Real Estate Photographers of America & International™ is an internet-based trade association with one primary purpose:

To promote the professional success of professional real estate photographers.

The REPAI is not a vehicle for social change, a bandwagon for political agenda or a soapbox for business reform.

The REPAI will strive continually to bring new and better clients to its members through innovative and aggressive marketing techniques. At the same time, the REPAI will make a constant effort to educate and inform the photography buying public as to the merits of hiring a qualified real estate photographer.

To the professional real estate photographer, the REPAI is an invaluable resource for new business. Each REPAI member has the opportunity to draw on the knowledge and experience of other professional members through interaction on the REPAI LinkedIn Group and the REPAI Flickr Group.

REPAI members are also eligible for discounts and special offers from our industry friends and sponsors. Discounts include equipment rentals, web hosting, equipment purchases, travel, events, etc.

Finally, the REPAI provides business and professional resources through newsletters, industry memos and webinars which allow each member to refine and improve his or her business.
