MAKE MONEY WITH IFPO
Many members participate in IFPO money-making programs to “jump start” a sideline income from photography without changing their current jobs. Others who are already making money in photography use IFPO programs to make their photography and journalism income grow even faster.
IFPO membership ensures you the opportunity to get your photos and articles considered for publication in Today’s Photographer International magazine. Getting published helps aspiring professionals to build a portfolio of tear sheets and publishing credits quickly and easily – the key to making money with your camera. If you’ve never been published or need a more impressive publication to add to your portfolio, this could be your chance of a lifetime. Viewing our magazine will hopefully educate and inspire you with stories and photos from people just like you!

Now, journalists and other media professionals are also taking advantage of IFPO’s Programs.
