, advertisers under stress, clients under stress. A person could get stressed out.
What keeps you up at night? What helps you sleep? What’s better than it ever was? What do you wish someone had told you years ago?
What have I left out?
