Magazine Shoots, Work-For-Hire, and Copyright and Other Hot Photography Topics on theLoop

Networking is the best way to meet other photographers, get advice from experienced professionals, and to improve your business through recommendations. Since photography can be an individualized industry, it can be hard to get out of your comfort zone and befriend other photographers. That’s why PPA created theLoop, an exclusive social network only for pro photographers!

theLoop is a friendly, open community in which you can share your struggles and stories. Hundreds of discussions happen every day covering topics including gear, education, business practices, and everything in between! You have to be a member of PPA to take advantage of theLoop, but the PPA membership is only $27.92 a month and comes with a whole range of other benefits!
