"Early on, when I was setting up my photography business, VLAA helped me with pricing, answered my copyright questions and reviewed a big contract for an 'out of the country commission.'  Seventy-one countries later, I am still using the tips and information provided at their classes."
Ray Marklin, photographer

The cost of maintaining our infrastructure is quite modest, and even small donations can make an enormous difference.
