Professional Photographer of America Member

I am very proud to be a member of PPA (Professional Photographer's of America). When I first opened my studio joining PPA was one of the fist decisions I made.  Joining PPA has opened doors for me as well as challenged me with educational opportunities from Webimars to full day classes to seminars.  I honestly know I would not be where I am today were it not for PPA,  for they continue to encourage me to grow my craft and give me tools to grow my business. 

Among many benefits they provide me the Indemnification Trust, a full-time copyright affairs staff, crucial business information and much, much more.

But my favorite PPA benefit?  Friendships! (stay tune for my next blog on this one benefit)  Seriously I have met some wonderful people in the industry through PPA.  People who spur me on in my craft.  People who support me and lend a hand.  I gotta tell you, this industry is getting overcrowded (in my opinion) and sometimes can be very cut throat but I have never felt this with PPA members. We are a supportive bunch of professionals who simply wish to raise the photography bar to the status it once was.  This is clear in our code of Ethics. 

" [I] agree to strive at all times to upgrade and improve my knowledge and skill of professional photography, marketing and related areas.  In all my dealings with users of photography and the general public I will: Strive to present all photographic services in surroundings and in a manner which reflects the highest levels of professionalism.  2. Use the highest levels of honesty, professionalism and integrity."


"4. In all dealings with fellow professional photographers, students and others who aspire to be professional photographers, I shall share the knowledge and skill of professional photography.  5. Support efforts for and assist int he education of all interested persons and the general public in the art and science of professional photography"

So here I make my agreement with PPA public.  *right hand raised* I, Xiomara Gard solemnly swear to uphold the PPA code of ethics each and everyday to make a better photographic world! :)
