Arizona Professional Photographers Association

AzPPA is a non-profit organization for aspiring and professional photographers in Arizona to foster learning in a friendly and sharing environment for the purpose of advancing photography as an art and profession since 1951. We are affiliated with the Professional Photographers Of America (PPA), the country's oldest and largest professional photography association which dates back to 1869.

Our membership consists of photographers from all backgrounds and experience levels, from those just starting out in their photographic careers to well-seasoned Master Photographers. Although a majority of our members are wedding and portrait photographers, our membership also represents landscape, architectural and commercial photography. Every AzPPA member is committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards in our industry.

Learn about adding boudoir's classy cousin to your studio offerings. The pin-up lifestyle has a cult following with modern women - be it the romance of an era past, the rockabilly revitalization, or flattery of posing for larger ladies. Pin-ups are here to stay!

Learn the basics in this demonstrated workshop. We will look at pin-up styles, lighting, posing and coaching for photographers. Learn what to look for in a make-up artist, as well as what you need to know to add pin-ups to your product line.
