Mary Fisk-Taylor, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, ABI, API, EA-ASP, has been a member of PPA since 1998. Along with her business partner Jamie Hayes, she operates a high-end portrait and wedding business in Richmond, Virginia. Hayes & Fisk Photography is a home-based studio located on almost one acre of beautiful gardens, and they have successfully created one of the most sought-after portraits and wedding studios in their area.

Mary is a Certified Professional Photographer, as well as a Master of Photography and a Craftsman of Photography. And get this: she completed all of these in just three short years! Her work has appeared in PPA’s Loan Collection, and she is the winner of numerous awards, including the Kodak Gallery Awards and the Fuji Masterpiece Awards. In 2014, Mary received the Charles H. Haynes Award for her distinguished service to PPA and its members for encouraging business awareness and practices in the field of professional image-making.

Mary has always had a passion for learning and education, so it was only natural for her to join the PPA Business Instructor program when it began in 1999. She’s also served as a PPA Studio Management Services Mentor and an International Juror for PPA image competitions. In addition to her role as PPA President, she is also extremely active with Operation Smile International and has served as a staff photographer for several of the organization's events and missions.

Mary is not only a dedicated member of PPA’s community, but she also has firsthand experiences with just about every element of our organization. From competitions and degrees to education and Imaging USA, Mary has insights to share with you all!
