Sherron Sheppard began her career in photography 12 years ago after many years as a traditional artist. As an artist, Sherron taught watercolor techniques for fifteen years and was a seasonal instructor for eight years teaching watercolor painting at Yosemite National Park. Sherron is a PPA Certified Photographer and holds her Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees. Sherron and husband Ron photographed weddings for 10 years. Recently they transitioned out of wedding into other areas, including presenting programs and workshops to amateur and professional photographers. Sherron teaches classes at the California Professional Photographers West Coast School, conducts private workshops, and co-instructs an annual Equine Photoshop/Photography Workshop. Sherron’s workshops are geared to teaching digital “ART” and go beyond just demonstrating Photoshop techniques. Sherron helps her students turn their images in high end art pieces with the artistic expression and quality of traditional art. She gives her students the skills to develop their own individual creative style and brand themselves as artist. Sherron teaches basic Photoshop skills and numerous digital artistic techniques. In 2003 the Professional Photographers of California (PPC) awarded Sherron “Photographer of the Year” in the Journalistic Wedding Category. Again in 2005, PPC awarded Sherron “Photographer of the Year”, in a second category, the Illustrative. Once again in 2006, Sherron earned her third “Photographer of the Year” in the Illustrative category. Plus, she was awarded PPC’s 2006 overall “Photographer of the Year” with the highest print case total, Best of Show and also the “Peoples Choice Award”. In January 2006 at the (PPA) Professional Photographers of America convention, Sherron was awarded “Platinum Photographer of the Year” with 3 Loan Collection Images and was invited to join the American Society of Photographers (ASP). In January 2008 Sherron’s image “A Passage of Time” scored a perfect score of 100 at the PPC Print Competitions and was awarded Best of Show. Her second print “Lonely Days, Lonely Nights” scored 96. PPC also awarded Sherron her fourth California “Photographer of the Year” in Illustrative, and overall “Photographer of the Year” with the highest print case total. In addition, Sherron was awarded the Canon Par Excellence Award and ASP State and Regional Awards, plus the PPA Certified Photographers High Score award.
