A program for photo organizer certification is offered by The Photo Managers. After completing the program, a certified photo organizer is listed as a professional on their website.
After years of working with my own and my family's photos, slides, documents and memorabilia, it makes sense for me to do it for others, therefore, I am in the process of getting photo organizer certification.
On joining The Photo Managers, a prospective organizer gains access to courses and training which build knowledge and professionalism.
Access is given to private FaceBook pages for members of The Photo Managers where advice and support from experienced professionals is freely available.
A series of modules must be studied and quizzes passed on the following topics:
The final and most important piece of the Photo Organizer Certification process is the Client Project.
In return for the discount on photo organizing services, the Client agrees to provide a reference for me, the Photo Organizer. The Photo Managers will contact them to answer a brief set of questions.
A paid client project must be completed and documented by the photo organizer.
The client should NOT be a friend or family.
This is where YOU come in!
I will need 1 or 2 clients to help to obtain my Photo Organizer Certification. These 1st clients will receive 25% off the regular price of whatever services I provide them from the list below marked in bold type. Please see the price list for more details.
The project(s) are required to include at least two of the photo management categories listed below:
Of these categories, I will initially offer the services in bold type. The 1st client(s) will get the discount off scanning, printed photo organizing, rehousing in archival storage* or backup, whichever service(s) they choose.
*The discount will apply to the services NOT the archival materials.
