Community Networks

What is a Community Network?

Community Networks are individual professional photography organizations that have chosen to partner with PPA. Membership in PPA is separate from membership with a Community Network. 

How & Why to Get Involved?

When you become active at a local level, you’ll see a world of opportunities open up to you. Opportunities like:

  • An expanded network: When you join a Community Network, you'll meet and interact with a host of professionals. They have diverse backgrounds and even more diverse skill sets. There are community networks worldwide, meaning there's no reason not to get involved in your area.
  • Education: One key to the success of any business owner is continued education and Community Networks offer that in spades. Not only will you have the opportunity to learn and grow from your peers, but you'll also be able to earn merits toward PPA degrees!
  • Fellowship: You love being a photographer. Now feel the energy that comes from being surrounded by professionals just as passionate about your craft as you are. As photographers, we often work alone. Getting involved in a Community Network lets you share with your peers the joys, the pains and everything in between that makes our field so unique!
