About

The Animal Image Makers conference was created as a means to serve the growing number of pet and animal photographers by offering top-notch photographic education along with the opportunity to network with peers and mentors working in the same field.  While other national conventions tend to offer one or two short seminars about pet photography, this conference is 100% about the animals and the business of photographing our four-legged friends.  Some of the top animal photography educators have been brought together to offer a one-of-a-kind experience.  This conference is hosted by TCPPA (Twin Cities Professional Photographer's Association), a PPA affiliate in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

 

Registration is limited to just 250 attendees, so be sure you reserve your space at this not-to-be-missed conference!

 

PPA Merits

Are you working on a PPA degree?  You've come to the right place! 

AIM is hosted by the Twin Cities Professional Photographer's Association, a PPA Affiliate, so PPA has approved the conference as a PPA Continuing Education opportunity!  All PPA members who attend the conference will receive a PPA Continuing Education merit. 

If you don't know what this means, look for the people wearing special PPA ribbons and ask - they'd be happy to tell you how you could earn one, too.
