About ASMP and The ASMP Foundation: Since its founding in 1944, The American Society of Media Photographers (“ASMP”) has enjoyed historically important members, from all genres of photography; from Dorthea Lange to Gordon Parks, to Richard Avedon. ASMP is the premier trade association for the most respected photographers across the world. ASMP is the leader in providing extensive education and resources to photographers on the best practices to run and grow a business in these fields, promoting the rights of photographers through a robust program of legal and public policy advocacy, connecting member photographers with clients, and producing business publications for photographers that set the industry standards. ASMP is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year with nearly 3,500 members and 38 chapters.
The ASMP Foundation is a 501(c) 3 associated with but independent from the American Society of Media Photographers. The ASMP leadership saw a need to create a vehicle that could better support and fund educational and culturally important projects that would nurture young talent and support photographic endeavors in communities not routinely covered by mainstream media. In addition, it was important to provide a way to contribute to the national conversation on media and visual literacy with a particular focus on how visual language and images enhance our understanding of the world beyond one own life’s boundaries.
