"The Press Photographers Association of Greater Los Angeles is a professional organization comprised of still and video photojournalists, independent photographers and photojournalism students that work on newspapers, television stations, wire services, national news and sports publications throughout Southern California.
Our Association - founded in 1936 - is recognized by the IRS with 501c6 status and are currently applying for charitable organization status (501c3), which is in the application phase, as an educational foundation. We have been in existence continually since 1936, and have produced our annual yearbook – Just One More – since 1954. We currently have around 400 members, mostly based in Los Angeles/Southern California, but many are located across the USA. Our members consist of video and still photographers and college students enrolled in journalism/photo- journalism courses.
Visitors to our website www.ppagla.org come from over 24 countries, including throughout the United States
Each year, 1,000 copies of Just One More are printed and distributed to our members, as well as distribution to chief photographers of newspapers and television stations, photo repair & retail shops, government (local and state), police and fire officials, colleges and public libraries across the southland. It is a historic record of Los Angeles and Southern California and press photography at it’s best.
