Taking Steps to
Inspire, Equip and
Educate Today's Photographers

Education is the key to PPW!  

We have several events yearly that offer incredible speakers on various topics to help the professional photographer.

The Spring Educational Conference is around April and provides the association's members an event to come together to enjoy old and new friends. Before this event our Annual Print Competition takes place. Hired judges are brought in to judge and critique our images with the 12 Elements of Merited Print as a guide. 

We hold another event around October to give a stimulating break from the photographer's busy season of High School seniors and families, for example. 

During the year, each PPW District holds meetings four times a year in the their area. To learn about these events besides here on our website, The Washington Photographer Journal comes out four times a year. Within the pages of the journal, you will also learn about the workings of PPW and informational articles about our industry. 


Involvement improves your business. Here are a few ways to do this:
