The PPSA Fellowship program is a means of rewarding those individuals who have given freely of their time and talents in service to their fellow members. Many members care about the success of others within the guild, and through fellowship, promote the success of fellow photographers. It also encourages those members who have volunteered their time in the past to continue to do so. We also host an annual Christmas party and other social events.


One of the best ways a photographer can grow as an artist is through image competition.  By participating in our local monthly image competition, it will help ease your nerves and feel things out.  You will receive a constructive critique from an IPC or state-level juror, increasing your chances for success at the next level. Enjoy this member benefit and become a better photographer, making your work more salable.


Our monthly meetings bring photographers, of all skill levels, together for an evening of photographic education, print competition, and networking. PPSA brings in amazing speakers from across the country to share their knowledge and success with our membership. Programs include sales and marketing, lighting, seniors, sports, weddings, post production and much more.


PPSA recognizes and acknowledges the benefits of continuing education. The best photography school in the nation is the Texas School of Professional Photography, held once a year. This school is an entire week of learning, laughing, and fellowship. PPSA is proud to award four full tuition scholarships, valued at almost $600 each to qualifying members. All raffle ticket sales are placed into the PPSA Scholarship Fund and distributed at the annual awards banquet.


Each month, PPSA offers a free educational workshop or presentation related to photography. These one hour classes cover topics such as  lighting, photo editing, compositing, tethering, and much more. There are no fees or costs to attend PhotoU classes as it is provided as a member benefit.


The PPSA is an affiliate member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), as well as the Texas Professional Photographers Association (TPPA).  We support both parent organizations and encourage photographers of all levels to join these affiliates.


Founded in 1968, PPSA is an Affiliate of the Professional Photographers of America. We represent all levels of professional experience and photographic interest. Our purpose is to provide a dynamic atmosphere where members can grow and learn, as well as stay up with current trends in the industry.

PPSA has an amazing lineup of speakers for this year.  If you are an active or aspiring photographer in San Antonio or the surrounding area, join us.
