  • Super①Day Photography Workshops

    Twice a year, 100+ locations each time!
    Professional development is key to your success as a small business owner and as a photographer. That's why twice a year, over 230 photo workshops are held across the country as photographers open their studio doors to help you become a better photographer or business owner. That’s the premise of the Super①Day photography workshops!

    Super①Day classes run for two weeks, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. They allow PPA members and non-members alike to hone their skills and to better the photography industry. Sign up for one and you'll get the opportunity to take daily workshops covering subjects like:

    • Portrait, wedding, landscape, and commercial photography
    • Posing and lighting
    • Digital retouching and workflow
    • Sales and marketing for photographers and more!
    All photographic classes will be held on May 6-20, 2019 so you'll be able to find one that fits your educational needs and your schedule!
