Sip and Share

Casual, small group discussions—for members only

Meet virtually—and casually—with a small group of nature photographers who share your interest on a particular subject. A NANPA member who is passionate about the topic will start the conversation and serve as host, but your questions, answers, observations, tips, experience, and camaraderie will guide the rest.

Free to all NANPA members and limited in size. Sip and Shares are a great way to meet other photographers.

Stock Photography: The good, the bad, and the ugly
July 22 | 2:00 pm EDT/11 am PDT | 90 minutes
Conversation Starter: Cindy Miller Hopkins

Stock imagery has gone through several major industry changes over the past two decades. As pricing continues to decrease, is it still worth the effort to attempt to sell stock images? Join Cindy Miller Hopkins for a casual, honest, and informative discussion. Possible topics: Who buys stock images? How are stock images used? Which agencies should I consider partnering with? How much can you make selling stock? What are your rights as a stock photographer? Why is metadata important? Cindy has been a full-time wildlife and travel stock photographer for over 20 years. She is represented by two stock agencies and licenses over 2,000 stock images a year. Bring your questions and experiences with stock photography to this discussion group.

Regional Events

Get into the field with colleagues during one of our Regional Events. Limited in size for the best collaboration and networking opportunities, each Regional Event is led by one or more NANPA members with extensive experience photographing in the featured location. Instruction is available if desired, but often photographers simply enjoy being in the area with someone who has already scouted it for the best photo opps. See what’s coming up
