PPA members have a way to stand out from the crowd built right in to their membership. The CPP (Certified Professional Photographer) designation is the official credential for photographers that want to set themselves apart within the photography industry.

The Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) program from PPA assures potential clients of a photographer's knowledge, experience and continuance to develop new skills and techniques. It is a declaration of professional competence and ability.

Photographers who earn their CPP credential do so for three primary reasons:

  • It gives them an edge in advertising their services, as certification promotes trust in the minds of clients and consumers.
  • It is a way to justify the price of services offered by the world's top photographers.
  • The peer validation step that is required to earn the certification signals to the photography world that you truly care about your craft.

The path to certification is a simple, 3-step process.

  • Declare your candidacy to PPA.
  • Study for and pass the CPP exam.
  • Submit a set of images for official review.

Once said images are approved, the photographer will have earned their CPP designation. For more information or to get started on your path to photography certification, head to PPA.com/CPP
