Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) has partnered with the New York Institute of Photography (NYIP) to offer an industry first – the WPPIC, Wedding and Portrait Photographer Certification – an online, educational certificate program, exclusively for wedding and portrait photographers who are members of WPPI.
The program is designed to set a new level of professional standards for guiding the artistry and business practices of wedding and portrait photography worldwide. WPPIC will become trained and certified in technical skills, creative artistry and business professionalism. Once WPPI certified, wedding and portrait photographers can distinguish themselves in the field and more successfully promote that they have the necessary skills to photograph priceless, once-in-a-lifetime events to potential clients. The letters WPPIC following your name will show your prospective clients that you are certified by Wedding and Portrait Photographers International.
The WPPIC Certification program was established by Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) and the New York Institute of Photography (NYIP), a nationally accredited distance education training institution by the Distance Education Training Council (DETC) and licensed by the State of New York Department of Education. The certification curriculum was designed by some of the foremost wedding and portrait photographers, including Roberto Valenzuela, Luke Edmonson and former WPPI Director of Education, Jason Groupp.
