The Certified Professional Photographer designation (CPP) is designed to prove that a photographer knows the basic techniques and concepts needed to become a professional. This all-day crash study course is designed to prepare you for the written test. It is also a great opportunity to see if you’d like to consider earning a CPP or to help you determine what holes you have in the craft of your photography skill set. Colby McLemore, the instructor, just earned his CPP, and this course was designed directly from what he wished he had known before his written test. Even better, you will be given an action plan for leveraging the process of earning your CPP from a marketing standpoint to help translate it into dollars. You would be hard-pressed to find an easier, quicker, or more affordable way to earn your CPP.
“Colby has a great sense of humor. He is very animated and kept things exciting at all times.”
— Whitney D.
“Great enthusiasm plus in-depth knowledge, plus great teaching skills equals a very useful experience.”
— Ray H.
“Colby’s enthusiasm for photography certainly infects everything he teaches. Participants are treated as equals, their vision and abilities respected. Positive reinforcement is Colby’s specialty.”
— Mike C.
This is a Professional Photographers of America (PPA) Continuing Education workshop. You do not have to be a member of PPA or a professional to participate. If you are a PPA member, participants will receive a service merit towards your Master or Craftsman degree. It also counts as continuing education for Certified Professional Photographers.
If you are not familiar with the Certified Professional Photographer designation, I would suggest contacting Colby to discuss it.
