This week’s podcast features two diverse subjects who both have interesting perspectives on the photo industry. First up Rich Harrington catches up with portrait photographer Peter Hurley who’s well-known for his approach to head shots. Melissa Niu then speaks with Ed Greenberg about the rights of photographers.
It turns out that both our guests will be speaking at Photoshop World in April. Be sure to catch them both (and save on registration with the code PSWFOCUS414).
Here is the new podcast feed:
Peter Hurley is a New York photographer who found his way behind a camera after starting his career in front of one as a model and actor. He first picked up a camera to photograph his work making the US Sailing Team for the Olympics. This lead to a mentorship with photographer Bruce Weber who encouraged him. He’s since gone on to shoot advertisements for Levi’s, Reebok, DKNY, Johnnie Walker and Axe Deodorant to name a few.
