I am more than a Photographer... I am a Master Photographer.

Established in 1952, the Master Photographers Association (MPA) is the only association for qualified professional photographers. We are one of the longest standing photographic associations in British history. We care about our members’ photographic journey of excellence and we understand your needs and value them too.

As the UK’s leading qualification body exclusively for the professional wedding, portrait and commercial photographer the MPA encourage professional photographers of all levels to join the Association.

The Master Photographers Association is run by photographers for photographers who have many years of experience behind them. Our team is committed to sharing its knowledge and experiences to help guide you on your photographic journey.

With a qualification system designed to promote continual professional development, the MPA are recognised leaders in setting the standards of professional photography today. 

Offering a wide variety of membership benefits and a tiered membership system, the MPA strives to develop both the professional photographer as well as the aspiring photographer just embarking on their fledgling career. We believe that by educating the ambitious professional, we set the standards for the future of professional photography as well as the present.

We offer a benefit package and mentoring programmes as well as inspirational and motivational regional and national seminars, business building and marketing support. We offer a holistic approach in our ethos of support to the professional photographer that we continually strive to improve.

With over 60 years in the professional photography arena, the MPA prides itself in developing some of the industry’s leading photographers of today.

Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) was founded in 1978 to serve the needs of wedding photographers, then known as the “weekend warriors” – an often neglected segment of the industry. Since our first convention and trade show in 1980, we have grown into one of the largest events in the trade. WPPI 2014 drew over 12,000 attendees and 350 exhibitors and embrace photographers from all genres, including portraiture, fine art, photojournalism, commercial, video, and advertising.

The WPPI values and ecosystem are built on the premise of developing one’s mind, body, and soul through the lens of photography and filmmaking. Our conferences, events, and contests are meant to promote growth and a community in which members learn from each other.
In 2013, we were brought under The Photo Group umbrella, owned by Emerald Expositions, also home to Rangefinder, our sister publication, as well as Photo District News, PDNedu, Shutterlove and The PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo.
