I am Alisha Cline – a Photographic Craftsman, Certified Professional Photographer, sponsored PPA educator, and current Georgia Photographer of the Year. I co-own Cline Portraits with my husband Joshua. Together, we have photographed portraits for hundreds of families since starting the studio in 2009. We are known for creating timeless works of fine art our clients proudly display in their homes. Our portrait style tells the stories of our clients’ in bold colors and rich tones; we prefer to shoot in our studio but will travel to location.
When we are not behind the camera or traveling to teach across the US at photographic conventions, we’re home spending time with family and our two Labradors, get crafty, playing tennis, or doing a show with Joshua’s band (he plays bass and sings).
I enjoy setting hefty goals for myself and accomplishing them. In 2018 I earned 10 photographic awards in the Georgia print competition including Best of Show - Portraits, 1st Place in Portraits of a Man, CPP Award (print score of 100), and Photographer of the Year. In 2019 I’ve earned my Craftsman Photographer Degree from the PPA and was accepted into the American Society of Photographers. My next goal is my Georgia Fellowship Degree in 2020 and PPA Master Photographer Degree in 2021. I volunteer time to GPPA on the Board of Directors, to PPA for photographic educational events, and am a 2019 CPP Liaison.
Together, we have grown our skills to include mentoring other artists from around the USA. I am a sponsored speaker for the Miller's Professional Imaging Speaker Team, Larson Speaker team, and partner with Denny Manufacturing. As a team, Joshua and I enjoy teaching others how to successfully establish a desired brand, build client relationships, and grow as artists. We also continue our education throughout the year through conferences, online courses, retreats, and being mentored by other industry leaders.
