Why become an AMP Certified Professional Music Photographer?

Industry professionals including publicists, record labels, magazines and publications seek out experienced photographers, knowing that working with a professional means a better result. The CPMP designation means that they will deliver quality images through proven technical expertise. Potential clients require a high level of professionalism that they can count on, and a certification provides that extra level of confidence. With many claiming to be a pro competing for the same job opportunities to work musicians, concerts and music festivals, certification sets you apart from the competition.

Pricing Justification

While anyone with a camera can call themselves a photographer, they ultimately hurt the ability for a true professional to charge appropriately for their services. With a CPMP certification, it shows the level of expertise and outcome that a client can expect. Clients understand that professionals invest in equipment, additional training and understanding the challenges associated in photographing live music that deliver quality images.

Peer-Validation

You can’t just declare yourself certified. Certification is granted by Association of Music Photographers, the only association dedicated to music photography that speaks volumes about your expertise. All certifications must be renewed every two years to keep up with changes in the industry, gear and photography techniques.
