Founded in 1954, the Dallas Professional Photographers Association’s mission is to provide the best networking and educational opportunities for skills improvement to local professional and aspiring photographers. We are an active guild with more than 200 members representing all levels of professional experience and photographic interests, and we are one of the largest guilds in the nation.

Our monthly meetings feature acclaimed speakers covering a wide range of topics of interest to professional photographers to help our members learn and grow. In addition to our featured speaker, we have valuable vendor partners who showcase their products and services, a physical Print Competition, Swap Meets, Skills roundtable discussions, recognition of member achievements, and fellowship time to connect with other photographers.

In addition to our monthly meetings, we also host full-day Workshops featuring a selection of our speakers, a two-day annual seminar called Little Red Schoolhouse, Mock Print Competition, Member2Member classes, Happy Hours, and a Holiday Awards Banquet.

Dallas PPA is more than just a group of photographers. We are a family that takes care of each other. We are a place where photographers come to build life-long relationships and be part of something special.
