The Dallas Professional Photographers Association ( DPPA ) was founded in 1954 to provide professional photographers a means for improving their skills through networking and educational opportunities.   As of 2011, it has grown to over 160 members who represent all levels of experience and photographic interests.

Our monthly meetings feature a different speaker each month talking about subjects of interest to professional photographers. In addition to the speaker, our vendors have tables set up showing their products and it’s an opportunity to network and learn from your fellow professional photographers. We also have a print and album competition. Print and album competition is a great way to learn how to better your photography. You must be a member to participate in the competition.
