JPPG offers many learning opportunities that will help you grow your business, improve your photographic technique and really get to know like-minded professionals in your area.

Membership Benefits

Education: Many educational opportunities throughout the year, including mini-seminars, full-day events with top photographers, in addition to the speakers at our monthly meetings. Be sure to check our calendar of events!

Monthly Meetings: Join other like-minded professional photographers on the fourth Tuesday of each month for education, a People’s Choice image 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 at least once a year. Entering on a local level can help you to receive feedback on images 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!

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 dozens of 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!
