I have recently been busy with photos, and I am now a certified Photo Organizer with the American association, The Photo Managers! Immediately following the last online conference I started with the certification process for professional organization of both analogue and digital photos. What do you need in terms of knowledge and materials, what do you do well and what not? There are many similarities with ‘ordinary’ organization, but the organization of photos nevertheless requires a certain level of ‘technical’ knowledge. I have already been able to pass on results and experience with clients.
The Photo Managers (TPM) is a large and rewarding community with an active membership. It enables me to keep up to date professionally by means of a lively Facebook group, webinars and courses. All my colleagues in ‘Foto Organizers Nederland’ (FON) are also members of TPM. This is a good basis on which to put photo organization on the map in the Netherlands. In any case, clients know where to find me.
