There are lots of new things going on at ASMP this year and we would love our members’ help in spreading the word. If you know any still or motion photographers, professional assistants, digital techs, retouchers, CGI artists or any other associated imaging professionals who haven’t yet discovered the benefits of ASMP, we want to give you BOTH a copy of Business Practices for Photographers by John Harrington. We have a special ASMP version with a forward from Executive Director, Tom Kennedy.
ASMP membership empowers, engages, and expands the network of anyone who joins. Now we are making it even more interesting by giving you BOTH John Harrington’s Book.
