What is a Certified Professional Photographer?
At Vanessa G. Photography, we have the only Certified Professional Photographer specializing in Newborn Portraiture in Southeastern, NC. Vanessa German earned her Certified Professional Photographer designation from Professional Photographers of America in 2012. After working professionally as a photographer for several years in her first studio, she felt it was important to apply for this designation to help assure her clients that she was dedicated to providing the best experience and photographic art possible. This distinction is held by fewer than 8 percent of photographers in the United States and must be earned with a stringent portfolio review and a written 2 hour exam covering all aspects of photography.
Because when things matter, you’ve only got one shot. And there’s no substitute for experience.
“The way that I personally look at it is if I were going to get my hair cut, I am going to look for someone who has been to beauty school and who has the license to prove it, not just some random person who says, ‘oh I’ve been cutting hair for years. It’s the same for searching for a photographer.”
– Tracy McGee, CPP
These days, photography is practiced by anyone with a smartphone, but it’s mastered by few. When it comes to those once-in-a-lifetime moments—when you’ve got one shot at getting it right—you better make sure the person behind the camera is a pro. A proven professional photographer that is.
There’s no greater proof than when the letters “CPP” follow a photographer’s name. They designate a Certified Professional Photographer, someone who is putting in the extra work to stay above the rest. It assures you of this photographer’s professional knowledge and experience, while also declaring that photographer as one who has achieved and maintains a higher standard.
See the Difference Certified Professional Photographers Make
Consistency. CPPs know how to achieve great results—every time. You get a strong collection of images that tell your story, not a few lucky snapshots, and you will work with someone who knows how to produce a quality image under any circumstances.
Technical Skills. CPPs are more than picture takers. They are students of art, lighting, posing, fashion and even interior design. They combine these elements to create images that fit your unique style and become works of art you will treasure for generations.
Unique Artistry. CPPs have the skills to create unique, customized works of art—not cookie-cutter pictures. They follow an artistic vision. It’s your story captured as a collection of art.
Professionalism. When you hire a CPP, you know you’re getting someone who is willing to go the extra mile to deliver the best possible images. They are business owners who thrive on customer service and satisfaction, and they continuously aim to produce products that exceed your—and their—best expectations. These images are keepsakes whose stories you’ll tell time and time again and treasure forever.
Just about anyone can take a good picture every now and then. But when life’s biggest moments are unfolding and there’s just one chance to capture that perfect memory, don’t risk it. Entrust your photography needs to a Certified Professional Photographer and see the difference for yourself.
