PPOC-AT / Welcome to PPOC Atlantic


Welcome to the Atlantic Region of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC).

We are an active, passionate, and friendly group of Professional Photographers based throughout the four Atlantic provinces. We provide opportunities for our members to learn, compete, share, thrive and become industry leaders in their area.

As professionals we stand by PPOC’s strict Code of Ethics, and educate the image buying public of the importance in hiring Nationally Accredited Photographers who have proven that their aptitude and abilities not only meets industry standards, but in most cases exceeds it!

It is our joy to celebrate the profession with our fellow members and help raise the bar for industry standards in our area. We believe in the professionalism, diversity, quality and skill of our membership to provide only the best experience and images for our clients.

Every fall we join together in our Annual “Inspired Vision” convention as friends and peers to share social time, and learn new business and technical skills. Here we also celebrate the amazing skills of our members at the annual Image Salon Awards Gala.

The Annual Regional Image Competition is where our members have the opportunity to compete for coveted awards such as Commercial Photographer of the Year, Portrait Photographer of the Year and Photographic Artist of the Year.

The Annual National Image Competition is where our Accredited members are encouraged to compete for prestigious national awards. Many of the resulting top awarded image-makers are invited to go on to compete in the World Photographic Cup (WPC), which is essentially the Olympics of photography!

These are just a few of the many advantages to being a PPOC Atlantic member.

As a member, you will also have access to our private social media pages, where you can reach out to professionals in your field across the country for everything from advice on purchasing camera gear, business guidance and technical support and all the while forming nationwide friendships!

We pride ourselves in being a community of volunteers with immense passion and dedication to our members and our industry.
Whether you are an amateur photographer who would like to take their photography to the next level in business and skill, or a seasoned professional you will benefit greatly by joining and participating in all we have to offer.
