April 18, 2016: Calgary, Alberta – Charlottetown photographer Louise Vessey MPA SPA F/PPOC Atl , has had 2 images selected for inclusion in a national exhibition celebrating the best of Canadian professional photography. A panel of master photographers judged the best works submitted by professional photographers from across Canada and only accepted outstanding images into the 2016 National Image Salon of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC). The salon was exhibited this week during the Canadian Imaging Conference, the annual conference of the PPOC held this year in Calgary, Alberta. In addition to demonstrating the makers’ ability to make outstanding images for their clientele, inclusion into the salon earns the maker merits toward several designations offered to PPOC members, including the prestigious Craftsman of Photographic Arts and Master of Photographic Arts. Louise has already achieved her Master of Photographic Arts and her first Bar. The competition features entries from across Canada in 20 different classes, including press, portrait, architecture and fashion. Kent Wong MPA SPA F/PPABC, Chair of the National Exhibition Committee, said: “We were thrilled to see so many inspiring entries in the competition this year. The salon images clearly demonstrate the exceptional skill and quality that professionals bring to the medium of photography.”
