Dedicated To Supporting & Encouraging The Growth Of Freelance & Professional Photographers & Videographers
The International Association Of Freelance & Professional Photographers was established due to the enormous growth of members of the US Press Association who's primary focus was photography & videography. The International Association Of Freelance & Professional Photographers is based upon the same principals as the US Press Association.
Established in 1999, The US Press Association "THE" USPA was founded on the belief that freelance journalists, (bloggers, photographers, podcasters, videographers, writers, and those associated with radio and other publications) should be entitled to the same rights, privileges and treatment as our counterparts that work in "mainstream media".
We we are the fastest growing segment of journalism! We are the future of journalism!
Recognizing the importance that "New Media" was going to have on the world, the US Press Association had and still has the vision that freelance journalists of all varieties need an outlet for their images, stories, video, other media and an organization that will be there to help and support them every step of the way.
With the increasing number of international journalists, the US Press Association offers international credentials from the International Freelance Journalists Association or IFJA to both international and US domestic, beginner, freelance and professional journalists.
