Super 1 Day Photography Workshops

For two weeks in May, dozens of studios across the country will invite attendees to join daily workshops featuring portrait and wedding photography, posing and lighting, digital retouching and workflow, and sales and marketing strategies. It's a chance you won't want to miss—a full day of photography education brought to you by fellow professional photographers. All photographic classes will be held May 4-18, 2015, so you'll be able to find one that fits your educational needs and your schedule!

Online registration closed April 28, but don't worry – many Super 1 Day courses still have a few slots remaining. You can register on-site for $120 (space permitting). Feel free to contact instructors directly with any questions or to confirm availability.

Our Super 1 Day participants vary in their specialties and locations, but they all seem to agree on one thing: Super 1 Day is one of the best and easiest ways to join your peers for an excellent learning experience!

  • "The hands-on experience was just what I needed. I’m walking away with loads of information!"
  • "This is the best opportunity for peer-to-peer instruction in the industry!"
  • "I feel inspired. I now have a vision for what I want to do and have found someone local who shares my vision!”
  • "The class size is cozy and comfortable—it definitely makes for a great learning environment!"

And remember: PPA members receive one service merit for each class they attend.
PPA Membership not required to participate.
