When you are noticed by your unique imagery, the industry also notices
I am proud to announce the partnership with USB Memory Direct
In 2009 at my first ever workshop I met a lot of influential people in this industry and they told me that they were going to be keeping an eye on me. I asked why and one of the representatives stated "Because your imagery is going to take you places and is going to get you noticed!" As I walked away from that representative I questioned what exactly he was in me and my imagery? Today in 2018 I have not only made an impact in the industry but also on other photographers who are passionate about learning what I have to offer. I teach independently as well as for an organization that I am very passionate about called the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). My first accomplishment with the PPA was obtaining my Certification as a Professional Photographer.
Being only 1 of 11 fully Ceritified Professional Photographers in the entire State of New Mexico I was able to separate myself from other competitors. This also allowed me to meet other influential people in this industry who would further accelerate my growth as a photographer but also to obtain sponsorships. I began to educate others by offering mentorships to teach them everything from business, sales, marketing and the highly technical aspect of photography. Year after Year I educated photographers of all levels by instructing and coinstructing PPA's Super One Day education campaign events. These events are what is required to obtain a degree with the organization and by teaching others I was awarded my first degree as a Photographic Craftsman. This degree also showed the industry that I am a professional photographer and not just a guy with a camera.
The Photographic Craftsman Degree is one of the highest recognitions for speaking, writing and/or mentoring in photography. This year I was approached once again by a reputable company in the digital industry by offering high quality custom flash drives. USB Memory Direct is a leader in the photographic industry and serves other industries well. They are based out of Cooper City, Florida and offer different styles of flashdrives which you can check out here https://www.usbmemorydirect.com. Here are a few examples of what they offer.
