Be More Educated: Take the PPAedu Assessment
To be the best photographer possible, it's important to continually educate yourself about the latest techniques for photographers as well as business practices. But where can you find the education you need? And once you find it, how do you know that it will meet your needs?
To help you be more educated, PPA recently launched PPAedu as part of PPA's member benefits. There's currently over 170 HD videos available (and we're constantly adding more) on demand as well as live webinars in both creative photography techniques and business practices. Better yet, it's all included at no extra cost with your PPA membership!
What really separates PPAedu from the myriad of photography education is the ability to create a personalized program of classes. How do we do it? Through PPAedu's Assessment Tool.
PPA members can take the assessment at no extra cost. You'll be asked a few painless questions about things like the state of your business, marketing plan, sales and finance. You'll also be asked questions about techniques for photographers like lighting, posing and post-capture. If that sounds daunting, don't panic! Each section moves pretty quickly, and you can always go one section at a time, saving your progress as you go.
Once you've completed the assessment, you'll be ranked as beginner, beginner /intermediate, or intermediate/advanced in each category based on your answers to the questions. PPAedu then uses these rankings to provide recommendations of videos to watch from our course library that will help advance your photography knowledge. Talk about taking the guess work out of the equation!
You can also reassess (either a single section or all of them at once) at any time as your skills progress to get fresh course recommendations. While it's not required for PPA members to take the assessment before watching videos, we recommend you do so that you can build your own educational guide!
