We’re pleased to announce that Virginia Beach Photographer Ritchie Gregory of R Gregory Photography has earned the master of photography degree from Professional Photographers of America (PPA). The degree was presented to Ritchie by PPA president Susan Michal, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, ABI, at the association’s annual convention, Imaging USA, held February 1-3, 2015, in Nashville, Tennessee.
The master of photography degree is not merely a piece of paper. It means that Ritchie has met the standards of excellence set by PPA. She has been awarded this degree in recognition of her superior photographic competence demonstrated through photographic competition, advanced education and service to the profession.
Ritchie’s degrees—and all the expertise they require—highlight her accomplishments and talent as one of a select few.
Ritchie has been taking photos since she was a young girl and her technique and passion have grown over the years. Today she focuses primarily on photographing people and families, particularly in beach environments in Virginia Beach and Sandbridge, VA.
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the largest international nonprofit association created by professional photographers, for professional photographers. Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA’s roots date back to 1869. The nonprofit assists more than 27,000 members through protection, education and resources for their continued success.
