Welcome to MDPPA
The Maryland Professional Photographers Association, the official Maryland state affiliate of the Professional Photographers
One of the biggest questions I have received is “Does the new CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security) help the self-employed photographer?” From everything I have read, the answer is, “Yes!”
-There is a delay while the system is upgraded to accept additional types of workers.
-You need to apply online for this help.
-I don't know the specifics or the amount of money an individual or business will receive, but there is help out there for you during the COVID-19 outbreak.
If you click on our graphic above, you will find a list of helpful links for business and wellness resources and information, that we hope will guide you through the next few months. Check back regularly for updates.
MDPPA is doing everything we can to bring you content as the state of Maryland is under a "Stay at Home" order. We are working with our speakers and print competition judges to offer on-line education (think CreativeLive, or can we call it Creative Maryland?). We ask you for a little patience while we put this together. Our broadcasts may not be perfect, but we are doing things we've never attempted in the past.
MDPPA is your community and we are here for you! We will continue to plan ZOOM calls so we can gather together virtually, share information and resources, and keep in touch. Please reach out to other members, we are all here to help each other. We are in this together. We are MDPPA!!
Stay safe and wash your hands!
