Our mission: Enhancing the strength of the American Society of Media Photographers by creating educational and professional opportunities for Northwest image makers to connect and thrive.

The Seattle/Northwest chapter is one of the largest of ASMP’s 40 chapters.  Our members include photographers from Washington, Idaho and Montana.  The Seattle/Northwest board of directors are made up hardworking, innovative creatives that are actively working in photography and other creative fields.

We hold 8-10 board meetings and many educational and social events throughout the year.   We also host an annual slideshow highlighting our members’ photography.  Our local partners also support the learning and understanding of the business.



ASMP Seattle/Northwest Chapter directors are elected by General Members and serve a two year term.  Executive Officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and Membership Chair) are nominated and elected by the board of directors every year.

The board members of ASMP Seattle/Northwest volunteer their time to provide the latest information in the photography industry for today’s working photographers.  The resources gathered by the board help build a valuable foundation that benefits the Seattle/Northwest chapter and the general photographic community in the Pacific Northwest.

The board meets once a month to discuss chapter needs and to plan for upcoming events.  Working together as a team is just as important as each director’s individual role.  We also rely on our volunteers and chapter sponsors, thank you!

Did you know any ASMP member is allowed to attend board meetings?  We love hearing from our members!  If you have questions or other feedback please use the contact page.
