I have just received notice that I passed the certification image review and I am now a Certified Professional Photographer! It was a long journey, including a difficult exam and multiple image submissions, but I am proud to have passed and to be considered a Professional Photographer by my peers.
There is only one other CPP in Erie County, and within 50 miles of Erie, there are only 5 CPP photographers…and I know two of the others personally, great people!
Many thanks to Dana Nordlund for providing the inspiration and support for me to pursue this journey. I think I’ll continue to try and advance in the art of Photography.
