At ASMP we believe:
- Creators have the right to own their work, and we will fight for that right.
- We are stronger together.
- Images are a vital form of communication and visual literacy is invaluable to our entire culture.
- Successful creatives are successful entrepreneurs.
- The art and business of photography changes constantly, and we will evolve with it.
ASMP is guided by these values. Our core mission is to advocate, educate, and provide community for image makers — fostering thriving careers, a strong sense of professional ethics, and an unshakable belief in the power of images.
Creativity is your passion and your livelihood — and ASMP and its membership will stand beside you to help you live your best creative life.
To create sustainable information, advocacy and communication systems designed to empower and educate still and motion photographers, and associated imaging professionals.
