APA Discounts: Members at the Supporter level and above are entitled to several dozen lucrative discount offers from Apple, Archive, Yodelist, Blinkbid, PDN, and Agency Access, to name just a few.

APA SF Chapter Member Benefits, like the big 20% discount on all rentals at Samy’s Camera can easily pay for your membership, many times over, each year. And we have 14 more local benefits, plus great events, like our spectacular annual Something Personal juried exhibitions (members typically save up to 50% on all event & APA SF contest fees).

APA Insurance: Get professional coverage at competitive rates from AIS (APA Insurance Services); photographer policies developed by pro photographers. With AIS coverage, you never pay extra of COI (Certificates of Insurance) -- the savings in COI fees alone can cover your annual membership dues.

Reduced Excess Baggage fees: our APA Member Pro Media Card is specifically designed to help expedite quick check-in service at airports, as well as to facilitate the pro media discount on excess baggage, available through many airlines. Lots of APA members save hundreds of dollars every year, just by using this single APA benefit.
