Take the Next Step and Become a Certified Professional Photographer

|
By Nicole McIntosh

200,000. That's about the number of professional photographers active in the United States, so how do you stand out from the crowd? You know your stuff and you are not average. Upholding an official certification like the CPP points it out right away!

If you are ready to venture into a new stage of your photography career, or want to take your work and professional recognition to a new level, then its time you got Certified. 

Every year the photography world becomes more and more competitive to keep up with the changing times. Although there are some people that are just looking to get the best price out of any photographer despite the quality, there are actually a ton of people who value the quality of their photos. In order for a person to have confidence in their photographer sometimes they have to have proof to believe they will get the best results. This is why it is important to become a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) so that you will have a title to vouch for your name and work.

So now I bet you're wondering, what if I'm scared to do it? Well guess what, you're not the only one! Others may fear the steps of earning their CPP because they don't understand the process. It can be very challenging to try to figure it all out on your own and it shouldn't! That's why at Imaging USA 2016 there is a panel to help out, get rid of these fears, and put you on your way to becoming a Certified Professional Photographer. 

This special CPP-prep program is called the The Game Changer: Become a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP). The presenters, Francie Baltazar Stonestreet, Cr.Photog., CPP, Bree Adams, CPP, Landon Day, CPP, and Dave Goldman, Cr.Photog., CPP run successful wedding, baby, maternity, sports, headshot and senior photography businesses. They will give you the opportunity to learn how they earned their CPP and how it impacted their work and their businesses. They will also share everything from their successes to their failures and ultimately leading to how earning their CPP changed the game for their businesses.

You won't want to miss this opportunity at Imaging USA. Earning your CPP in 2016 could be the game changer for you too!
