Become a Certified Professional Photographer
The most significant growth as a photographic artist started when I joined my PPA local and state affiliates PPANI and APPI, respectively. The epic transformation was elevated through relationships that I built through strong mentorship and inspiring one on one education very similar to the NEIPP experience.
Education has always been one of my key value statements and through this journey I was able to obtain the Masters of Photography and the Photographic Craftsman degrees from PPA in several years. Wanting to give back I began serving as a CPP liaison since 2011 wanting to help educate and elevate the photographic industry as well as having served on many state affiliate juror panels to help others pursue their goals.
Another extremely important value statement is FUN! Making the learning experience fun through fellowship runs very deep in my DNA which is also very evident in the NEIPP DNA.
In addition to holding the Masters of Photography and the Photographic Craftsman degrees from PPA I have achieved high level of distinction which includes being PPA Photographer of the Year for 6-consecutive years including receiving the Diamond Photographer of the Year in 2014. Other accolades include images accepted into the International Photographic Competition (IPC) Loan Collections, Top Ten District Photographer at the 2012 North Central District competition and received PPANI and APPI President’s Awards.
