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.
As we begin this unprecedented time in the world, it is more important than ever that we share information.
Every week, APA hosts OPEN TALK for photographers and those in our industry to connect with each other in an online forum that provides call in, video, and chat.
We also have a section for key links and resources here:
Additionally we wanted to provide a forum for photographers to share information that can be helpful to other photographers.
