I am Alisha Cline. I am a Photographic Craftsman, Certified Professional Photographer and 2019 Liaison, Georgia Photographer of the Year 2018, member of ASP, Marketing Director for GPPA, 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. My next goals include GPPA Fellow, earning ASP Education Medallion, and my Master Photographer Degree, eventually becoming an Affiliate Juror and ASP Fellow. I am a competitor by nature and an overachiever.
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. I instruct classes for PPA Affiliate monthly meetings, including several throughout the year for my own GPPA. I mentor professional photographers from Hawaii to Maine as well as students from local 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 Larson speaker teams. I also partner with Denny Mfg. I couldn't be more grateful to have these amazing companies as part of my speaking and photography careers!

Affiliate BOD Member Reviews
"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."
-Sabina CavalliProfessional Photographers of South Carolina Alisha has always been dedicated to education and giving back. It's one thing to have a speaker come to simply instruct, it's another to have them come and invest in your group. She took the extra time to add things to the class that would allow anyone in our area to apply the knowledge, but even more then that, she went above and beyond by helping attendees all throughout the event. For her it doesn't stop when her instruction concludes, it continues throughout the entire event and after. Thank you for being such a giving and thoughtful instructor to all those who wish to grow in this industry. -Rachel EdgingtonProfessional Photographers of Missouri
