Celebrating Our Masters Degree Achievements! | Professional Photographers of America’s Imaging USA Convention 2019

Lindsay’s getting ready to present and pictures from the Masters Degree Ceremony!
We’re pictured with PPA President of the Board, Stephen Thetford.

Each year, we prioritize attending the largest professional photography convention in the world: PPA’s Imaging USA. PPA is also the largest professional photography organization in the world and celebrated it’s 150th anniversary this year. They hosted the convention in Atlanta, GA – the home of PPA’s headquarters.

We are committed to continuing our education and elevating our client experience to offer the very best in artistry and finished art, and Imaging USA plays an essential role in fulfilling that commitment.

Jonathan committed 3 years ago to competing in the annual International Print Competition (IPC). The judging panel scores each entry based on 12 elements that go beyond professional level to true artistry of image-making. Through merits earned for superior photographic competence, advanced education, and service to the industry, photographers can receive the Master of Photography degree. We are thrilled that Jonathan received his Masters this year!

Additionally, Jonathan was recognized for excellence as a Silver Medal recipient for his IPC photography entries. His work that earned the silver medal are below.

Over the years, we’ve been excited for Lindsay to become part of PPA’s leadership as an elected Council representative. She’s also served on the Education Advisory Committee for the Board of Directors. She’s also become a presenter on the national platform, teaching courses at both Imaging 2018 and 2019. Her teaching and service earned her the degree of Photographic Craftsman, and she received that degree at convention.

It was truly special to present each other with our degrees at the ceremony last week. And yes, we had a blast dressing up and making it a special night to remember.
