The MPPA provides a place where Maine professional photographers can gain support from their peers and grow in their craft. We offer monthly meetings taught by top industry professionals, a series of Maine Mentor Workshops taught by some of Maine’s best photographers on a variety of topics, an annual convention and exposition with professional print competition, and most especially, the opportunity to earn professional credentials in the field of photography that are recognized nationally and will help set you apart.

Networking
The MPPA offers an opportunity to network with fellow professionals, and receive and give information that is critical to the success of a photographic business, in any economy. Our network also provides a forum to meet new people, exchange ideas and share our common love of photography.
Education
Each year, the MPPA invites nationally recognized, industry experts, who are leaders in their field, to conduct workshops and lectures for our members in the wedding, portrait and commercial communities. Previous speakers have included David Beckstead, Hanson Fong and Eddie Tapp.
Marketing
The MPPA helps to market their members and put them in touch with clients who are seeking professional photographers. Every MPPA member has a profile on our website that includes their contact info, a link to their photography website and sample portfolio images. Additionally, the MPPA website offers potential clients the ability to search for photographers by name, or by speciality, further increasing the chances you will be found.
Professional Credentials
The MPPA offers its members the unique opportunity to earn professional credits and merits within the Professional Photographers of America. Merits can be earned through service, education, and by demonstrating photographic skill through print competition. Many merits earned in the MPPA, can help contribute to national recognition and honors from the Professional Photographers of America, including Master of Photography, and Photographic Craftsmen.

We invite you to attend your first monthly meeting for free and hope to welcome you soon!
