The photography community may share many of the same passions for capturing and preserving memories, but we are all unique individuals on different journeys. It’s for this exact reason that we created Faces of PPA—to showcase the diversity of our ever-growing photography family! We wanted a way to share the different experiences, specialties, and photography styles that make each of you unique. We also know that as professional photographers, you spend most of your time behind the camera. We believe it’s important to hop in front of the camera every once in a while to showcase your own unique personality and style!
Maybe you’ve considered submitting your self-portrait and story to Faces of PPA but haven’t had the time. If you’re currently stuck at home and looking for a fun new project, consider taking some time to hop in front of the camera and create a unique portrait of yourself that highlights your talents as a photographer- you could even get your family involved to help out with this project! Your image should scream, “I’m a photographer,” so be sure to include your camera and any other photography elements that would convey this message. Need inspiration? Take a look at our Faces of PPA gallery as well as some previous portrait submissions below:

Your Faces of PPA profile can also be incorporated into your brand’s marketing materials and can be shared on your social media platforms. Your profile will feature your website and social media page so that anyone who sees it will know how to reach out and connect with you, not to mention that backlinks are always a great thing for your website’s SEO!
