Most everyone who knows me knows how important photographic education is to me.  I am constantly striving to be better, learn more and advance my art.  As a part of this, I decided to try and become a Certified Professional Photographer– a task that is no simple undertaking.  After studying for the massive, super technical test in January I received notice a few weeks later that I had passed!  The next step was an in-depth portfolio review that could include no models, no personal projects, competition work, etc.  This had to represent what I do each and every day.  To say the least, it was nerve-wracking!

Well, I am so thrilled to announce that all the hard work paid off!  I received notice today that I have passed all the requirements and I am now Tallahassee’s only Certified Professional Photographer!  Yippee!
