The IPPA annual conference is Ireland’s premier photographic event run by photographers for photographers. It takes place on February 21st 2016 at the Radisson Blu Hotel Golden Lane, Dublin. It’s an opportunity for inspiration, creativity, business ideas and marketing. The IPPA has organised an impressive lineup of international and Irish photographers through a diverse range of disciplines. From commercial to weddings, creative portraiture and fashion. The common thread is a commitment to quality, creativity and the promotion of the photographic industry in Ireland.

Tickets are available to IPPA members, general professionals and amateurs alike. A love of photography and a desire to learn and be inspired is all that’s needed. The IPPA conference is a meeting of minds. It’s a yearly opportunity where photographers can talk, mingle and socialise. F-stop and composition talk is not frowned upon but rather encouraged; guilt free full immersion. The day of creativity builds to our annual awards dinner where the Bank of Ireland sponsored “Irish Professional Photographer of the Year 2016” is announced.


The conference runs across two rooms simultaneously, with a unification of the rooms for the last session of the day which incorporates a live photoshoot. The programme is as follows:

Room 1

10:00 – 11:30 Sasha de Paz (portraiture)
12:00 – 1:00 Sean McCormack (lighroom)
2:30 – 16:00 Chris Clor (commercial)
