Chapter Benefits

The APA Sourcebook

The APA Sourcebook uses the power of print and the APA brand to connect with Art Buyers, Art Producers, and Photo Editors.

We believe that photographers should use as many different channels as possible to showcase their talent to potential buyers. We know that increasing your marketing effort will help drive business growth and the APA Sourcebook provides an additional opportunity to be seen by people who hire photographers.

The APA member benefit is FREE to Leader and Professional members!  For those who want to stand out more, an additional page can be purchased for $500.  Not yet an APA member at one of these levels?  You may join APA at any level here or if you need to upgrade an existing membership, contact our National Membership Representative.

APA NW Member to Members Policies                               

APA NW m2m emails are a great way to selectively reach a safe, all-APA-NW-Member audience with classifieds, or event announcements. m2ms are generally sent out when we receive them and no more than once a week as a single compilation edition which usually include more than one members' ads or event announcements. These weekly editions are currently scheduled to go out each Friday. The final deadline is 2:00 PM the day before (each Thursday). Members' messages received after the deadline will be sent out in the following week's edition.
Members' Messages will be listed within the m2m Weekly Edition in the order in which they are received, with the member's name or company name at the top of each message. Please be sure to spell check and carefully proofread your message--all messages will be sent out as is.

If you are interested in any m2m offers, please respond directly to the APA Member listed in the message; we simply cannot forward replies.

m2m is a regional benefit for APA NW members only. If you are an APA NW Leader,  Professional, Associate, or Supporter Member in good standing, you can send out appropriate m2m emails by simply emailing your text only message to us at (APA NW is an Associate Chapter of APA SF, our Regional Chapter).
Member Event announcements and Studio Rental posts can include a banner or graphic; send us a RBG, 150 ppi, 4" wide JPG.
We do not send out any attachments but you can include links within your message. We will forward your message right out on the upcoming Friday; be sure to include in your text a way (email address or phone) for interested people to respond directly to you, because we cannot forward replies.
The APA NW m2m Weekly Edition service is reserved for APA NW Members' Photo Equipment for Sale Classifieds, appropriate Member Job Opportunities, Studio Rental Classifieds, or Member Exhibit/Events, and Supporter (crew) Classified (30 words maximum) announcements only.


Please consolidate all of your current m2m information into one message. To avoid inundating our members with too many lengthy emails, we will only send out one m2m message per month from any APA NW Supporter Member -- APA NW Leader and Professional members are entitled to two m2m messages per month.
