    Default Support or Study Groups?

    I'm getting ready to pursue certification and I wondered if there is any such thing as a forum or place where others get together and go through the book recommended for study and possibly critique images to help one select which would be appropriate to include in the portfolio submitted.

    Thanks!

    Sure - here are some resources to help you get started:

    http://learnwithbetsy.com/certification

    http://wps.prenhall.com/hss_london_photo_9/

    http://www.certifiedphotographer.com/

    You can also post images here, or in the CPP gallery above if you prefer to remain anonymous. Not sure how the login works for the anon. post - but PM Michael Gan for more info on how to do that.

    Sandy Puc' will be hosting a site soon that is designed for just that...helping get photographers certified. Not completely sure when, exactly, it will be up but it is coming soon. I believe she is calling it "Certify with Sandy" or something like that.

    Certify with Sam will be up very shortly, within the next couple of weeks. So far, we have around 2000 photographers ready to sign up! We have two and hopefully three CPP educators who will be conducting webinars through the site and I will be there for information regarding image submissions.

    In the meanwhile, if you are a member of a local association, why not start a study group? I can help you to organize one.

    If your business depends on you, you don't own a business-you have a job. And it's the worst job in the world because you're working for a lunatic... You can't close it when you want to, because if it's closed you don't get paid. You can't leave it when you want to, because if you leave there's nobody there to do the work. You can't sell it when you want to, because who wants to buy a job?

    Likewise. I contacted you awhile ago about helping, Michael - any word on that? (While I got a LOT of free time!)
