Super 1 Day is here!!! Well, it's May 8-22, 2017 but your friends at PPA are already deep into planning the next and subsequent rounds of day-long photography workshops....and we need your help. PPA needs your images! 

We'd love to have images of the class-- the various locations, the hands-on experience, and the camaraderie between you photographers would be a great way to showcase Super 1 Day to those who have never participated before, those who are on the fence, and for those interested in teaching or taking a class in the future. 

Please take and send along to us any images you feel comfortable sharing. We're looking for photos that depict your class, your craft, and your creativity for Super 1 Day! These images would potentially be used to help promote and advertise for future Super 1 Days, so please be sure to submit images that you would be comfortable having appear on social media.

You can send your photo files to PPA's Education Coordinator at Lbradley@ppa.com.

Drones are the newest and greatest way to diversify your photography business, and offer your clients innovative angles and photographs. But first, you have to know what you're doing. Understanding how to legally, efficiently, and correctly incorporate drones into your business will make a difference in its success or failure.

There are numerous resources available that are credible, and guarantee you get the best education about drones. From in-person Super 1 Day photography workshops to webinar sessions online, there are hundreds of ways to get in the know about drones. To help you get started, here are a few suggestions about upcoming courses and events holding drone-info sessions. 

• Airborne Over Texas is a class organized by the Texas Professional Photographers Association and is all about teaching drone users how to use drones for good and how to pass the FAA's Part 107 portion of the exam. You can also expect a drone demonstration from instructor Justin Moore!

• What's Up With Drones?: This session is part of the Super 1 Day series, this upcoming May, and is all about keeping you legal while using your drone and getting you prepared for the FAA UAG test. Staying legal is the first step to using drones for your business, so this class is a must! If you're in the Oklahoma area, check out this class!

• Thinking About Adding a Drone to Your Photography Business?: If you are considering using drones in our photography business, this class is for you. This course will discuss FAA regulations and testing and available resources, equipment cost and investment cost, insurance and opportunities for drone photography. It is part of the Super 1 Day photography workshops to be held this May and will be held twice that month in order to accommodate everyone who wants to learn.

• Drones-FAA Part 107 Prep Course: There are two dates for this Super 1 Day course. It will teach you the rules and regulations required by the FAA to successfully pass the Part 107 FAA exam and make you a licensed drone pilot. This workshop will help you review the five main areas you will be tested on, and then take a practice exam to see how you'll fair on the real thing!

These are just a few of the sessions available for your drone education. Check out PPA.com/Drones to get the latest and greatest information in drone education from PPA and if you're curious about the Super 1 Day Photography Workshops coming up this May, there are more than 200 classes across the USA!

They say that the influence of a good teacher can never be erased. If teaching others has always been a passion of yours, or you've always wanted to give it a try, Super 1Day 2017 is your chance to leave that lasting impact! 

Super1Day is a two-week-long event that builds the photographic and business skills of professional photographers. Classes covering a wide range of topics are held across the country and are led by knowledgeable professional photographers. In 2017, Super1Day will take place May 8-22, but not without those aforementioned knowledgeable instructors. That's where you come in! 

Super1Day instructors volunteer to share their photography and business knowledge with class attendees. Instructors can teach alone or with another PPA member by their side. PPA handles all aspects of Super1Day attendee registration including confirmation emails, class packets, and even event promotion. The rest is up to you! Course instructors determine the class topic, location, format, and size.

Signing up as a Super1Day instructor comes with some pretty awesome benefits too. Instructors receive two merits toward their PPA degree, simply for having at least one person attend their class. In addition, instructors with their Photographic Craftsman or Master of Photography degrees will receive $50 per student after the 7th registered class attendee. Aside from these more tangible perks, you'll get teaching experience, an expanded network, and the satisfaction of helping others achieve their goals.

Instructor registration for Super1Day Spring 2017 is already open, but don't wait, as applications are due by January 20! We've even provided you with instructor FAQs and resources to help complete your transition to teacher. By signing up to be a Super1Day instructor, you're helping others while also helping yourself. We call that a win-win!

Super 1 Day was a big success this past October, and PPA is already prepping to do it again in spring 2017. After all, this unique opportunity to learn photography tips, tricks, techniques, and best practices from fellow professionals and in-person, is something that photographers from across the country seem  to take advantage of more and more. Over 250 instructors taught in almost every state -- 40 classes were held in Texas alone, making it the most popular Super 1 Day state! 
As we prepare for the May 8-22, 2017 session of Super 1 Day, PPA is looking for more instructors! There are many benefits to teaching a class (or two!), including digging deeper into your subject area, elevating the industry by improving our profession overall, and even earning two merits towards your PPA Photographic Degree!

Instructor applications close January 20, 2017, so make sure you filled out yours completely by then. Be sure to invite your pro photographer friends to apply as well!
