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!
