I really value being part of a professional organization like PPA. With the tremendous influx of new "professionals" to our industry, it's so important to set myself apart and above as much as I can. Getting my certification and joining PPA is a huge piece of that puzzle. Healthy competition is good for any industry, but I feel that we need to be smarter about qualifying and requiring certification. Being a member of PPA is just part of being "professional." I am proud to be a part of this organization. And, every month when I read through Professional Photographer I feel like I pick up one new little tidbit. There is always something new to learn. SMS has also helped out my business. Before we got SMS help, I really had no idea how to price nor did I realize how much product actually cost. SMS really helped give me great insight into what the true cost of doing business was.
