Our goal is to educate photogaphers, clients and students to the value of photography and the benefits of good business practices. The American Society of Magazine Photographers was founded in 1944 by a handful of the world's leading photographers, and is recognized internationally for its leadership role. ASMP has more than 5000 members in 40 chapters across the USA, and members in 37 foreign countries.
The ASMP has three purposes:
1. To protect and promote the interests of photographers whose work is for publication.
2. To promote high professional standards and ethics.
3. To cultivate friendship and mutual understanding between photographers. Professional photogaphers rely on the paid use of their images to support themselves.
