Welcome to the exclusive portrait gallery for the environmental accreditation
In this gallery you will see images that were submitted for an accreditation with the Professional Photographers of Canada. Accreditation's are judged by qualified judges. To be a judge you must take a judging clinic only put on my the association once a year. To be qualified as a judge you need to have a Craftsmanship of Photographic Arts designation and with this accreditation completed, I qualified to take a judge course, how cool is that. Each category submitted needs to meet a criteria of certain types of images such as singles, couples, groups and children. Each image must be matted with a key line around the image.
Accreditation is the degree of elevation above the general membership level, and is achieved by submitting samples of the applicant’s photography in a chosen category. 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, Center of Interest, Lighting, Subject Matter, Technique and Story Telling.
A minimum of one accreditation is required to qualify for a Craftsman designation and two Accreditation's are needed for a Masters designation. To be accredited is to be recognized as an expert in a given field.
