Membership Benefits

Monthly Meetings: Join other like-minded professional photographers on the fourth Tuesday of each month for education, a People’s Choice mini-print competition, socializing and networking with other professionals in our industry.

Digital Image Competition: Put your photographic skills to the test by competing with other professionals in a Salon Image Competition held twice a year. Entering on a local level can help you to receive feedback on prints you may be considering entering at a state, regional or national level.

People’s Choice: Challenge fellow photographers at each monthly meeting to see which images our members pick as favorites!

Newsletters and Web Site: Our newsletter, The Prolog, and web site are wonderful resources that are available for you to learn more about our Guild, member news, upcoming events, and so much more! New newsletters are available online every other month and archives are available on our web site. Paper copies can be picked up at our meetings.

A Network of Photographers: This like-minded group understands that we all benefit when the photography industry prospers and will go out of their way to help their fellow photographer in need. If a member is injured, ill or needs some assistance, advice, training or just needs to borrow a piece of equipment they have the support of more than 100 other local JPPG members they can rely on for help!

Mini Seminars: Mini classes are held at different times throughout the year and are available to our members. Class topics vary from year to year, but most are filled up quickly!
