Welcome to the Wisconsin Professional Photographers Association (WPPA)! We are now in our 120th year and I am extremely grateful to part of this amazing group of photographers and artists.
I would firstly like to thank my board, and committee chairs, for dedication and support. We are all in this together, and thats what I really love – the willingness, the comradery and the belief in the purpose of this organization.
If you’re looking to be a professional photographer, to learn and network with others who have been part of our group for many years, if you’re for a group of people that you can call friends, you have come to the right place. I have never found a group so willing to share with each other all aspects of photography, not just the technical, but the business, the art, and the love of it all. Fellowship is a huge part of our group and you can earn your degree by continuing to give back to the association.
The education aspect of this group is huge. We have National Speakers every year at out Conventions and its mind-blowing, the talent we have on a continuing basis. We also have shoot outs, which are hands-on experiences with models and mentors that can really help the beginner photographer and also the experienced members with new technology and modern approaches.
We are so excited for this upcoming year! We appreciate all input from our membership if there is anything you would like to see change or grow.
This year our Fall 2-day event will be held in Madison on Nov 1-2nd 2015, and our Spring Convention will be on March 12-14th. 2016 in Wisconsin Dells, and keep an eye out for a one day event in August too!! I hope to see you all there.
