Emily Robinson, of Emily Karr Photography in Springville, has earned the Master of Photography degree from Professional Photographers of America (PPA).
The degree was presented to Robinson at the association’s annual convention, Imaging USA, held this past January in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Master of Photography degree means Robinson has met the standards of excellence set forth 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.
In 2019, she was one of only 95 recipients internationally. Robinson’s degrees — and all the expertise they require — illustrate her accomplishments and talent as one of a select few.
Robinson also received a Bronze Medal in the International Photographic Competition for the third consecutive year for her newborn work. All meriting images were captured during actual client sessions.
Robinson strives to create artistic, competition worthy images for her clients in every session. She said she feels that when clients are looking for a professional photographer, quality should surpass quantity. She said she feels that images of your loved ones should be displayed throughout your home for generations to admire and is blessed to work in a job she loves.
Robinson earned her Certified Professional Photographer in 2012, Qualified Newborn Photographer in 2019 and became certified in Newborn Safety in 2018.
She said she feels safety is a very important aspect that is often overlooked in the photographic industry, especially where newborns are concerned. She wants her clients to know that safety is something she takes very seriously.
Robinson was also elected to PPA Councilor in 2018 and will serve a three-year term representing PPA and the photographers in New York. Emily Karr Photography is a boutique studio which has become a destination for newborn portraits as well as high school senior photos.
Robinson also accepts a limited number of local and worldwide weddings each year so she can devote one-on-one attention to her clients. She also offers to mentor fellow photographers and has recently formed a new PPSNYS Chapter in Western New York, which meets monthly in her studio.
