Welcome to the Professional Photographers Guild of Houston

Founded in 1950,  PPGH is an Affiliate of the Professional Photographers of America and is one of the most active guilds in the country with over 200 members representing all levels of professional photography experience and photographic interest.  Our purpose is to provide a dynamic atmosphere where members can network with other members, learn from visiting speakers and learn the latest trends in the photography industry. We meet once a month to host a guest speaker program, have an image competition and network over a meal.  

PPGH has an All Star Lineup of speakers for 2019 as well monthly workshops.  Whatever your level of photography is currently, you will walk away from each speaker and workshop  with knowledge to help you improve your skills, business or meet a new friend. If you are an active photographer looking to advance your photography skills consider joining PPGH.

Senior Moments

Nov 19th

Learn how to navigate the Senior Portrait process, from marketing, shooting, and sales all the way to the delivery of the final product. Find out how to avoid the pitfalls specific to the Senior market, and get some tips and tricks useful for all genres of photography!

Jennifer will take you through each of the steps involved in a senior portrait session, from the initial contact, pre-consultation, photo shoot, and in person sales. She'll let you know what HAS and HAS NOT worked for her in the past, saving you from making the same mistakes. She is very excited to share some of her top tips and tricks on how to success- fully direct both seniors and their parents towards the best possible sale!

Jennifer's interest in photography grew out of a love of watching her beautiful daughter dance. By the time she figured out how to make great images of fast moving bodies crossing a dark stage, she was hooked. Through wonderful educational opportunities such as Texas School, she honed her craft and became a Certified Professional Photographer. After dipping her toe into several genres of photography, she settled into the portrait business, shooting families, babies,and especially high school seniors.

Image Competition

A part of growing as a photographer is challenging yourself. Image competition is a great way to learn how to improve your images and take it to new levels.

PPGH hosts a monthly image competition where you can enter up to two images a month and have Master Photographers provide you with feedback on your image(s). Many photographers who want to test out an image before submitting it to TPPA or IPC image contests, start here.

Remember that you are also earning PPGH Fellowship points with any image with an 80 or higher score! Who knows, you could be our next master photographer and judging PPGH image competitions.
