Details: Come with your best practices about social media usage. Do you get clients through these channels? If so, what has worked and what has not?

A message from our Chapter President, Caleb Tkach
As 2017 comes to an end, so does my term as chapter president. It’s been a great two years and I’ve enjoyed serving as your president. For me, ASMP as always been about education and camaraderie. With the influx of people moving to Colorado, it has brought a lot of changes, but also many opportunities with both photography and video. Yes, that does mean that there is more competition in our market, but it also means that there is a lot of work out here.
As ASMP continues to put on events about things like registering copyright, marketing, and pricing, the market as a whole will become stronger. I’d like to encourage all members to help out by putting together an event with the board or just meeting one-on-one for a cup of coffee with a fellow photographer.
Once again, it has been an honor being your chapter president and I look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s events.
