General Liability Insurance

In our business, it's not uncommon for accidents to happen on a set or at an event. That's why it's important for you as a business owner to have liability insurance. The policy covers you for up to $1 million per occurrence, with a $2 million limit and has been negotiated in such way that it is one of the best deals out there. You can check! See how PPA's General Liability insurance has your back.

New Image Submission FAQ

As candidates prepare to submit their portfolios, they may attend workshops or work with instructors to help set up their compulsory images. While we encourage CPP candidates to practice and seek advice from mentors, images taken in these settings are not allowed for submission. Check the FAQ!

New LinkedIn Badge for Certified Photographers

CPPs can now officially show their Certification on LinkedIn! You can now add the designation to your profile with this new badge. Just follow the instructions that will appear on the blue box on your screen after you log into your LinkedIn account. Once it's added to your LinkedIn profile, you can drag it up with your mouse. Go ahead, proudly show you are a CPP on LinkedIn, it only takes a minute!
