Run a Successful
If you’re serious about earning your main income as a professional photographer, then you must take advantage of what PPA can do for you!
Equipment insurance - Up to $15,000 of coverage available. Whether in the studio or off-site, at home or on the other side of the world, your PhotoCare Basic Equipment Insurance will be there to save the day in the event of a disaster.
Data loss protection - When those really bad days occur, PPA softens the blow by offering strong support to photographers with an active membership in the U.S. and Canada through PPA’s Indemnification Trust.
Dissatisfied client shield - Just as with data loss, the Indemnification Trust protects you if a client is unsatisfied and you need legal support. This unique coverage is a lifesaving benefit and comes included with the PPA Professional Active Membership. And because this is not insurance, your rates will never go up if you need to file a claim.
Online learning center with 1,100+ video tutorials - Members all over the world have access to multiple opportunities when it comes to learning and growing their photography craft and business skills. One-day events, online programs, vast libraries of training videos– we want photographers to succeed!
Photographers-only online community - Whether it’s online networking forums or engaging photographers all over the world through multiple social media platforms, face-to-face workshops, an annual conference, or monthly webinars, the PPA community will make sure that you never feel like you’re out there all alone!
Sample contracts, copyright kit - Drafting an agreement from scratch so you are protected takes expertise and time. That’s why members of PPA have access to a large library of ready-made contracts and other forms for them to use, edit, or compare.
Sales & marketing tools - Because consumers don't always understand the difference a professional photographer can make. And photographers don’t always understand what moves the needle for consumers to decide to pay for professional photography services. PPA created marketing tools for its members to tap into in order to improve their sales process, better justify their costs, up the quality of their photography, develop new products-and-services offerings, and market themselves
…and much more!
