American Photographic Artists (APA) began as Advertising Photographers of America in 1981 when a group of professional photographers working in the advertising industry bonded together to address challenges facing their industry.
Over the years, APA has expanded its broad industry reach to photographers and image-makers worldwide. With a culture that promotes a spirit of mutual cooperation, sharing and support, APA provides essential business resources to help its members achieve their professional and artistic goals.
