The photographer submits 10 images in that particular category that follows it’s guidelines. For instance in the case of the Family Portrait category the requirements are: Ten (10) images of ten (10) different families showing ten (10) different poses from ten (10) different sessions in ten (10) different locations. Must have enough variety in the submission to show the photographer’s creative and technical ability. Head and shoulders, 3/4 and full-length poses must be shown.

Four (4) images must be outdoor environmental portraits and four (4) images must be studio or indoor portraits. The remaining two (2) can be from either environmental or studio/indoor. No wedding/engagement portraits are accepted in this 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.
