Inspiring the leaders of professional photography in San Diego County

The Professional Photographers of San Diego County exists to assist its members in achieving their professional and artistic goals, to promote public awareness of the profession and to advance the making of images in all of its disciplines as an art, a science and a visual recorder of history.

Professional Photographers of San Diego County is an association that provides its membership, made up of professional photographers, and those who aspire to be such, with educational programs focused on the craft, science and business of photography.

As an association, we strive to promote technical excellence, standards of professionalism, expression of creativity and passion for the art of photography.

In conjunction with our parent organization Professional Photographers of America and our state affiliate Professional Photographers of California, we support achieving professional goals, challenge members to strive for photographic excellence, and set professional, ethical, and business standards so that our members become leaders in the field of professional photography.

From the President

We, as the PPSDC Board, are going to provide our members with a Business Track this coming year. We will have meetings with speakers who are Certified Professional Photographers and workshops to help our members get their business licenses, insurance, and other legal necessities in order, as well as marketing and self-promotion with websites and social media. We’ll explore opportunities in commercial photography, too, to include landscape, real estate, art, food, and product photography, as well as photojournalism. And we’ll have some of the more traditional workshops with posing, lighting and other portrait types of work.

We are a completely volunteer organization and we cannot achieve all we hope to do without your help. As members, you can share your personal interests with the board and/or committee members to help shape our programming and Safari outings this coming year.

My hope is that our current members and everyone who joins us this year will learn something new and have most, if not all, of their expectations met. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
