Did you know The Professional Photographers of North Carolina (PPNC) is one of the nation’s largest associations of professional photographers, offering our members seminars, professional photographic schools, as well as some of the best networking opportunities in the country? Our organization is made up of three (3) regions (Eastern, Central, and Western), each of which represents approximately 1/3 of the geographically contiguous PPNC members. Each region hosts a two-day seminar each year, with nationally-known, as well as regional and local speakers.
Our mission is dedicated to advancing photographic imaging as an art, as well as a profession. We do that by innovating and collaborating within our community of creatives. We also reward the work of the people in our org who are showing up and for the art, the profession, and one another.
PPNC Degree Program
Our association’s degree program was established to provide:
