Babe Sarver of Ahwatukee Foothills reaffirmed his status as an elite photographer, once again completing the requirements to maintain his Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) designation from Professional Photographers of America (PPA).
Since 1999 Babe has been certified under the guidelines established by the National Institute of Credentialing Excellence. PPA currently recognizes fewer than 2,500 Certified Professional Photographers.
With Production Manager Arlene Sarver, Babe owns and operates Babe’s Photos in the Ahwatukee Foothills. Babe’s Photos is a commercial and portrait photography studio specializing in creating commercial images of facilities, personnel and products that enhance a business’s brand and portrait images that preserve family memories.
“When people hire a photographer, it is important to know that the person behind the lens is professionally accredited.” Babe said, “It is our job to determine how to appropriately utilize the tools at hand to make the best possible image for our customer’s needs. We have found that we achieve the greatest results when we ‘get it right…in the camera’ vs creating something in the computer.

To earn the CPP designation Babe initially passed a written exam, submitted images for peer review followed by PPA’s final accreditation evaluation which included interviews of existing clients.
Certification must be renewed every three years, ensuring continuing confidence in the professionalism of Certified Professional Photographers. It declares that the photographer is one who has achieved and maintains a high standard including:
