WHAT IS THE BASIS FOR THE PORTFOLIO EVALUATION?
Our Standards were create at the inception of Click Pro in 2010, evolving into what we have today. Applicants are required to submit a 150 image portfolio of work that is critiqued in seven categories. Depending on the application level (Basic, Personalized, or Advanced), 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.
HOW SHOULD I ORGANIZE MY PORTFOLIO?
Applicants are required to show us 150 images with little restrictions on the HOW. You may submit your website or use another program such as Flickr, Pixiset, Shootproof, etc.
**NOTE: We require Advanced applicants submit their sets via Flickr with images numbered 1-150. This is our preferred method and helps us to identify images when giving feedback.
WHAT IS THE YEARLY MEMBERSHIP FEE?
Prospective Click Pros pay a non-refundable application fee. The yearly membership fee is $150..
WHAT KIND OF IMAGES SHOULD I INCLUDE?
Your portfolio should represent the best of what you do as a photographer. As such, we don’t have any requirements surrounding the genres you work in or the techniques you demonstrate. Some of our pros shoot senior portrait sessions, while others focus on personal documentary work, and still others are fine art or landscape specialists. Similarly, some shoot only film, while others shoot exclusively in black & white. Show us who YOU are as an artist, whatever that means to you.
I APPLIED AND WAS DENIED. HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT BEFORE APPLYING AGAIN?
We do not have any restrictions on how long you must wait before applying again. We encourage you to look at the feedback you received and submit again when you feel confident in your work.
I USED TO BE A CLICK PRO BUT LET MY MEMBERSHIP EXPIRE. DO I HAVE TO APPLY AGAIN?

IS CLICK PRO ONLY FOR WOMEN?
Anyone is invited to join, though our current mission is the advancement of women within the photography industry and we are actively pursuing change through creativity, community, and conversations.
