Modern Photographers

November 29, 2008

I have been a member of PPA and WPPI for years, but anyone can join those professional associations…Mark Erik of Trash the Dress fame has created an elite referral network called Modern Photographers that you have to be accepted into. I am glad to announce that I am one of the first founding members in Maryland! As a founding member, I will be able to vote on new members. Pretty cool.

modernphotographers Here are some of the requirements to be accepted into membership:

  1. Portfolio review based on technical skill, creativity, and professionalism.
    (thank goodness someone has half a brain to require some technical skill as a req!!!)
  2. Active blog displaying recent work.
    (even though I am way behind!)
  3. Good reputation within your community, as well as the photographic community.
    (the cool thing about Modern Photographers is that it is already a close network where sharing information is valued)
  4. Backup equipment
    (seriously? do real photogs not have this?)
  5. Appropriate business and tax licenses
    (and yes – I am an S Corp. with all tax licenses and insurances – PRO baby!)
