An important aspect of any working photographer's life is their association with the American Society of Media Photographers. ASMP Professional Business Practices in Photography, 7th Edition from Allworth Press helps guide photographers in their business practices, much like the ASMP itself. Filled with numerous articles from a number of successful professional photographers, including the past president of the ASMP, Susan Carr, this book is a treasure trove of insight and practicality. Known to some as the photographer's "business bible", this book provides answers to legal and business questions, estimating prices, working with clients, and features many ready-to-copy forms and checklists, along with a cross-media bibliography.
