      well they rejected me the first time I applied!

      I know they wouldn't like his business practices 1 iota.

        Actually from what I remember the website saying (I'm a member also), the WPJA has strict standards of professionalism. If anyone does have any dealings with this photographer and he acts unethically or does not provide services as promised, I believe you can report the information to WPJA and they will look into it. Of course that's just off hand from what I remember reading, haven't checked it lately.

        As far as the WPJA membership, you have to apply and then get accepted at which time there is a membership fee for photographers who decide to join. Not everyone gets accepted.

        edit: BTW...MD, beautiful engagement pictures! Even something free doesn't necessarily *mean* free as time is valuable :)

          It is really sad that we ¨vendors¨ do not take advantage of the opportunity to maintain our services in a suitable level. To be bannead of a forum like this one by not respecting the simple rules, closes the doors to share, to grow and to let see our work.
          Respecting we are respected

            Many vendors follow the rules & are a great asset to the forum. It's awesome that Tammy set up the forum in a way that vendors can participate because it's great to have them around. But, some people just don't know what's appropriate I guess. This guy was really out of line.

              Morgan, I agreed with you and Tammy in all.

                  i wonder what they'd think if they knew about his business practices
                  Although they don't accept everyone, I know a few who were accepted with less than 6 wedding experience. 1 photographer only shot 4 as a second shooter! They are just there for the money,just like any other wedding organizations. They are no longer strict as they used to be 5+ years ago. Photographers join just so they can put a sticker on their wall saying something like "Member of Professional Wedding Association of XXXXX".
