Call for Instructors: Give Back by Teaching a Photography Workshop

Share your experience and expertise by volunteering to instruct a PPA Photography Workshop. These peer-to-peer educational events provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity to share your knowledge, expand your professional network, and give back to the PPA community. If you're passionate about a topic, this is a great way to help other photographers understand it better while delving deeper into the topic yourself.

PPA’s Spring Photography Workshops are designed to fit any photographer’s educational needs with topics as wide-ranging as posing, lighting, digital retouching, sales, and marketing strategies. They are bi-annual, learning extravaganzas taught by professional photographers (like you!) for fellow professional photographers. Volunteers who teach a Photography Workshop are a critical part of creating a skilled and cohesive photographic industry. After all, helping one another learn and grow is what makes the PPA community so special. 

Here’s what you earn for teaching a Photography Workshop: 

  • 2 speaking merits per workshop taught: you can only teach a maximum of two per PPA Workshop season
  • Network and connect with other photographers in your area
  • Expand your own knowledge on the topic you teach
  • Earn $50/per attendee when you have 8 or more people and you have a PPA degree/certification

Although this is a volunteer opportunity, all workshops are required to be authentic and should aim to provide a dynamic educational experience. Spring Workshops will take place on May 3-17, 2021. Applications for Spring Workshop instructors are now open until February 5, 2021.
