We hope you will consider joining the Missouri Professional Photographers Association and become involved in Missouri’s largest organized group of professional photographers!
MOPPA provides a place where Missouri photographers can gain support from their peers and grow in their craft.
We offer monthly programs taught by top industry professionals, a series of Mentor Workshops taught by some of Missouri’s best photographers on a variety of topics, an annual conference with professional image 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.
MOPPA 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.
Each year, the MOPPA invites nationally recognized, industry experts, who are leaders in their field, to conduct workshops and lectures for our members.
The MOPPA helps to market their members and put them in touch with clients who are seeking professional photographers. Every MOPPA member has a profile on our website that includes their contact info and a link to their photography website. Additionally, the MOPPA website offers potential clients the ability to search for photographers by name, or by specialty, further increasing the chances they will be found.
MOPPA 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 MOPPA can help contribute to national recognition and honors from the Professional Photographers of America, including Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsmen.
