FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Some of the questions that should be asked by inquiring minds
FAQs for Assignment Photography
VALUE – What you end up with. It’s a combination of product quality, client experience and price – all must be agreeable to you.
GUARANTEE – If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied, please tell me. I’m your best option for making things right. When I go to buy a product or service I bring expectations and, no matter what I paid, I want those expectations met. I therefor assume that is true for anyone else and treat my clients accordingly.
DELIVERY – Simple: You and I agree on the delivery date and method, then I follow through.
SECURITY – Your personal information is treated the same way I want mine treated and I place an immensely high value on both yours and mine.
DRONE – Yes. One of my team members is FAA certified, yet charging less than most. If interested, I’ll put you in direct contact with him.
TRAVEL – Have passport, will go wherever. Other languages: German, Spanish, Italian, Norwegian and French. (Competency declines in the order given. 😊)
WHAT IS A CPP? – The Professional Photographers of America, has, to date, awarded the distinction of Certified Professional Photographer to fewer than 2600 individuals. In Louisville, KY, for instance, out of roughly 80 self-proclaimed pros, there are only 4 who are certified as of January 2019.
Certification involves passing a brain-draining exam. Then, a portfolio of images is sent to a panel of highly experienced and knowledgeable judges. If and when a portfolio passes, the applicant is certified. To remain certified, the CPP must continue to earn CEUs.
Truth be told, re: the image submission phase, what I thought would be a “walk in the park” with my decades of experience, turned into a humbling ‘trial by fire:’ My first two attempts failed! I even had the benefit of having been PPA certified back in the ‘Film Age.’ Obviously, the bar is higher now, which means for you that certification means a “better bet” of product and experience.
