Super 1 Day Photography Workshops

For two weeks in October, dozens of studios across the country will invite attendees to join daily workshops featuring portrait and wedding photography, posing and lighting, digital retouching and workflow, and sales and marketing strategies. It's a chance you won't want to miss—a full day of photography education brought to you by fellow professional photographers. All photographic classes will be held October 2-16, 2017 so you'll be able to find one that fits your educational needs and your schedule!

I missed the online registration, is there another way I can still participate?
YES, Register onsite!

What you need to do:

  • Contact the instructor of the class you'd like to attend and see if they have available slots.
  • Show up the day of a few minutes before the class begins and fill out a registration form, your instructor will have them there.
  • Bring $120 for payment, this method can be through credit card, check, or cash!

(If you decide to write a check, please make it out to PPA, subject line: Super 1 Day Fall 2017)

Our Super 1 Day participants vary in their specialties and locations, but they all seem to agree on one thing: Super 1 Day is one of the best and easiest ways to join your peers for an excellent learning experience!

  • "The hands-on experience was just what I needed. I'm walking away with loads of information!"
  • "This is the best opportunity for peer-to-peer instruction in the industry!"
  • "I feel inspired. I now have a vision for what I want to do and have found someone local who shares my vision!"
  • "The class size is cozy and comfortable—it definitely makes for a great learning environment!"

And remember: PPA members receive one service merit for each class they attend.
PPA Membership not required to participate.

Note: Fall 2017 registration cancellations made by Sept. 18, 2017 before 5:00pmET will receive a refund minus a $25 administration fee. There are no refunds after that date. There is a $20 service fee for all returned checks.
