    WASHINGTON, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- PrimeShot (http://www.PrimeShot.com),
 the world's premier professional photography service, announced today that its
 extensive network of photographers exceeds 2000 certified professionals
 working in all 50 states.  PrimeShot Certified Photographers benefit from the
 company's strategic partnerships with leading hotels and meeting planners.
 Alliances with Starwood and Wyndham provide access to the nation's high-end
 ballrooms and resorts.  Similar arrangements with Conferon, McGettigan
 Partners and HelmsBriscoe generate assignments from thousands of events each
 year.
     George Martinez of Fontana, Ca., the 2000th photographer to join the
 network, applied after reading press reports that detailed PrimeShot's rapid
 ascent in the world of professional photography.  "I felt that working with a
 nationally respected photography organization like PrimeShot would be a great
 career opportunity.  PrimeShot's relationships with major corporations and
 associations will open doors that were previously closed to me," commented
 Martinez, an award-winning professional event photographer with over 26 years
 of experience.  "I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my first PrimeShot
 assignment, from receiving the initial contract to actually shooting the
 event; all the people at PrimeShot have been professional and tremendously
 responsive to my needs in the field."
     Like all network photographers, Martinez had to attain PrimeShot
 certification, a proprietary process designed to ensure customers the highest
 quality photography.  Once certified, photographers become members of the
 network at no cost and shoot events appropriate for their experience and
 expertise.  PrimeShot Certified Photographers average 10-15 years of
 experience.
     "The key to PrimeShot's success is simple," says President and Co-founder
 David Holder.  "We solve compelling business needs of our photographers and
 customers.  PrimeShot provides excellent photographers like George Martinez
 with a much-needed cost-effective flow of business; while delivering to
 corporations and event planners a previously unavailable, convenient, reliable
 source for professional photography services."
