Troy Community Center

Welcome !!

The DPPA is one the largest AND oldest professional photographic associations in Michigan. We offer the aspiring, the accomplished, and the seasoned professional the opportunity to expand their business and photographic knowledge as well as hone their photographic skills and techniques to help them grow and succeed.


The DPPA accomplishes this with monthly meetings featuring cutting edge speakers from all around the country, a challenging set of photographic competitions, and a professional vendor presence offering information and assistance on all the latest and greatest equipment improvements and products, and services demanded by consumers today.


All of this education and opportunity is encased in a friendly open sharing environment where members make lifelong friendships and mutual beneficial affiliations and collaborations. This is not the DPPA of old. We are a progressive expanding welcoming group of professionals of many levels that have joined and meet to accomplish together what is almost impossible as an individual today.


In today's economic and rapidly changing photographic profession you can't afford not be a member of this dedicated group whose' primary purpose is to offer each member the opportunity and help to excel while maintaining the highest ethical and professional standards in and for the profession.


Come join us at a meeting. Talk to our new and older members. Learn firsthand the real and substantial opportunities and successes our members have experienced. Check out our speaker line up. Consider for the price of dinner once a month you can be learning and exposed to the very best in the industry. How can you pass up an opportunity to do that? The DPPA where your success is our success.
