I’m so excited to announce my sixth accreditation through the Professional Photographers of Canada, this time in the Wildlife Photography category. My submission was accepted with an overall quality of “Good” (which is better than merely “Accepted”).
My first Accreditation and full membership with the Professional Photographers of Canada! An excerpt from the press release, below:
