Why Hire a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP)?

See the Difference Certified Professional Photographers Make

"I always encourage people to get certified because without going through the process, I never would have known the things I know now. It has, without a doubt, greatly improved my skills as a photographer. There are quite a few people that have seen my growth as a photographer and have also wanted to become certified. We have to raise the bar in this industry and make our certification known."

"The way that I personally look at it is if I were going to get my hair cut, I am going to look for someone who has been to beauty school and who has the license to prove it, not just some random person who says, 'oh I've been cutting hair for years. It's the same for searching for a photographer.”

These days, photography is practiced by anyone with a smartphone, but it's mastered by few. When it comes to those once-in-a-lifetime moments—when you've got one shot at getting it right—you better make sure the person behind the camera is a pro. A proven professional photographer that is.

There's no greater proof than when the letters "CPP" follow a photographer's name. They designate a Certified Professional Photographer, someone who is putting in the extra work to stay above the rest. It assures you of this photographer's professional knowledge and experience, while also declaring that photographer as one who has achieved and maintains a higher standard.
