Who We Are: We are professional and aspiring professional portrait and general photographers who gather from across eastern Oklahoma for education, fellowship and public service. INPPA is affiliated with the Professional Photographers of America and the Professional Photographers of Oklahoma. Through these and local programs our members further their education and abilities to serve their public and their business.

What We Do: We meet 10 times a year for professional development speakers, once a year for print competition and once a year for a holiday party. Periodically we sponsor extra speakers from across the United States. Several times a year we host fundraising and social events. We offer scholarships to members for the Professional Photographers of Oklahoma Spring Seminar and Fall Convention. We volunteer for community charity efforts as selected by our board of directors.

When We Meet: We meet at the My Photo Studio, 7902 E. 50th street south (Fontana Shopping Center), Tulsa, OK, at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month.

How You Can Join: Membership is open to professional and aspiring photographers, their staff and spouses. Levels of membership and dues vary. Dues are collected each January. Each new member must agree to and sign a code of ethics.

    “Little lights, big look - getting a studio look on location with off camera flash"



    Join INPPA members and spend 4hrs with master photographer Sean Capshaw as he explains, demonstrates and works one-on-one with you to better utilize your equipment. 


    Sean has been photographing professionally since 2005 and earned his master photographer degree from PPA in 2015. After 10 years in the very competitive Southern California wedding market, he learned to light his clients very quickly with a minimal setup and in unpredictable conditions. Learn to not be intimidated by shooting in non optimal conditions and under tight timelines.


    Please bring your camera, and one or two off camera light sources (portable) and light stands for those off camera flashes. Be sure you have some way to fire a flash off camera. You may also bring modifiers but if you are bringing large items like softboxes or umbrellas you may want to have someone to hold that equipment in case of wind. we will be moving and working quickly so don’t bring more than you can carry. If you do not have or use off camera flash, you are still welcome to attend but may not be able to try the techniques we learn during the class
