Oregon Professional Photographers Association

Providing professional development for serious photographers

Merit Images from our November 2016 Competition


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
