An update on activities of the CTEQ-TEA global analysis project will be given. This includes discussion of the latest NNLO CT10 parton distribution functions and their implications for predictions at the LHC. We also present a study of QED effects, including photon PDFs, in the CT10 analysis, and show how the ZEUS DIS plus observed photon data can constraint the initial photon PDF.
