Peter Hurley began his career in front of the camera modeling for the likes of Ralph Lauren and Abercrombie & Fitch. During this time, friend and mentor Bruce Weber encouraged him to pick up a camera and within six months Peter was able to book his first commercial job photographing shoes for Reebok. Due to his experience, technique and engaging personality, Peter has developed a forte of bringing out the best in his subjects.
Peter’s talent has been shared with hundreds of photographers that have taken his workshop, “The Headshot Intensive,” and thousands that have purchased his DVD, “The Art Behind The Headshot.” He was recently featured in the New York Times and was invited by Scott Kelby to speak at the first Google+ Photographer Conference in San Francisco. His time spent shooting in the studio has inspired him to begin designing and developing his own line of photography gear, called HURLEYPRO. Peter is most proud of the portraits he did for the New York exhibition of “The Vilcek Foundation Celebrates LOST” where he traveled to Hawaii to shoot the cast and crew as they wrapped up their final season. Peter currently resides in Manhattan with his wife and twin daughters.
