I am now seeking fit, female models to benefit each other’s portfolios.
Mine will be submitted images towards my Professional Photographers of America (PPA) images required to complete my Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) certification.
CPP Mission Statement: To acknowledge and validate a consistent standard by which professional photographers can achieve and maintain a recognizable mark of excellence.
The Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) program from PPA assures others of a photographer’s knowledge, experience and continuance to develop new skills and techniques. It is a declaration of his or her professional competence! The certification program assures the general public that as a Certified Professional Photographer, he or she is a quality professional.
I can attest first-hand to the fact that achieving this is not an easy accomplishment! There are two parts to it: the first is a comprehensive exam of 100 questions to test one’s knowledge of camera and lighting settings, color theories, perspective and problem-solving with portrait client scenarios. I have taken and passed that one hurdle but am now working on building a portfolio for the compulsory lighting technique images. This is why I am now seeking models.
I need these models to be physically fit so I can easily pose them into the positions that will aid in demonstrating good posing and specific lighting techniques. This will be a mutually beneficial relationship as the chosen models will receive many digital images for their own portfolios and/or prints.
