Mentor Programs

The ASMP Foundation is the major founding sponsor of the Young Photographers Alliance (YPA).


YPA is an educational foundation dedicated to rallying the resources of the creative community and general public in support of young talent. Its mission is to inspire and empower the next generation of image-makers by offering the real-world knowledge, insight, experience and contacts they need to build sustainable careers as photography professionals.


Through our support of YPA, the ASMP Foundation is able to participate in the development of new professionals through mentoring and an annual scholarship. Additionally, plans for an Intern Program are in the works.
