Advancing Your Photography (AYP) Club is an international photography party and forum bringing you the best content, instruction and entertainment in the world of light-writing. Curious to see what you can do as an AYP Club member? Here’s a few suggestions to get you started: (Be sure to see FAQs for more details or questions.)

Get Your Photos Critiqued

Ever wondered if you have what it takes to be a big shot shooter? Upload your photographs and have them critiqued by fellow members and maybe even by past AYP guests, including award-winning photographers in fields such as journalism, portraiture, fashion, sports and documentary.

Learn Exclusive Tips From The Pros

As an AYP Club member, you’ll always be the first to discover high-quality interviews from Silber Studios. Get exclusive access to Marc’s conversations with photography professionals, and go behind the scenes as he discovers their secrets to capturing incredible images.

Join A Conversation

Whether you want to debate the ethics of photoshopping in journalism, have burning questions for AYP photographers or just want to see what people are talking about, the AYP Club forum is your destination for all things photography-related. Here you can contribute to topics already in discussion or start very your own thread — Either way, jump into the conversation!

Connect With Friends

Want to meet other photographers with similar interests? AYP is the perfect place to connect with people who want to get better at photography, just like you. To meet like-minded shutter-bugs, just click on the keywords in your profile. For example, have Annie Leibovitz listed as a favorite photographer? Just click on her name and you’ll be taken to a group of all AYP Club members with the same interest. It’s that easy!

Join A Local Group (or create your own)

Really into fashion photography? Want to meet fellow animal photographers in Toledo? Hey, there’s a group for that! Join one of the AYP Club’s many groups to talk about what interests you. And if you don’t see one that fits … make your own!

And remember — this is YOUR community. Tell your friends on Facebook and Twitter and the bus to check out the AYP Club. Let’s work together to make it the most constructive, informative and inspiring place for photographers imaginable. Because as The Beatles might have said (if they were more AYP-inclined): “The photos YOU take are equal to the ones you help OTHERS make.”

So have fun… and let’s get out there and shoot!

Increase your Skill

The net result of the AYP Club is a dynamic learning process to help you advance your photography and have tons of fun while doing so.
