CPP Study Guide

Join Steve Kozak live on Zoom for two outstanding CPP Prep Classes.

“Exposures and Meters” will focus on all aspects of preparing for questions dealing with the second section of the Test Specifications on the CPP Exam. Participants will be introduced to topics such as types of meters, equivalent exposures and the Sunny 16 rule.

“Lighting” will focus on all aspects of preparing for the third section of the Test Specifications. Steve will help you understand lighting ratios, lighting patterns, and additive fill flash and more.

Classes will be recorded and available to attendees for 6 weeks.

Each class will give you the confidence to get through these important topics and to better prepare your studies.

Each class is only $25 and covers a two-hour live presentation with opportunities to ask questions and get feedback. Classes will also be recorded and made available for a limited time for your review following the live presentation.

Sign up now and reserve your spot in one or both of these classes.

I am pleased to introduce my CPP Study Guide for those who are considering preparing to become a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) through Professional Photographers of America (PPA).

CPP WB 1-29-16 Edit.pub



The Certified Professional Photographer designation from PPA assures potential clients of a photographer’s knowledge, experience and continued development of new skills and techniques.

In short, Certification provides you with a tool for telling the world—and all those potential clients—why they should call you rather than a competitor down the street. Click here to learn more about PPA Certification.

The guide is created in color and is filled with illustrations and images to support the process of learning the material and preparing for the test.
