PPA Certified Photographers...

At Studio 3 Images, all three of us (Heidi, Andrew and Dave) are PPA Certified Professional Photographers (CPP). To the person reading this blog, your very next thought might just be "What does that mean and why should I care?"

Professional Photographers Association (PPA) is the nation's oldest photography organization, dating back to the 1880's.  Part of PPA's mission is to promote the professionalism and quality of photography.  They established the Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) program to do just that; set a standard for photography so that you, the client, can feel confident in knowing you are using a professional to create beautiful and timeless images.  Much like other certified professionals, using a CPP permits you to be at ease, knowing that a professional is running the show and that you will be well served.

To attain CPP certification, each CPP candidate must pass a comprehensive 100 question test and submit to a portfolio review.  This two part process ensures that each CPP candidate has the 'book smarts' necessary to create a beautiful image, and they have also demonstrated these 'smarts' by submitting a portfolio that incorporates these skills in practice.  Each candidate has invested time, effort and energy to attain this certification, thus offering you confidence when investing with them to create beautiful images that you and your family can cherish for years to come.

Whether you decide engage with Studio 3 Images to create your incredible images, or choose another photographer, be sure to ask if your photographer is PPA certified.  If they are, you can rest assured you will be well taken care of in the hands of a true professional.  All you need to do is look for the CPP logo, like you see below.
