What does it mean to be an accredited professional photographer?
“Accreditation demonstrates that the photographer has proven professional ability to the Board of Examiners of
the Professional Photographers of Canada. In assessing Accreditation submissions, the judges will consider the following criteria: Impact, Creativity, Style, Composition, Presentation, Color Balance,Centre of Interest, Lighting, Subject Matter, Technique and Story Telling.”

The Professional Photographers of Canada offers some amazing educational opportunities that I have been attending for several years now. I am so excited to have gone through my collection of images, worked with a PPOC mentor and submitted my portfolio for the Fantasy Illustration category.
