Dear potential client,
Thank you for looking into Ted York Photography. I hope you will see the difference in what I do.
From the moment I created Ted York Photography I set out to be as professional in my artistic and technical work as I possibly could. I immediately joined the Intermountain Professional Photographers Association (IPPA). Shortly thereafter I became a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) the largest non-profit professional photographer’s association in the world. Within 18 months I passed the PPA’s written certification exam and portfolio review and was officially recognized as a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) by the PPA. Several years later I walked across the stage and received my PPA Master of Photography Degree of which I’m very proud. That award was followed by an invitation into the American Society of Photographers (ASP). In 2017 I received my PPA Craftsman Degree. I have been awarded 8 Photographer of the Year awards at the local, regional, and international levels as well as various awards for individual photographic prints.
I spend thousands of dollars on education to keep me abreast of the changes in photography as well as improve my skills and continue to do so. While anyone these days can take a snap shot (an important part of recording history.), there is a lot of knowledge that goes into the artistry of great professional photography. I spend a lot of time learning how to make my camera to do what I need it to do. I study lighting and posing so that I can flatter my clients and create an image that will draw you in. I work to capture the image correctly in the camera so that Photoshop becomes a tool for enhancing, not correcting images. Finally, I try to avoid fads so that your image will be timeless. I want you to not only enjoy your photographs today, but I want you to enjoy those portraits years from now. I also want your children and their children to enjoy the images I create for you.
While I’m proud of my accomplishments I’ve not here to brag. I just want you to know that if you are looking for a professional photographer; take a look at a PPA certified professional. My standing invitation to you is to come See The Difference. I think you will like what you see.
Sincerely, Ted York PPA Certified, PPA Master of Photography, Photographic Craftsman.
