Jen Worley is the 2022 President of the Board of the Pittsburgh Chapter Of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP). The American Society of Media Photographers is a professional association of imaging professionals, whether photographers, videographers, or content creators. It includes photographers specializing in architecture, portrait, food/culinary, commercial, advertising, photojournalism. ASMP advocates for photographers’ legal rights, collaboration among members, and provides business and technical resources.
The new board kicked off their year by re-defining the chapter’s mission, which is “To grow a vibrant, inclusive community of media professionals in the Pittsburgh region, to elevate the quality and value of our field for all creatives.”
In the first half of 2022, the board of 8 has taken on the challenge of creating programming in the coming-out-of-Covid world. Some of their work this year has been: Virtual Portfolio Reviews featuring national reviewers from the advertising, media & consultant arena. Monthly meet-ups to get to network with other local photographers, local camera shops, and associations. An Assistant Workshop geared towards college students, and a photography program for the McKeesport Community Newsroom.
