Australian Institute of Professional Photography membership benefits

Since joining the Australian Institute of Professional Photography AIPP in March this year, I've really enjoyed some of benefits of becoming a member.

The Continuing Development Program has been of particular interest, and being able to access content online that is aimed at assisting members to further developing professional skills is a brilliant idea.

It's been inspiring to watch the keynote address by Darren Jew, where he shares his personal photographic experiences and relates various aspects of his business.

The AIPP Decathlons are bright and breezy. Great snippets of information by award-awinning photographers presented in a most entertaining manner.


Since joining the AIPP, I've had the pleasure to view some brilliant photography at the Victoria Professional Photography Awards. I visited the AIPP headquarters in Box Hill on Tuesday April 18 to watch the judging of the Travel and Landscape photography categories. Stunning imagery, and the comments provided by the judging panel were insightful.

As an Accredited Member, the benefits include professional photography magazines including:
  • The Working Pro Magazine
  • Better Photography Magazine
  • Better Digital Magazine

A couple of weeks ago I received the Canon AIPP APPA book, which is a premium style book featuring award-winning images from the 2011 Australian Professional Photography Awards. Talk about stunning imagery, it is a magnificent publication showcasing the best photography from professional photographers. Just browsing through the book inspired me to go out for a personal photoshoot in my local area to photograph the colours of autumn.
