I have previously mentioned my involvement with the Professional Photographers of Canada and the Professional Photographers of Ontario. Not only am I an active member, but I am also on the Board of Directors for the PPO Hamilton/Niagara branch.
Through the PPOC, I am ever-expanding my knowledge on photography, marketing, lighting, posing, branding, packaging, and so on. I am always striving to improve my skill-set and grow as a photographer so that I can better serve my clients.
I recently submitted 4 images for the Professional Photographers of Canada’s National Image Salon, where professional photographers from around the nation submit their images for judging and competition. This year, I was told that there were over 1200 entries from Canada’s top photographers, and I am proud to say that mine scored amount the best. Two of my four images were accepted and displayed in the National Salon, with a score of “Accepted” and “Merit”.
I am privileged to have received this honour, and I am excited to continue to improve and grow my photography.
Below is the Press Release from the PPOC. Below it are the two images that were accepted into the salon.
