May is National Photography Month

Up your skillsets during National Photography Month.

In May, take the opportunity to up your photography skills by doing something outside the box of your current routine. Attend an ASMP webinar about commercial photography or book publishing. Register for a portfolio review or a  workshop on Adobe Lightroom. View all upcoming ASMP events. If your schedule does not permit your attendance at a live webinar, log in and view past webinar videos on a wide range of topics from estimating critique to video storytelling.

Additional ASMP resources to dive into this month to keep you in the know include town hall updates by ASMP General Counsel Tom Maddrey with important information to assist you in operating your business during these unusual times. You can also access ASMP publications – the ASMP Health + Safety Guide for COVID-19: A Protocol for Visual Creators and the ASMP Business + Legal Guide for COVD-19: A Protocol for Visual Creators – to assist you in framing steps in safety and contracts as you start back to work.

Whatever you choose to do during National Photography Month, make it a game changer. Master the art of lighting or advance your drone flying skills. If you are looking to learn something new, post your questions in the ASMP Forums to start your knowledge quest on whatever topic with a discussion in the ASMP community. The ASMP community is a wealth of information and expertise. And don’t forget to engage with ASMP on social media during #NationalPhotographyMonth to promote photography and your work.

While we promote photography and member work, ASMP will also be spotlighting some of its founding members during National Photography Month by connecting you with a series of interviews with founding members that include legends and influencers Ezra Stoller, Bradley Smith, Berenice Abbott, Lou Jacobs, Arnold Newman, Charlotte Brooks, Andreas Feininger, Barrett Gallagher, and Wayne Miller among others.
