PPA Today: Certified Professional Photographer: July 2010 Archives

Certified Professional Photographer: July 2010 Archives

Gary and Kathryn MeekProfessional credentials are not just handed out willy-nilly. They are earned through hard work and study, and that's what makes them so valuable to photographers and their clients. Even if a client doesn't know all the ins and outs of photographic certification, they understand that someone who has been certified in his or her craft has industry-leading technical skills. It's not easy, but it's worth it; and any Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) can tell you that. That's why PPA offers certification preparation classes to help members prepare for certification exams and image submissions.

"We all have our own weaknesses," says Gary Meek, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, API, EA-ASP, one of the instructors of the upcoming Certification Preparation Class, along with his wife, Kathy, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, API. "That's the beauty of this class. We can find out what the weaknesses are and concentrate on strengthening a participant's knowledge on those points."

The Meeks are able to do that because every person who signs up for their class is sent about a hundred pages of handouts and study guides...prior to the class. You'll get sample tests, Gary's own white papers, a handout on histograms and even a page of photographic formulas.
