Certification and Professional Affiliations

Certification

Charlie is a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP), making him one of less than 4% of all photographic professionals who have successfully completed and maintained the strict requirements.

The Professional Photographic Certification Commission (PPCC) is the world's leading certifying agency for imaging professionals. Certification requires applicants to pass a stringent and comprehensive written examination measuring technical expertise. It also requires submission of a portfolio of work to a panel of nationally renown judges for review. Once an applicant is awarded certification they must renew their credentials every five years by participating in continuing education programs and periodically submitting work for critical evaluation. This insures that Certified Professional Photographers maintain their expertise and continue to develop new skills and techniques. In addition all Certified Professional Photographers must adhere to the Standards of Conduct for Certification.
