The Portrait Masters, consisting of elite founders and members, a few of whom are world famous photographers Richard Wood, Sue Bryce and Susan Stripling, created this program to acknowledge, honor, and celebrate high-quality, professional work and to arm professional photographers with public recognition deserved in their respective field.

The awards and recognition is conducted at least twice a year, and photographers are given an opportunity to work their way into accreditation to the official Portrait Masters elite group, with their own profile. Successful photographers who are admitted to The Portrait Masters are required to adhere to a strict standard and are evaluated annually.

Emmarie has achieved Portrait Master status and is currently listed as an Associate in the affiliate program. Her next step is to achieve Masters level in the near future.
