We are so excited today to be announcing a brand new feature to The FPA. As you know if you have been following us since our launch just over two weeks ago, we are striving here at the FPA to create an online resource to help you to grow a wildly profitable photography business; one which enables you to feel fulfilled creatively and to live the life that you desire.
We specialise in free, online photography business education – but we are more than that. We want to be able to raise your profile, increase your social media presence + following, and bring your work to the attention of those who could change your entire career.
And so we are introducing our newest addition to the Female Photographer Association site; the Saturday Feature. You’re going to love it.
What Is It?
The Saturday Feature is, quite simply, a showcase designed to promote beautiful work.
Why Do I Want To Submit My Work?
The Female Photographer Association is now reaching some of the most influential organisations within photography the world over. We are followed and read by leading galleries and photography organisations in London, New York, Paris + Shanghai- the leading global hubs of photography, arts, and creativity.
We have quickly gained a beautifully diverse following, from the most beautiful wedding blogs and stylists, to alternative fashion magazines, through to contemporary private galleries. If your work is featured on the FPA, your work could be seen by those that matter.
Not only that. If your work is featured by us, not only will we support you and your work throughout the day and the following week over our social media, we will seek to permanently uphold your career. You will be welcomed into the FPA with open arms! If you need help, advice, or someone to sit and sit virtual lattes with, we will be here for you.
Your work will also be considered for inclusion in our magazine, launching 2015. This luxury publication will be distributed to media channels, galleries, blogs, editors, publishers and pr companies worldwide.
Plus, in addition to the above, we will send your our super-shiny FPA badge for you to feature wherever you wish- from your website to your email signature. This badge acts as a mark of quality and recognition- we will only be featuring shoots from those who have clearly demonstrated talent, vision, control over their medium, and originality.
Who can submit?
Absolutely all genres and styles are welcome. We consider fine art to weddings to boudoir to reportage to contemporary portraiture; fashion to to editorial to documentary to travel to maternity and newborns. We want to see your personal projects and your professional ones. If you think your work deserves to be seen- send it to us. We don’t demand exclusivity and we don’t charge for our features.
Surely you are looking for a particular style?
We don’t hide the fact that we do have a personal penchant for pretty shots with a feminine aesthetic, with a great love for film photography and also bright, clean, editorial sessions! But our true belief is that as photographers we can all be inspired and uplifted by all genres.
Every genre from newborn photography through to fashion to social documentary has its purpose and place- all are entirely beautiful in their own right, and all should be upheld and celebrated. All are styles are welcome here.
What do I need to do?

Images must be sized at 600 px wide.

What happens next?
If you have been successful, you will be notified within 10 days with an email about what to do next. We are sorry but we can’t contact everyone who submits; as a very tiny team it is impossible to reply to everyone. We will however try to provide constructive feedback for you if requested.
We can’t wait to see and share your work.
The Saturday Feature launches September 2014.
