DOES MY WORK WILL LOOK LIKE YOURS TO BE CERTIFIED?

While we appreciate and value each photographer’s unique style, certification under our brand doesn’t require your work to mimic Serap’s style. We celebrate diversity and individuality within our team. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Encouraging Individual Style:

    • Policy: We encourage photographers to develop and showcase their individual style. Diversity in styles is what makes our team vibrant and appealing to a broad range of clients.
  2. Certification Criteria:

    • Requirement: Certification is based on your skills, professionalism, and ability to capture genuine moments. The focus is on your mastery of essential photography techniques relevant to maternity, newborn, and family sessions.
  3. Authenticity is Key:

    • Guidance: While we provide guidance and education through Serap Seker Academy, we aim to help you refine your unique style. Authenticity in your work is highly valued.
  4. Portfolio Evaluation:

    • Process: Your portfolio will be evaluated based on composition, storytelling, technical proficiency, and the ability to connect with clients. The emphasis is on delivering high-quality and emotionally resonant photography.
  5. Creative Freedom:

    • Approach: We believe in giving our photographers creative freedom. Your work should reflect your personality and resonate with your clients, even as you maintain the professional standards set by us.
  6. Continuous Growth:

    • Support: Certification is not the end; it’s the beginning of a journey of continuous growth. You’ll have access to ongoing education, support, and resources to refine and expand your skills.

Remember, being certified by us means you’ve met a set of professional standards, not that your work needs to mirror a specific style. We celebrate the richness that comes from the variety of artistic approaches within our team.
