Our JPPG family extends a congratulations to several of our JPPG Members on their recent accomplishments and recognitions!
Certified Professional Photographer
We are very excited that our own Tammy Czigan has recently become JPPG’s newest Certified Professional Photographer (CPP). This is a designation that less than 3% of all professional photographers earn. Those who have earned the Professional Photographic Certification have passed a comprehensive written exam measuring their technical expertise, and have successfully submitted their work to a panel of judges for review and approval. Individuals must be re-certified every 3 years to retain their certification. Tammy proudly joins our other JPPG CPPs Cliff Addy, Jennifer Mosley-Connell, Damon Fecitt, Kevin Floyd, Susan Michal, and Keely Deuschle. Congratulations, Tammy! Learn more about Certification.

PPA President Susan Michal
We’d be remiss if we didn’t congratulate our own Susan Michal on an incredible year as PPA’s President. And what a way to end the year – an amazing convention in Nashville, TN with record attendance of 11,000+. We are so very proud of you, Susan!
