The Virginia Professional Photographers Association (VPPA) is made up of a diverse group of photographers interested in promoting and perfecting our photographic craft. We are passionate about our craft and we work together to inform, inspire and promote each other.
The VPPA fosters a spirit of cooperation among all members of the association. You will meet generous photographers who share their experiences, their solutions to problems and occasionally even their equipment. Our members pledge to assist and encourage their fellow professionals, so there is always someone for you to call for advice or assistance.
"VPPA is a great organization for professional photographers with an active business, but it's also great for the aspiring photographer who wants to be better at their craft. I joined VPPA as a business-owner; but after I retired from business, I stayed in VPPA because of the excellent photography education opportunities and for the camaraderie of the members. VPPA helps me be a better photographer."
