Your Photography Community Can Lift You Up When You’re Feeling Down

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!

Do you ever get down and defeated as an artist trying to make a living pursuing photography? This Looper was having a down moment and vented to the community. What he got was a truly humbling dose of empathy and understanding.

Do you have clients that require an insurance certificate? Well, you’re in luck because PPA offers great insurance solutions through Lockton Affinity. Read Autumn’s response, and get protected today!

So as you see, theLoop is a great place for PPA members to connect with each other, share information or advice, get constructive criticism, and get help when needed. Become a PPA member, so you can “stay in the loop,” and if you already are, then head over to theLoop to see what everyone's buzzing about!
