Earlier this month I had the honor of receiving my Photographic Craftsman degree from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). The degree was presented to me by PPA President Lori Craft, Hon.M.Photog.Cr., in San Antonio, Texas, at Imaging USA, which is PPA’s annual convention.
The Photographic Craftsman degree represents demonstrated accomplishments in the photography industry as a speaker, writer, and mentor. The work in achieving this degree spanned a four-year period.
Here I am pictured with Lori along with Bryan Welsh, who I selected as my sponsor. His guidance and leadership over the last few years was a key part of helping me earn my degree. Maybe next time I’ll smile?
