Honestly, I became a photographer because it was the only art medium I could see making a long-term career. I am artistic and crafty - but photography has always been my strongest artistic skill.
My proudest moment as a professional photographer was the month of October 2018 - In one week I earned the last Speaking Merit required to receive my Craftsman Degree (walked across that stage in Atlanta), Georgia Photographer of the Year, my first 100 in the International Photographic Competition, and the CPP Award.
I became a PPA member for the educational opportunities given as a benefit. What I've received is much, much more!
Being a member of PPA has given me the tools needed to accomplish my goals, raise my skill sets, and build a strong business. I've met my mentors, sponsors, and many of my closest friends through PPA.
I love the print competition pieces that are showcased each month in PPmag. It's the first thing I look for in each edition.
