You never know what you'll find out about on theLoop, PPA's members-only social network. Recently, PPA member David Bailey, M.Photog., CPP, of Colorado Springs, shared info we figured deserved another push... and a big THANK YOU!

InterDrone, the biggest Drone Conference and Expo in the country is coming to Las Vegas, September 6-8, 2017! We know from the response to our Drone Zone at Imaging USA last year that drones are currently the hottest addition to a successful photography business. Now you can experience a conference devoted to all things drone... certainly some inspiration you may want to pick up if you're considering becoming a PPA Certified Drone Photographer... which David Bailey also just did!

InterDrone will feature information for builders, buyers, and flyers of commercial drones, technical classes, an expo hall with the "Yes-Fly Zone" drone demo area, expert speakers, and other special events. InterDrone's expo will feature more than 185 unmanned system manufacturers and sellers. The full commercial drone conference features more than 120 panels, sessions, classes and drone workshops. Justin Moore, PPA's first Drone Certified Photographer, is also a speaker at InterDrone!

If you register by August 25th, there is a discount available! David asked for and received another 15% discount for PPA members, so just use the discount code PHOTO when you register! Visit www.interdrone.com for more information.

The program is a benefit provided by Apple Inc. to members of PPA and other participating organizations. The program is intended for personal use.

At PPA, we're always striving to help you be more as a professional photographer. There's many ways we do this, but just one of those ways is offering PPA members deals and discounts on products you use in your photography business! 

PPA members already get unbelievable discounts on products and services that they use on a daily basis, but occasionally PPA negotiates something extra special with top photo companies. We call these Extreme Deals. Extreme Deals are short-term discounts and offers, only for PPA members. This March, we've got an extreme deal for PPA members on Accucolor albums. 

Here's the offer: Get one 10x10, 15 side/30 page album and two 8x8, 15 side/30 page albums with the "Elite Collection" or "Leatherette" cover material for only $300! Plus save 50% off any album upgrade options. 

Sounds pretty good, right? Just be sure to log-in to the member only Extreme Deal page by March 31 to get all the information on how to take advantage of this deal. 

Of course, being a PPA member gets you access to more than just the Extreme Deals and other discounts. You'll also get full access to PPAedu, our collection of live workshops and webinars and on-demand videos on various techniques for photographers and business practices. You can even take the PPAedu Assessment to get recommendations for the courses you should attend or watch to help you be more as a photographer!  

Along with PPAedu, members can also access theLoop, our online community just for PPA members! Here, you can discuss various topics that impact the photography business, all without fear of having potential customers see what you've been posting. 

These are just a few of the benefits of PPA membership. Browse the benefits section to see even more perks of joining our photography association. And remember, to access the Extreme Deal, PPAedu or theLoop you've got to be a PPA member, so join today!

NIK_logo.pngFor the first time ever, Nik Software is bringing together three of its most popular and award-winning tools for an exclusive PPA Extreme Deal. For a limited time, you have access to the Creative Efex Collection, which includes Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro and HDR Efex Pro.

With this collection, you'll be able to maximize your creativity and work seamlessly with your favorite image editing software to provide high-quality retouching, color correction, creative enhancements, high-dynamic range imaging, fine art black-and-white conversion, and much more.

"Nik Software's new Creative Efex Collection is perfect for the wedding and portrait photographer," says Tony L. Corbell, Cr.Photog., API, Senior Manager of Product Education and Planning at Nik Software and PPA member since 1979.  "This set is amazing, and I use it on literally every picture I take. Color Efex Pro is my favorite series of filters, while Silver Efex Pro is the only real answer to making quality black-and-white images. Of course, HDR Efex Pro will change the way in which we view high contrast scenes by making the dynamic range no longer a problem to solve, but a condition to enhance."
