Maryland's only Professional Trade Association Committed to the Artistic, Technical, Personal, and Business Success of the Professional Photographer
Welcome to MDPPA
The Maryland Professional Photographers Association, the official Maryland state affiliate of the Professional Photographers
Our monthly meetings take place at Oliver's Carriage House in Columbia, Maryland typically on the 4th Wednesday of the month, but until further notice we are presenting programming virtually. Please refer to the Education tab for dates, times, fees and location changes if any.
MDPPA is a State Affiliate of Professional Photographers of America (PPA). We are a separate membership organization, yet we are mutually beneficial.
There are many benefits to being a member of both MDPPA and PPA. Some of our programs offer Continuing Education Merits for PPA member attendees. PPA Member Speakers for our programs are eligible to receive speaker merits from PPA. Our print competition program is in association with PPA guidelines. You will find that MDPPA offers a wonderful community of colleagues, who share ideas and resources, education and experience. We look forward to our return to in-person meetings, and welcoming you with our hospitality! Until then we will meet you where you are, virtually!
