ASMP Central Florida’s mission is to create and foster a photographic community, educate and inspire its members, and advocate sound business practices.


The American Society of Media Photographers is a national organization 
of more than 6,000 leading professional photographers. Founded by 
photojournalists in 1944. ASMP now comprises photographers working 
in editorial, portraiture, fashion, corporate, advertising, architecture, still 
life, and nearly every other area of photography.


ASMP was established to advance the interests of photographers and 
to cultivate friendship and mutual understanding among colleagues. ASMP 
promotes high professional standards and ethics and remains the foremost 
source for current information on business practices, rights, and ethics for all visual artists. We are photographers helping photographers. 


On behalf of the Central Florida Board, we welcome you, and we look 
forward to seeing you at our next event!

Happy 2013

On behalf of the board of directors of the Central Florida chapter of ASMP, I would personally like to extend to all our members our very best wishes for a safe, prosperous and healthy New Year.

As your board, we have made a great number of advances in 2012, with a healthy increase in our membership, thereby replacing our dropped members by over 100%, quality workshops and presentations in the past year, as well as a great outreach to the learning institutions across Central Florida thanks to an initiative from the ASMP foundation. We have gained much recognition at the very core of our organization, insofar as the future of our association resides with the upcoming professionals who are at the cutting edge of our ever-changing business models and practices. In effect, we have a renewed and vibrant membership, fully engaged in the solid practices of ASMP.

Our board has developed a sound understanding of the challenges facing our profession, not least because of our great diversity as each board member brings a different and valuable aspect of the medium, from commercial photography, fine art, architectural, sports, advertising, food, editorial, professional education, events, retail and so on. With this expansive background we are able to fully understand the varied needs of our growing membership and will continue to offer many diverse presentations and workshops.

It is my sincere wish that our membership will participate in our expanded offerings of presentations on your behalf for the coming year, as your board is fully engaged in their mission to support and educate professional photographers at all levels.

As always, I appreciate your feedback, concerns and suggestions, as this is the lifeline of our mission. Please do not hesitate to contact me or any other board members with your communications, as we represent you in this great professional organization. Professional photography is not ailing; I would contend that this is the greatest time to be a photographer within the many challenges we all face, yet with so many more possibilities than ever before.

Best regards,
