Skillshare with Barry Schwartz – TOUR THE BOOK: ASMP Professional Business Practices in Photography, Part 1 Copy

Join us for a two part Skillshare on July 15 and August 19, as our esteemed ASMP member, Barry Schwartz, updates us and helps us navigate the one book every ASMP member has in their collection: Professional Business Practices in Photography.


TOUR THE BOOK: ASMP Professional Business Practices in Photography

What’s wrong (and right) with it

In the first of two webinars, Barry Schwartz will guide 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.

To do that, I will need your help.

 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?

Send your comments to “barry at barryschwartz dot com” with the subject line: ASMP Book.

 The second webinar on August 19 will build on the first and address all those issues and more.
