I'm Certified Professional Photographer. Member of the PPA and PPANJ. I've received several awards and degrees from these two professional organizations. So if you want specifics just e-mail me and I can tell you all about them.
I've been shooting since 1998 and it's amazing to see, when clients come back over the years, ho much they've changed. At this point in my carrier I shoot only what I want and not what I have to. NO TFP(CD)
And yes, I do hire models from time to time when the job calls for it.
