The Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) is a certification from the Professional Photographers of America and indicates the photographer’s high level of knowledge, experience, and technical abilities.  A Certified Professional Photographer must complete a written examination, an image portfolio evaluation, and adhere to a strict code of conduct.

On a national level, only 3% of photographers (less than 2,000) are Certified Professional Photographers.


Consistency:  A Certified Professional Photographer will know how to achieve amazing results every time.  You will end up with a strong gallery of images that depicts a consistently high standard of work.

Technical Skills: A Certified Professional Photographer has studied and implements technical elements of art, lighting, posing, fashion, and even interior design.  They are able to use these elements to create photographs that will fit your unique style.  The photographs they create will become a custom work of art that your family will treasure for generations.

Unique Artistry: If you want your commissioned artwork to stand out as unique and personal, hire a Certified Professional Photographer.  Each photograph they create follows an artistic vision and becomes your story captured as a collection of stunning artwork.

Professionalism: Certified Professional photographers are professionals who are willing to go the extra mile to deliver the best images possible.  Customer service and satisfaction are cornerstones of their business as they continue to produce products that will exceed your expectations.

It’s true that just about everyone has a camera these days, and most people can take a good picture now and then. If you're wanting something more than an average snapshot, something that will last a lifetime and beyond, invest in a Certified Professional Photographer.
