Hybrid Membership at SOPHA is the best of both worlds!
SOPHA has been the leader in both photographic education and studio rentals for over ten years, and with the addition of our new Education Membership, you can now have it all!
Education Membership + Studio Membership = Hybrid Membership.
Understanding Hybrid Membership is as simple as understanding both Education and Studio Memberships. There is no trick or complication – it is that easy! A Hybrid Member enjoys both included studio hours and included classes!
How about some fine print.
There are some important things to know about Hybrid Membership, so be sure to read the fine print on both the Studio and Education Membership pages. Remember, all SOPHA Memberships are a one year commitment and we do not issue refunds on membership fees. SOPHA Membership terms, rates, and conditions are subject to change with notice.
Not sure which Membership is for you?
Be sure to check out our chart which compares our Memberships side by side.
We made a shorter FAQ page just for current SOPHA Members, which you can find here.
What is the fee for Hybrid Membership?
The fee for Hybrid Membership is $40 per month more than the base Studio Membership you select. Example: The cost of our Gold level Studio Membership (which gets you four hours of studio time per month), is $89 per month – you simply add $40 per month to this to cover the Education Member component.) For simplicity, the additional $40 Hybrid Membership fee is run as a second subscription through our PayPal Subscription Service.
