Welcome to the launch of the new American Photography Association site. We're in the midst of making some updates and experimenting with some new features, so please pardon us if there are a few bugs, broken links or random gibberish.

The goal for the new site is pretty simple...literally...clean, simple, easy to navigate and to provide a better showcase for some fantastic photography and photographers like you. The site is a work in progress and we're looking forward to your continued support and participation.

Send us your feedback and let us know what you think.
