    NHPPA prides itself in promoting the importance of continuing education to help its members achieve their personal and professional artistic goals. To further that spirit of learning, each year the NHPPA awards scholarship monies to its members. This year a total of 14 scholarships were presented at the meeting held on June 5.

    The Francis Sullivan and Bob Raiche Memorial scholarship in the amount of $800.00 is intended for use to attend a PPA affiliate school. This year there were two recipients of this scholarship.

    The General scholarship in the amount of $525.00 may be used to attend courses related to photography or the business of photography or for the purchase of books or other educational material related to photography. This year there were 12 general scholarships awarded.

    Jay Goldsmith of Portsmouth, N.H. was presented with the National Award at the recent Awards Banquet held as part of the Annual Convention on April 27, 2019 at the Margate Resort in Laconia, N.H. The National Award is a special honor which recognizes outstanding services in professional photography.

    Since joining NHPPA in the early 1980s, Jay has continually given back to the photography industry in New Hampshire by sharing his knowledge and expertise speaking at various meetings, seminars, and conventions as well as conducting personal workshops. During the time Jay served on the Board of NHPPA, he was responsible for many innovative changes, most notable of which was establishing the library which served as a valuable learning resource for members. 

    Jay is perenially curious and never stops learning about and sharing photography techniques. In the spirit of bringing photography into the community, Jay had what was intended to be a one-year holiday exhibit in the seacoast area that was met with such enthusiasm, it turned into a four-year journey demonstrating how a 19th century platinum/palladium printmaking technique can be combined with modern digital photography.

    Congratulations to Jill Kyle of Auburn, N.H. who recently received her Certified Professional Photographer credential. The CPP credential was started in 1977 as a way to identify professional photographers who have demonstrated technical competence through a written exam and photographic image submission. No matter the field, people take certifications very seriously. It’s a way of showing dedication and expertise. Becoming a CPP lets potential clients know that you take your craft – and their needs – seriously.

    Here is what Jill had to say about the experience, "What a journey this has been! In December 2017, I set my sights on earning the credentials of being a Certified Professional Photographer with the Professional Photographers of America. At first I thought the test and image submission would be easy, but I got to tell you, I've never taken a more challenging process than this one. When I started, many professionals who have gone through the process said, 'this certification will change you.' And I must admit yes it has. I look back at my work from two years ago and can see how much the quality of my work and attention to detail has improved."

    If you are interested in pursuing your CPP certification, feel free to contact the NHPPA Certification Liaison Tim Cameron at
