Local Photographer Receive 'Elite' Status

New Richmond Photographer Nate Peterson, owner of NP Design & Photography Studio, has been named to receive an Elite membership from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Nate is one of the few to earn the Elite membership - yet another milestone in his career behind the camera.

"We are encouraging photographers to be more and grow as artist," said Kristen Hartman, director of PPA. "Nate continues to raise the bar in our industry and has certainly earned his place among the elite."

Nate qualified for Elite membership through continued education, image competition and a continued quest for excellence.

"This truly in an honor to be recognized with so many other great photographers in our industry," said Nate Peterson.

In addition to his new Elite status, Nate, who is currently a 'Master Photographer' and 'Certified Professional Photographer' will be receiving his 'Master Craftsman in Photography' this coming January in Atlanta at the Professional Photographers Association annual convention. This degree is awarded for service as a speaker and mentor in dedicating time to move the industry forward and encourage education.

NP Design & Photography creates unique portrait photography for high school seniors, families and corporate branding. For more information, visit
