PPAS Membership is open to professional photographers and individuals / organizations associated with the field of professional photography.


Joining our ranks as a PPAS member will put a wealth of resources in your reach for your photographic career – from professional equipment support to the industry knowledge and wisdom from older, more established peers.

Being a part of this association is more than just bringing benefits to your business. Individually we are small, but here we are committed to form a strong collective voice that is striving to establish a sustainable and thriving professional photography community, imbuled with good working protocols and ethics for both us and clients, in Singapore and also the rest of the world.

Potential member candidates will be interviewed by 2 or more committee members, so as to ensure that qualified members are capable of delivering a consistent quality of work and also sufficiently equipped to run a sustainable business with integrity and professionalism.
