About Professional Photographers of America

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. 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.

Today, over 30,000 professional photographers rely on PPA, and we are always looking for and investing in new ways to provide the resources and support they need. Sound like a cause you want to be a part of? Then we want to meet you!

“Everything!! Working at PPA was one of the best internship experiences I have ever had. I learned so many valuable things at this nonprofit, and now I have a ton of experience in copywriting, email creation, drip campaigns, blog writing, designing graphics in Canva, etc. Everyone there is incredibly friendly, and they have an open-door policy, so you can always ask questions when you need help. They treat you like you're a part of the team, and they genuinely want you to succeed. I highly recommend working here!! ”
