It’s funny on how fast time flies. It seems like I just joined ASMP and then later PPA. I had a bit of time off from both groups as someone stole my credit card info. This took awhile to fix. Never fun. Both of these groups are very big and they do a lot to help professional photographers out. ASMP has been the biggest help to me. Mostly because of the great chapter in my area. I’ve done many events that ASMP has done. All have been great. Great people to for the most part too. PPA I’ve done less with but they produce a nice magazine and have insurance plans and a indemnification trust. I hope I never have to use it but you never know. Now I just need to redo my info on the sites to have my new work up and I should be good. I would encourage new photographers to join ASMP and PPA.
