about

Serving Colorado Springs photographers since 1989, the Professional Photographers Guild of Colorado Springs (PPGCS) brings professional photographers together in a relaxed, informative, and fun community atmosphere that promotes the advancement of the photographer's skill while creating an open environment where photographers can share their work, ideas, and resources.

PPGCS is open to all photographers who want to learn and improve their skills, and to network with professional photographers from the greater Colorado Springs community.  We are an affiliate of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), and our membership includes national, award winning photographers from across the Pikes Peak region.

 

Our vision is to be the center of excellence along the Front Range to inspire and support photographers in developing their craft and unique business situations.
