Episode Summary

Shabang! NY/LA portrait photographer, Peter Hurley dropped some serious knowledge (and a couple new catch phrases) on the audience as he discussed his signature approach to photography with Matt Kloskowski. Memorable quote of the day: Everyone changes in front of a camera. It's your job to change them back."

    Love the GRID. With Peter: even better. Had Scott been there, it would have been a total SHABANG!!!

    Catching up on videos and this was a great one. Gotta get Peter’s DVD! I’d love one if they’re still available.

  6. Very nice show! Jaw line :-)

    I liked the comment “If I made it, anyone can”. Is quite encouraging, if you’re willing to do what it takes!

    Lots of good advice!

    Please!! Giveaways for the non-live viewers!!!! (ok, for this one I’m late, but c’mon!!!) (books, dvds and gear, I’m in :-) ).

    What can you say but “Shabang”!
    The book bundle or Peter’s DVD would be awesome.

  15. I would love to get the DVD, I was planning to attend Peter intensive workshop in NY coming all the way from Israel however my business trip was canceled.

  16. Carl Aylman says:

    Great show with Peter Hurley. I attended a class he did in NYC at B&H and I learned a lot. Would love to get his DVD.

  17. One of the best episodes in my opinion. I’m a big fan of Peter Hurley’s work. He is real, honest, insightful, and has a charisma that makes his teaching entertaining. Unfortunately for the rest of us, that is part of the magic that makes him so successful as a portrait/headshot photographer. Good portrait photography is 90% connecting with the subject and 10% technical. The technical can be learned the rest is a gift and a talent that is more difficult to master if you don’t have it already.

  18. Shaun white says:

    Very Cool show with a lot of amazing advise.
