What is the benefit of hiring a PPOC Accredited Photographer?

PPOC has created a procedure whereby our photographers must complete a successful Accreditation judging process by submitting 10 images to prove they are proficient in specific genres.  Currently there are over 70 Accreditation categories.  PPOC photographers also abide by a strict Code of Ethics .  They are not permitted to advertise themselves as PPOC members until this process is complete.

I'm not happy with the portraits my photographer took.  What can I do?

You can let them know your concerns directly and work with them to find a satisfactory solution, whether that be in the form of a reshoot, adjustment in pricing, or refund.  If you cannot work it out with your photographer, you have the option of filing a complaint with our Ethics Chair, ethics@ppoc.ca provided your photographer is a PPOC member in good standing.
