Certified Professional Photographer Crash Study Course or Figuring Out What You Don’t Know

April 11, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT


The Certified Professional Photographer designation (CPP) is designed to prove that a photographer knows the basic techniques and concepts needed to become a professional. This all-day crash study course is designed to prepare you for the written test you will take right after the class. Colby McLemore, the instructor, just earned his CPP, and this course was designed directly from what he wished he had known before his written test. Even better, you will be given an action plan for leveraging the process of earning your CPP from a marketing standpoint to help translate it into dollars. You would be hard pressed to find an easier, quicker, or more affordable way to earn your CPP. TNPPA president Dana Barrett felt this would be a good way to increase the number of CPPs in our organization, so here is your opportunity. We hope to see you there!

“Colby has a great sense of humor. He is very animated and kept things exciting at all time.” — Whitney D.

“Great enthusiasm plus in-depth knowledge plus great teaching skills equals a very useful experience.” — Ray H.

“Colby’s enthusiasm for photography certainly infects everything he teaches. Participants are treated as equals, their vision and abilities respected. Positive reinforcement is Colby’s specialty.” — Mike C.

This is a Professional Photographers of America (PPA) Continuing Education workshop. You do not have to be a member of PPA or a professional to participate. If you are a PPA member, participants will receive one service merit towards your Master or Craftsman degree. It also counts toward continuing education for Certified Professional Photographers. If you are planning on taking the test, direct message Colby. He will have some tips for you.


Cost for the event is $35 for non-members and $20 for members of PPMT.
