dpBestflow is shorthand for "Digital Photography Best Practices and Workflow" and offers definitive new guidelines for digital photography best practices to streamline and improve the process, production and preservation of digital photography. 

The dpBestflow team’s work produced comprehensive resources including the website  and the new books, Digital Photography Best Practices and Workflow Handbook (Anderson/Russotti, Focal Press 2009) and The DAM Book (Krogh, O’Reilly Media, 2009).

ASMP will be conducting educational seminars to present dpBestflow at ASMP Chapters in Miami and Los Angeles and at The Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar (external link), to the Photo Imaging Education Association (external link), at the Society for Photographic Education (external link) SPE) National Conference, and at the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International convention.
