Chamber 3: Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation

The Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF) was created in 1987 for the upliftment of Philippine photography and the welfare of Filipino photographers. It is a non-stock, non-profit organization that encourages cooperation rather than competition among fractious photography associations.

On request, the FPPF holds photo workshops for employees of private and public institutions. Workshops may be designed to the specific needs of an organization, such as police work, publication work, company documentation, etc. Provincial requests are entertained.
