The Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) has an “Accreditation” program that denotes photographers as a specialist in specific areas of photography. The photographer submits 10 images in that particular category that follows it’s guidelines. For instance in the case of Children & Infant Portrait category the requirements are: Ten (10) images of ten (10) different children (12 and under) in ten (10) different poses from ten (10) different photo sessions, and have enough variety in the submission to show the photographer’s creative and technical ability. A variety of head and shoulders, 3/4 and full-length poses must be shown. Singles, Infants (new born) and groups (2 or more people) must be represented and may include environmental images. The submission is judged by a panel of experts and all 10 images must be approved for a successful Accreditation in that category.
I now have 10 Accreditations to my name. I’m proud to say that I’m 100 for 100 – meaning I’ve never had even one image rejected for any reason.
Here are my successful images from this category.
