Award-Winning Photographer Captures Craftsman Degree

For Guy T, being a photographer means so much more than simply looking through a viewfinder and delivering professional results day in and day out. It’s about using his talents to give back through selfless service and education. If he happens to be recognized by his peers with awards and accolades along the way, then that’s just part of the journey. “What gets you there is far more important to me,” said Guy T, owner of What’s That Guy’s Name? | PHOTOGRAPHY BY GUY T. “Being able to share something I know with others who don’t know it yet, or being able to take someone from Point A to Point B and elevate their skill set is what’s important. The journey is far more special than the destination. They are just nice enough to give me an item I can hang around my neck. It’s nice to be recognized by my peers.”

The “they” Guy T referred to is the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), which awarded him with his long-awaited Craftsman degree on January 21st at a ceremony at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta. Guy T walked across the stage to receive a degree he’s been pursuing for more than two years. It is yet another symbol of his passion for life, photography, and the expectations he has placed on himself since leaving a 26-plus year career as a corporate educator just more than six years ago. According to the PPA, “Awarded for service as a speaker, author, or mentor, this degree shows that you have gone beyond the creation of images and dedicated your time to move the industry forward and encourage education.”

The Craftsman degree is one of a litany of accolades for Guy T, who is constantly in the know on the latest trends and techniques that separate good photographers from the best. Beyond numerous local awards and rave reviews from happy customers throughout Denton County, he has been named an Associate Fellow of the Texas Professional Photographers Association. Guy T will also step in as an instructor with the Texas School of Photography, an affiliate of the PPA, April 28th-May 3rd to teach an Adobe Lightroom class called “Unlock Lightroom (And Upgrade Your Life!).”

Bottom line, photographers can be found at every turn these days. But if you’re in the market for a corporate event photographer, quality headshots, professional images of you and your business to enhance online presence, portraits, senior photos, and fine art, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who approaches his full-time job as a photographer with as much experience, passion, personality, and commitment to his clients as Guy T. “I don’t think I’m done yet,” Guy T said of his willingness to continue learning and sharing his knowledge with others. “When I can learn more and produce even better results for my clients, that’s really the reward.”
