APA | SD Mission Statement

APA is a volunteer organization, run by photographers for photographers.

APA’s goal is to establish and promote professional practices,
standards and ethics in the photographic community.

We seek to mentor, motivate, educate and inspire the pursuit of photographic excellence.

Our aim is to speak as one common voice for the rights of all
photographic artists pursuing professional careers.

Whether the subject is artistic vision, business practices or new technologies,
APA continues to be one of the photographic community’s leading voices.
