This indispensable manual from the American Society of Media Photographers sets the stage for understanding where the industry is now and where it is headed while offering step-by-step instructions for building a career tailored to one’s own talents, interests, and business style in today’s market. 

An overview of developments in the industry covers the new visual needs created by the economy, the changing definition of what it means to be a photographer, the shifting distribution of clients, the role of technology, and the role of copyright, licensing, compensation, and contracts.
