Hire an APA Pro

APA has launched a new & improved search feature which will help our members get more work: Hire An APA Pro ­ —  an online portal for finding professional photographers, crew and assistants. 

Photo editors and art producers trust APA.
Your membership has real value.
We want to promote you to them.
But first, you need to be searchable on the APA website.
As an APA member, we invite you to now log on and complete your public profile. All location data has been cleared, so please begin by setting a geo-location for yourself. It doesn’t need to match your mailing address, only where you want clients to associate your area. Hire An APA Pro is searchable by type (such a Photographer), specialty, name or location. The images you upload should be tagged with a specialty that reflects the image.

The number of images you can upload and specialties you can tag will be based on your membership level.

Membership Level           Number of Images / Specialties listed
Leader                                                            10
Professional                                                    8
Associate                                                        5
Supporter                                                        3
Contributor                                                      1

Search results will showcase members by their level of APA Membership – Leader first, then Professional; Associate; Supporter; Contributor. 

Want to appear higher up in a search, or have more images and specialties? Upgrade your membership level.

Links: After you have input links to your site and your social media accounts, please look yourself up by name, and check that all the links work. Check here.

Hire An APA Assistant:  Photographers who are also working as Photo Assistants can be showcased as both.  Under specialties select “I am also an assistant” and follow the prompts. 

Follow these simple steps to complete your profile:

  1. Log in to your account
  2. Click on “My APA”
  3. In the “My APA” menu, click on “Set My Location” and follow the instructions to set your desired location
  4. In the “My APA” menu, click on “Manage Specialties” and ensure that your desired specialties are checked…next
  5. In the “My APA” menu, click on “Upload Gallery” and follow the instructions to upload an image for each of your specialties. (Make sure to click “Save Gallery” before leaving!)

That’s It! 

Now creatives can find you as we promote this service to buyers nationwide.
