Photographic education is fundamental to the Young Photographers' Alliance. In addition to our Mentoring Programme, we offer a number of additional educational opportunities.

YPA Members'-only Area

At YPA we provide real world, practical, hands-on education and advice. We have developed our Members' site to reach as many young photographers as possible. Our Members' Area includes crucial industry standards information, supplying YPA Members with material and advice on intellectual property, model / property releases, best practice requirements for stock photography, and standard quotation templates for commission work. The Members' Area also provides inside advice from leading industry professionals. We post videos of top photographers from a range of disciplines, sharing tips on anything from the necessary gear to how to market effectively. We also periodically host live chats with respected editors and photographers, giving our Members the opportunity to speak directly to experienced professionals.

In addition to our information, advice, and networking areas, the YPA site also provides a list of discounts that we've negotiated for members only. Here members can find the details of our discounts with leading photographic suppliers / labs, associations, industry magazines, etc..

YPA Masterclasses, Seminars and Workshops:

In the future, YPA plans to host masterclasses, seminars and workshops with renowned photographers, editors and creatives.
