Networking is the best way to meet other photographers and to improve your business via recommendations from other professionals in your industry. Since professional photography can be a rather individualized field, it can be hard to find that sense of community... but that's why PPA created theLoop, an exclusive social network only for pro photographers!
theLoop is where hundreds of discussions happen daily on tons of photography topics, including gear, education, best 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!
Here are a few recent discussions on theLoop:
