FAQs about Joining PPA
Q: What kinds of membership do you offer?
A: Professional Active membership and Aspiring Photographer membership.
Q: What’s the difference between the two types of membership?
A: Professional Active membership is an individual, full membership for the professional photographer. It gives you access to all the benefits, including the online referral database, Find-A-Photographer.
Aspiring Photographer is a membership category for an individual preparing to enter a career in photography, or a new “entry-level” professional. If you join this way, you will not be part of the online referral database, and you are limited to 2 years of membership in this category (after the 2 years are up, you can choose to join via the Professional Active category).
Q: How much is membership?
A: It depends on the type of membership you want, if you want to use the monthly credit card option, and whether or not you participate in the Indemnification Trust. (Indemnification Trust is a unique trust fund that covers you from unforeseen data losses or negligence cases. Visit the Benefits section to learn more.) The descriptions of price are in the downloadable applications.
