In 1984, the Twin Cities Professional Photographers Association was born. Its main purpose was in educating its members in the craft of professional photography. Obtaining both national and local speakers on various topics to improve the skills in lighting techniques, equipment operation, posing, composition and graphic design. Our efforts as an association is to give our members the tools to create timeless images for their customers.

Our Association also has a great network within its membership where our members share ideas, techniques and offer help when help is needed by another member.
