Eighteen attendees joined ASMP national executive director Tom Kennedy (formerly director of photography at National Geographic and multimedia director at the Washington Post) for a bull-session at Martha Lochert Photography on January 8th on goals for ASMP on the national level and how those decisions can positively impact our local chapter and the prosperity of our industry.

We were lucky enough to have him offer to meet with us while he was in town. He truly wants our input; as he stated “I am your servant, not your leader.” He wants ASMP to serve in aiding us to fully develop our creative persona, so feel free to contact him through http://www.asmp.org  with any ideas on how ASMP can better serve your needs.

Tom is passionate about  enlarging our membership pool, creating strategic alliances with other organizations to share resources in attaining our goals, mentoring photographers unfamiliar with best practices in the commercial end of the industry, creating student ambassadors, and making it easier for the local chapters to operate by moving ASMP forward through what he calls a “communication strategy reboot.”

ASMP is there to help and Tom wants us to “get out of the trees and see the forest” even if we are still recovering from the economic downturn and from the impact the consumer digital market has had upon us all.

“I was doing video of the ‘Dotting of the Eyes of the Lions’ Ceremony at the Tucson Chinese Culture Center.
My kids have purchased there own Lion used in ceremonies that primarily are performed around Chinese New Year.
When you have a new Lion, the teachers will wake up the Lions by doing a dotting the eyes, ears, feet and tail. It is like giving a soul to the lion.”

Pedro Guerrero, Who Captured Art in Photos, Dies at 95

Pedro E. Guerrero, a former art school dropout who showed up in the dusty Arizona driveway of Frank Lloyd Wright in 1939, boldly declared himself a photographer and then spent the next half-century working closely with him, capturing his modernist architecture on film, died on Thursday at his home in Florence, Ariz.  Pedro Eduardo Guerrero was born in Casa Grande, Arizona, on Sept. 5, 1917, and died at the age of 95.

ASMP Tucson Member Charles Hedgcock Highlighted in a Blog

Click on the lnk below to see the Lenswork blog which had some very nice things to say about our friend and fellow ASMP Tucson member Chip Hedgcock, who we may have to start referring to as “Edward!” Kudos to you, Chip. So nice you were recognized for the talent that you are by someone outside our circle.

Lost for words

When tragedy strikes, I often feel that nothing I can say will make a difference – Images however, will often speak volumes.

I have been prompted to go back and find old images of people that were involved in the tragedy as well as inspired to go out and create new images.

Here are some images from the recent Tucson tragedy that I wanted to share with our ASMP Tucson community.

PATRICK DEMARCHELIER CELEBRATES 66 years on the planet.

OK so I know this is a little selfish on my part but this photographer is one of my personal hero’s – His work is stunning in my humble opinion…. and since he is turning 66 today he gets the PHOTO of THE DAY placement.

Please if you have some suggestions of your favorite photographers send them over to me so we can post them up to the blog. It’s not just a space that is about ASMP Tucson, it’s a place that is also supposed to inspire us.
