Welcome to the
Minnesota Professional Videographers Association

26 years of friendship,
learning and fun!

Learn, Teach, Mentor.

Share your knowledge

Maybe you’ve got some of the answers. A group like the MPVA is a rewarding way for you to share your expertise. Someone may have helped you learn about technology; now you can repay the favor while meeting new people and making new contacts. Learn and benefit from the experiences of our MPVA members.

Get support and enhance your skills.

You’ve got questions. The MPVA has answers. Enhance your skills so you can take yourself to a new professional level, or create projects for your family or hobbies.

Make new friends

Meet people who share your interests and passions. Make friends - face to face - with whom you can talk about all things video. Production, equipment, business practices, troubleshooting, problem solving and more, or just hang out. Go to a monthly meeting or to special events.
On-line forums and chat rooms lack the personal interaction, the camaraderie, the help you may need in an emergency. 
Above all, you will learn that you are not alone, that others share the same success and failures that you do.


Need a freelancer, an editor, a sound man, a voice over pro, a grip, a secretary - a date. Find a mentor. Find a business partner. There are so many networking opportunities.

Make business contacts

Maybe you’re not looking for a date, but you could be looking for professional contacts and networks. Meet people who run and manage area businesses, law practices, and medical centers and discuss ways you can build relationships that are beneficial to all parties.

Find local resources

The Internet provides many answers and resources. However, nothing beats the personal connection of meeting with local video producers and exploring the resources that are available locally — from resellers to technical support to community activities.
