I am Alisha Cline. I am a Certified Professional Photographer and 2018 Liaison, sit on GPPA's Board of Directors leading Marketing, mentor, and am a savvy entrepreneur in northwest Metro Atlanta. I am known for my award winning images, upbeat education programs, creative marketing style, and devotion to the growth of the photographic industry through education and hard work.
I am goal driven. In 2019 I will Walk at Imaging to receive my Photographic Craftsman Degree, and am on track to receive my Master Photographer Degree with a goal of 2021. When I want something, I ask how to get it, then work for it. I create a game plan, tackle it, and earn the reward.
I am involved. I joined the Professional Photographers of America in 2010 as an Active Member. I volunteer every year I can at Imaging, compete at all levels of print competition. I have been a platform speaker at the State and Regional levels, travel to teach at local affiliate guilds, and host workshops at my studio as well as Super 1 Days. I am a member of my state affiliate, GPPA, and volunteer on the Board of Directors as Marketing Director. I attend as many classes as I can for my own continuing education to raise our industry as well.
I give back. I volunteer 4 days each year to instruct Super 1 Days - teaching on topics ranging from learning how to switch from shoot and share to IPS to advanced lighting and posing and instruct classes for PPA Affiliate monthly meetings. I mentor professional photographers from Hawaii to Maine as well as students from technical colleges and local high schools wanting to go into photography as a career.
I am Sponsored! I am honored to be part of Miller's Professional Imaging's and SweetLight System's speaker teams. I couldn't be more grateful to have both of these amazing companies as part of my speaking and photography careers!

Fine Art: Mixing Medias
In this demo program, Alisha Cline, CPP will show you how to add gel mediums, encaustic wax, and more to canvases, photographic prints, and wood prints that adds value and artistry to what we do. Some Affiliates encourage attendees to bring their own art supplies for a hands on class (tables are a must) - it's different and it's FUN!
"Wow! If you want to meet a dedicated speaker, you gotta meet Alisha Cline. In preparing for her workshop she loaded her car with props so that the attendees would have the opportunity to be hands on and create their own sets. She answered questions about everything from safety in dealing with babies to safety when staging the set, discussed lighting, and extended the scheduled time so that we could play longer (with building our sets) and make more questions! Thank you Alisha for going above and beyond!
We also had the generous support of Millers Professional Imaging, Photobiz, and our very own Vintage Now Modern, a super cool antique store in downtown Greenville."
