Says Glendinning, “ASMP membership has given me so many insights into the ways and means of the profession, opportunities to work with creative art directors and others, and interactions through a network of professional
colleagues, that it literally changed the trajectory of my career as a photographer. It has also given me new entrepreneurial business and creative insights to share with my MSU students.

“I have received many honors in my career,” Glendinning says, “but none can match this in terms of professional recognition in the medium of photography, and there is only one other I’ve received that comes even close to this in personal meaning, that being the MSU College of Arts & Letters Paul Varg Alumni Award for Faculty.”
