    PPA Members:


    What would you do to capture the perfect shot? Professional photographers spend their careers in the pursuit of that image that embodies their artistry and vision, but there can be risks involved, like when taking photos on and near railroad tracks.

    PPA is offering a free webinar to explore how to keep photographers and their clients safe when train tracks are part of the desired shot. PPA is partnering with Operation Lifesaver, Inc., the nation's rail safety education organization, to address this very popular topic among photographer and safety groups. Operation Lifesaver, Inc.'s president, Joyce Rose, and director of communications, Libby Rector Snipe will offer photographers must-know safety tips and lead a discussion on inspiring fellow photographers on creative approaches to safe track photography.

    We value your feedback and want to know how we can improve. Please share your thoughts about the class here.
