We apply the covariant spectator quark model to the study of the electromagnetic structure of the N∗(1520) state (Jp = 3-/2), an important resonance from the second resonance region in both spacelike and timelike regimes. The contributions from the valence quark effects are calculated for the γ∗N → N∗(1520) helicity amplitudes. The results are used to parametrize the meson cloud dominant at low Q2.
