Membership is available to all serious photographers, professional and aspiring. MOPPA provides a place for Missouri photographers to gain peer support and grow their craft.

We offer monthly programs taught by top industry professionals, a series of Mentor Workshops taught by some of Missouri’s best photographers on a variety of topics, an annual conference with
professional image competition, and, most especially, the opportunity to earn professional credentials in the field of photography that will help set you apart.



MOPPA offers an opportunity to network with fellow professionals and receive and give information critical to a photographic business's success in any economy. Our network also provides a forum to meet new people, exchange ideas and share our common love of photography.


Each year, the MOPPA invites nationally recognized industry experts, who are leaders in their field, to conduct workshops and lectures for our members.


The MOPPA helps market its members and puts them in touch with clients seeking professional photographers. Every MOPPA member has a profile on our website that includes their contact info and a link to their photography website. Additionally, the MOPPA website offers potential clients the ability to search for photographers by name or by specialty, increasing their chances of being found.

Professional Credentials

MOPPA offers its members the unique opportunity to earn professional credits and merits in both the state organization and the Professional Photographers of America. Merits can be earned through service and education.
