Peter Hurley has a haphazard way of moving through life. Whether it's competing around the world while training for the Olympics on a sailboat, having his picture in magazines while modeling for Polo and Abercrombie & Fitch or having over 20,000 faces three feet in front of his lens, it certainly hasn’t been a quiet ride. His prowess behind the camera fueled his desire to educate and he has spoken for Google, Apple, Microsoft and Canon, to name a few. He is known for speaking on tips to improve yourself in front of the camera and his YouTube videos with millions of views as well as his TEDx talk given at MIT on “Bridging the Self Acceptance Gap” are not to be missed. Upon the release of his book, “The Headshot” he was proud to add author to his list of accolades. Peter is the founder of Headshot Crew which is a coaching platform and referral engine for photographers that comprises the largest group of headshot specialists in the world. He also founded HURLEYPRO, a gear company where he works to bring his own products to the photography market alongside his co-branded partner, Westcott. He calls New York City his home where he lives with his beautiful wife and precious twin daughters.
