Nick De Clercq earns PPOC Accreditation

I am extremely proud to announce that I am officially a PPOC accredited photographer!

On February 7-8th I earned an Accreditation in Architectural after a series of my architectural work passed a juried process at the Accreditation judging session in London, Ontario.
