What is PPA?
More photographers get into the industry every day, but few know how to profitably run a business and many don’t know where to turn for support. That’s why Professional Photographers of America (or PPA) was started back in 1868, and that’s why we exist today.
Created and led by professional photographers, PPA is a non-profit international association that helps those serious about photography live their dreams profitably and bridge the gap between their business operations and their consumers.
To do that, we…
· Lead the way in educating photographers on business and technical skills to help them grow and succeed beyond what they believed possible.
· Connect photographers with other great minds in the industry—via online and live classes, consultations and conventions—to spread best practices, new ideas and strong networks of support.
· Protect photographers’ livelihoods with benefits, such as copyright advocacy, malpractice protection, and equipment insurance.
Over 30,000 professional photographers rely on PPA now, and we are always looking for and investing in new ways to provide the resources and support they need. Sound like a mission you want to be a part of? Then we want you!
