Your Roadmap to Success
with Judy Herrmann

Most of us become professional photographers because we want to earn a living doing work we love. Achieving that dream, though, takes more than basic business skills. In this energizing and informative seminar, Judy Herrmann, provides real world strategies for building a working business plan that will help you build the business of your dreams. Unlike formal business plans that are designed to satisfy lenders, your working plan will help you set and achieve your creative and financial goals, identify and assess business opportunities, compete more successfully and attract the right clients for your business. Whether you’re just starting out or have years of experience, the tools and techniques shared in this program will help you earn more money doing work you love.

21st Century Copyright and You
with Tom Kennedy


There is no legislative act that has a greater impact on your ability to earn a living as a creator than copyright. For the first time since 1976, Congress and the Copyright Office have made a public commitment to significantly modernize the Copyright Act. Global corporations with deep pockets have already aligned against the interests of independent creators. Only our numbers and a strong unified voice can counter their lobbyists and their messaging. In this critically important seminar, ASMP Executive Director Tom Kennedy will give you a solid understanding of what’s at play and how you can contribute to the process to ensure that you’ll be able to earn a living in this new era of copyright.
