WE ARE THE TREND
Female photographers make up 50% of the industry, yet over 75% of represented photographers are still men. It’s not a question of talent; women comprise the most gifted photographers across the globe. It’s not about what female photographers should do to be seen; we are creating the trends the world follows. But now we are coming together, raising our collective voices to reveal something that’s never been much of a secret: the most exceptional photographers in every genre, all over the world, across the spectrum of age, race, and culture are also women. We are powerful. We are unstoppable. We are Click Pro.
WE ARE COMMUNITY
CLICK PRO is a modern women’s network of highly skilled professional photographers and independent artists.
Our members’ work spans all photographic specialties, including newborn & maternity, children & families, weddings, seniors, fine art, still life, documentary and more. Membership to Click Pro is application-based, and an invitation is extended on the basis of an applicant’s portfolio evaluation.
What is the basis for the portfolio evaluation?
Our Standards were create along with Click Pro in 2010, evolving into what we have today. Applicants are required to submit a 150 image portfolio of work that is critiqued on the following seven categories. Depending on the application level (basic, personalized, or portfolio), the applicant's portfolio is reviewed by 1-3 panelists, including the Click Pro Director, Courtney Larson. An overall average of 32+ points (out of a possible 42) is required for admission.
The portfolio Standards considers mastery of the following factors on a scale of 1-6:
Color and White Balance
Use of Light
Creativity & Intention
Who is on the click pro evaluation panel?
Our panelists have all undergone a rigorous vetting process. This process includes, but is not limited to, an evaluation of the work via same Click Pro Standards, and a series of conversations that indicate the technical and creative expertise of each applicant. In addition, each one of our panelists is an active photographer who consistently produces high-quality work. Our panelists know how to make images in manual, are masters of exposure, use of light and composition, and have the visual literacy to view images with an objective eye.
What they're saying
"Sometimes it can be difficult to find your inner voice as a photographer and artist, but when you have an entire network of amazing, vision-seeking, storytelling, trailblazing women in your corner... it makes it a little easier!"

"This means so much more to me than recognition or validity. It's being in community with other incredibly talented women who support each other to no end."
KATHLEEN WHITE | MEMBER SINCE 2018
"The energy & encouragement in this community is completely underrated. I thought I had an idea of what "pro" meant, but it is more than a badge, more than an accolade... it's a door to connecting with amazing people with unreal talent and I am so incredibly honored to be part of it."

Click Pro, to me, is an opportunity. An opportunity to learn from other talented and distinguished photographers. An opportunity to uplift and inspire up and coming
photographers. An opportunity to reach new levels that might not otherwise have even been presented to me. An opportunity to prove AND improve myself. Click Pro is a journey of ups and downs that come with many revelations about self and I’m thankful it’s a journey I get to take part in.

Being a Click Pro means that I have a circle of artists and friends that I can exhange ideas with and learn from, people I would have never met otherwise. It means that I have access to a wonderful group of people who lives and breathes photography just like I do. I get to see the whole world from their perspective, and it is really a privilege.
