Did you miss a program this past spring?

We’ve transcribed our notes from our Spring 2017 programs. Catch up and / or review here.

15% off Bob Korn Imaging Services

All Bob Korn Imaging services will discount all work with ASMP members by 15%. When you need to print your work, go see Bob and remember “a photograph isn’t a photograph until it’s a print.”

Three Ways to Help ASMP

ASMP is a volunteer run organization. Here are three ways ASMP could use your help: 1) Volunteer with the ASMP New England board. 2) ASMP National is putting in a big push on a Small Claims Court. 3) ASMP National is also working on various projects to better serve members with commitments running from small to large. Please contact ASMP New England President Mike Ritter for details.


ASMP is getting traction on creating a small claims copyright court. Call / Email your rep by February 1st to voice your support of HR 3945 “Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act of 2017.” Short and sweet, Federal Court is the only option for infringement cases and it’s prohibitively expensive. Small Claims Court will offer a much more appropriate venue for most infringement cases. Read up here to learn more about the push for a Small Claims Court.

Please make a commitment to join us next year and be part of what makes ASMP a great place for photographic artists in ASMP New England. Click here for more information.

The ASMPNE board meets once a month. If you’re interested in attending a board meeting, please let chapter president Mike Ritter ( know. We have a strong board but are always in need of new members.

Area schools are interested in landing internships for their students and have asked ASMP New England for any interested members. We’d like to gather a list of members interested in having an intern. Possible interns will reach out to photographers they are most interested in interning with.

Please answer the following questions and send to ASMPNE President Mike Ritter ( so we can share with prospective schools and interns:

• Please describe your experience.
• Where is your studio / office?
• What will an internship with you entail?
• Ideally students work on a mix of shooting, post production and marketing / social media.
• Can students expect to earn anything from assisting on your jobs?

Right now, an Endicott student is looking for a full internship in the fall of 2017 (her senior year). It would be 32 hours a week for 14 weeks. She’s interested in fashion and location portraiture for commercial / editorial clients.
