  Alaska's Certified Professional Photographer  

When you hire a senior or family portrait photographer, you want the best. Shouldn't you use a professional photographer whose quality you can trust? Correct posing and lighting, the ability to anticipate those once-in-a-lifetime moments and most importantly, extensive experience, can make all the difference in the visual records of your life. You want to look your absolute best in portraits, whether you are a high school senior, a parent or anyone else wanting to capture a memory.  

Unfortunately, today in Anchorage and Wasilla, there are dozens of beginners with a digital camera and a website, claiming to be a "professional photographer." Advertising copy cats, advertising gimmicks, and fictitious claims abound. Ensuring that you get the best senior, or family photographer for the job can be a difficult task.

What is Certified?
Certified is a designation granted by Professional Photographers of America, the world’s leading certification agency of, and largest Association for, imaging professionals. Those who have earned PPA Certification have passed a comprehensive written examination measuring their technical and artistic expertise, and have successfully submitted their work to a panel of judges for review and approval.

As the leading certifying agency and association for imaging professionals, the Certification program is recognized throughout the industry as a sign of excellence. When you see a graduation photographer displaying the Certified seal, you can be assured that he or she is among the less than 8% of all imaging professionals who have successfully completed and maintained these requirements.
If the senior portrait photographer your considering claims industry recognition ask “what organization recognizes them” and what they did to earn this title? If they claim to be a “master Photographer” ask what university or professional group awarded them a degree or certificate.

Every five years, a Certified photographer must renew his or her credentials by participating in continuing education programs and periodically submitting senior portraits for critical evaluation. This helps assure you that Certified portrait photographers maintain their level of expertise and continue to develop new skills and techniques.
