Super 1 Day Photography Workshops

For two weeks in May, dozens of studios across the country will invite attendees to join daily workshops featuring portrait and wedding photography, posing and lighting, digital retouching and workflow, and sales and marketing strategies. It's a chance you won't want to miss—a full day of photography education brought to you by fellow professional photographers. All photographic classes will be held May 9-23, 2016, so you'll be able to find one that fits your educational needs and your schedule!

Register for a $99 Super 1 Day class online by May 3, 2016. After May 3rd, registration must be done on-site (space permitting) for $120. Browse the class lists below to get started!

Our Super 1 Day participants vary in their specialties and locations, but they all seem to agree on one thing: Super 1 Day is one of the best and easiest ways to join your peers for an excellent learning experience!

  • "It is so nice to have great teachers and such a fantastic learning environment in my own city! I feel so enlightened leaving this class."
  • "The hands-on experience was just what I needed. I'm walking away with loads of information!"
  • "I loved the small class size. I had multiple opportunities to ask (and receive quality answers!) from my instructor."
  • "This is the best opportunity for peer-to-peer instruction in the industry!"

And remember: PPA members receive one service merit for each class they attend.
PPA Membership not required to participate.

Note: Spring 2016 registration cancellations made by April 25, 2016 before 5:00pmET will receive a refund minus a $25 administration fee. There are no refunds after that date. There is a $20 service fee for all returned checks.
