Who on here is a member of NAPP? I have heard about both at some of the workshops I've attended but quite honsetly I wasn't really listening. Can anyone join this organization? I have been to their website and I am interested in their mentor program. Would this be an advantage for me or am I just drawing at straws? I would really benefit from being an apprentice to an established photojournalist or studio photographer but that does not seem realistic to me with a full-time day job... I really enjoy photography but seem to be stuck in a rut and would like to explore other avenues in the photographic field. Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Luis Zepeda

I think you meant http://www.nppa.org/? NAPP seems to be a patent association. I can't speak to that because I'm not a news photographer, I never got involveed with them.

The organizations that I think are best suited to commercial photographers who shoot advertising, editorial (magazines), catalogs, etc, are listed below. I am a member of APA and EP, both very valulable resources. EP is a web-only based group, the membership is not expensive and it has a members only message board. APA has several regional offices, and you can join through one of those, or if you're not near one, as a member at large. ASMP (I'm not a member) has more chapters and touches much of the same issues as all the others, and has been around a long time. PDN is simply a trade magazine, has an online magazine (with additional stuff) and various related websites and resources, as well as producing the annual Photo Expo in NY.

very imformative links. I seem to lean toward ASMP at the moment, there seems to be a support system in the form of chapters nearby. I will research them all. Thanks again.

Respectfully,
Luis
