Atlanta, GA—From October 6 to 20, photographers from coast to coast will open their studio doors to educate and inspire their peers as part of Super 1 Day—an educational initiative from Professional Photographers of America (PPA). These 129 classes in 37 states (plus Australia, Canada and Korea) will help PPA photographers and nonmembers better their photography and business skills.
Super 1 Day is a peer-to-peer photography learning program spread over a couple of weeks in May and October every year. To make Super 1 Day happen, PPA calls upon its members to volunteer to teach, “paying it forward,” and share their strategies and techniques with fellow photographers. The result is a more skilled and cohesive photography industry.
Super 1 Day will span portrait and wedding photography, posing and lighting, digital retouching and workflow, landscape and commercial photography, and sales and marketing strategies
Rather than bring everyone together at a single location, the semiannual events offer photographers around the country the opportunity to learn from their peers at a nearby professional studio. This experience gives participants useful knowledge from someone in their local market and helps develop personal and professional network systems that are vital for small business owners.
PPA membership is not required to attend Super 1 Day classes or workshops. All attendees receive a bonus pack that includes exclusive discounts and offers from several leading photographic companies.
Current PPA photographers earn one service merit for attending each workshop. These merits go toward earning PPA degrees—professional distinctions recognized by the industry that only the most dedicated photographers possess.
On-site registration for Super 1 Day photo workshops (space permitting) is $120. Registration and class information can be found online at PPA.com/Super1Day.
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is an international nonprofit association created by professional photographers for professional photographers. Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA has roots that date back to 1869. It assists over 27,000 members through protection, education and resources for their continued success. ppa.com
