Why Join NCPP?

NCPP was started in 1998 with a small group of Pro­fes­sional Pho­tog­ra­phers that wanted to help each other grow their busi­nesses and craft in pho­tog­ra­phy. The groups focus was to develop friend­ship and to share knowl­edge so that each mem­ber was suc­cess­ful in the busi­ness of photography.

Things have changed in the pho­tog­ra­phy world since then with the dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion, the eco­nomic swings, influx of Meetup groups and new pho­tog­ra­phers in the market.

What hasn’t changed in NCPP is the cal­iber of Pro­fes­sional Pho­tog­ra­phers that join the orga­ni­za­tion to grow their busi­ness, craft and will­ing­ness to help and share with oth­ers. We offer more than just a mem­ber­ship we offer friends for life and a com­mu­nity of high cal­iber local Pro­fes­sional Pho­tog­ra­phers. We also wel­come the bud­ding Aspir­ing Pho­tog­ra­pher to come join and learn with us.

Ben­e­fits of membership

Value far beyond this list of rea­sons to become an NCPP mem­ber is the oppor­tu­nity to be spend­ing time with your peers, shar­ing ideas and expe­ri­ences, learn­ing from and teach­ing each other.
