As 2017 Comes to a Close

As 2017 leaves us and 2018 quickly approached we wanted to say What a Year it Has Been as the Master Photographers International Organization (MPI) grows to new levels...




MPI has had an exciting year as we released our new website that includes a number of new features. The New MPI Members Galleries have enhanced search capabilities making it easier to search and find the Qualified Professional that will be creating your portraits, capturing your commercial assignments or for when you are looking to purchase a unique piece of art. 

Take a moment to view some of the MPI Featured Professionals located towards the bottom of the linked page. They have some great work we would love to share with you.  

Many of our members are currently in the process of updating to their new MPI Branding and MPI is in the process of including their achievements with the MPI IIC (MPI Competition).

Bookmark us and make sure to come back and visit for any of your photography needs. And remember to tell your friends and family you know where to find a Qualified Professional Photographer. 

If you have questions or prefer that we refer a Qualified Professional for you - reach out to us at or at 844.273.6762. We are always happy to help. 

If you have hired one of our Qualified Professionals, we would love to hear of your experience.



MPI has had an exciting year as we released our new website.  The new MPI website includes a number of new features for MPI Members. We have now included albums and tagging along with a new interface which makes the experience of setting up your presence quicker and more pleasurable. We have also included an extra Album that showcases Members Achievements with the MPI IIC. 

This year MPI as well released its new International Branding that speaks of the Master Photographers International Organization with a clearer understanding of who we are. 

MPI Continues to promote its members and this year again we have broken our past records of visits to the site as many search the MPI Member Galleries.  

The MPI 2017 IIC was a great success again this year with record breaking entries and honors.  The MPI IIC honors earn member points towards the Master Program as members accomplish higher levels. 

The MPI 2018 IIC will be opening for submissions in February. Start preparing for your submissions! It is going to be another great year! 

As MPI grows, we will be looking at more events. Currently MPI is working towards hosting an educational event in February. This event will focus on portrait lighting, posing and the business of studio photography.  Watch as we release more information. 

We had a number of members complete their entry placement, if you have not yet completed yours - log in and visit the Master Program page. Take time to read the guidelines and submit your placement. MPI does not publish any Galleries of members not completing this step, so take time to complete this step and submit your Placement Portfolio. Placement Portfolio are due within 60 days of joining as a Member. 

Reminder that the deadline to request your Designation Wall Package is closing soon, December 31.  To request your package, simply log in and go to Designation Package Request

We have had a number of members wanting to submit  a second portfolio to earn another Master Designation. Further Designations and higher levels are earned though the MPI IIC. Make sure not to miss entering the MPI IIC to help you grow through the program. For more information and to review the Master Program Outline, please log in and go to the Master Program Chart 

To all our new members in 2017 we wanted to extend a warm welcome and let you know we are here for you with any questions. Reach out to us and let us know how we can help. 

For our Pioneer members - we wanted to let you know that we have included two months of free membership to your accounts meaning that your annual membership payment will be process two month later in 2018.
