I just checked my merit record and there it was...Greg Yager, CPP!!!!!!!

A huge thank you to everyone that helped me accomplish this. I know I probably drove a few of you nuts in the process but I am very VERY grateful.

Now it's time to give back. If there's anything I can do to help someone through the process please feel free to contact me.

Congrats,

And silly me, I just checked my record and realized I had enough education so I didn't need to submit images!!!

No need to lose weight but that aint gonna stop my dance :)

To me this is the first step on a long journey. I learned a lot about getting through this process in a relatively short period of time so now I'm looking forward to being able to help others do the same.

This was by no means a solo accomplishment but rather the result of many experienced photographers taking their time to answer my questions, critique my work and just put up with me in general. They know who they are and to them I am forever grateful.

I would list their names here but I don't want to get them flooded with requests from a hundred candidates at once.

Way to go Greg and Louise, and anyone else who passed! And like Keith said, if you didn't, try again! I didn't pass the first time around, and I'll be the first to say that I really learned more by not passing the first time. And there were some wonderful people that really helped me along the way too. Now, if I can, I am here to help in any way possible too.

Congrats,
Quick question, when you pass, do you receive any actual certificate to be displayed. For example when you own a studio, it would be nice to display something next to one's college degree? Or any CPP stickers that you could add to your signage, or anything for that matter? It would certainly be nice to proudly display the CPP credentials. Kind of like a CPA accountant will display their certification rather than just accountant?
Thanks

Yes, you receive a diploma, stickers for your windows and a cool looking pin for your shirt :)

You most certainly may.

It's just a jump to the left....
and then a step to the riiiiight
you put you hands on your hips
and pull your knees in tiiiight
and it's the pelvic thrust
that really drives you insaaaaane
Let's do the time warp again!:D
