ASMP, AIA Release Best Practices for Commissioning Architectural Photography
Press Release



At the 2006 Convention of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), opening today in Los Angeles, the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) will distribute bound copies of "Commissioning Architectural Photography," a compendium of Best Practice documents that has been jointly published by AIA and ASMP. The documents are part of the AIA Best Practice library, which covers professional standards and advice across the whole spectrum of architectural practice. The library's contents are offered to AIA's 50,000 members, to contractors and allied trades, and to the public.

"Commissioning Architectural Photography" is freely available on the ASMP Web site at http://www.asmp.org/pdfs/AIA_ASMP_BestPractices.pdf

Subjects include:
* Selecting a Professional Photographer
* Understanding the Estimate for a Photographic Assignment
* Controlling the cost of a Photography Assignment
* Preparing for Professional Photography: A Checklist
* Licensing Photographs for Publication
* Sharing the Photographic Assignment: A Case Study

Architectural photographer and former ASMP president Susan Carr calls it, "An outstanding resource for architects and photographers alike. We all win when we are working from the same page...our new road map!" These documents are useful to all photographers in their effort to help clients better understand the process of working with an assignment photographer.

The Best Practice documents are another product of the continuing collaboration between AIA and ASMP, which also includes a gallery of photographs and the presentation of continuing education mini-seminars at the current AIA National Convention in Los Angeles, June 8 through 10. Full information on the AIA National Convention is at www.aiaconvention.com

The individual Best Practice documents can be found on the AIA Web site:
