We're the Oregon Professional Photographers Association, and we provide professional development for serious photographers.

We like to think of OPPA as being Serious Fun!


  • offers workshops and other education to help members become better photographers
  • provides resources for our members to develop sustainable, profitable, and ethical photography businesses
  • hosts formal (PPA-style) image competitions to provide constructive, educational feedback to improve our members' skill as image makers
  • offers social gatherings for photographers to network and build camaraderie

We're a state affiliate for the Professional Photographers of America, and PPA members can gain even more by also being members of OPPA.

If you’re a serious photographer in Oregon, we invite you to join us and take your photography endeavors to the next level.

OPPA is a State Affiliate of PPA
