Backstage names Peter Hurley best Headshot Photographer in New York!

I'm fired up PEOPLE! Backstage grants me the best headshot photographer in NYC baby! Thanks to the readers who voted and Backstage for accepting nominations from everyone and then narrowing it down to the finalists. Feels great to be acknowledged by actors in the city that I love. I've been working everyday to produce images that stand out for all of you with what I like to call "Lookabilty." Nice to know that you guys have noticed and the work is paying off.

Here are the results in all the categories: 2014 Backstage Reader's Choice Awards Winners

Photoshelter survey names Peter Hurley as one of the most inspirational photographers!

My buddy, Joe McNally, took the well deserved top spot on this list, but to have photographers in a survey throw my name around is pretty darn cool! I was so excited to be part of this list and am glad that my spiel is resonating with some PEOPLE out there!

Thanks for those that voted and I hope to see many of you over the course of the next year at one of the many events I’ll be attending. WPPI, Photoshop World, Fstoppers Workshop in the Bahamas are going to be a total blast and I’m looking forward to getting over Europe this summer as well.

This fires me up, so let’s turn 2014 into a total SHABANG!

Keep up to date on my coaching site PH2PRO. Thanks again to everyone that voted!

IDA names Peter one of the 10 most famous portrait photographers!

Seeing this post come through over the internet was quite a surprise. For Indian Digital Arts to acknowledge me as part of this crew is a real honor and extremely humbling. I’d like to send a heartfelt thanks to them for considering me as part of this illustrious group of photographers.

I had the privilege of seeing Gregory Heisler yesterday and sat in on his talk at ImagingUSA called “The Evocative Portrait.”, what an incredible body of work. He’s truly inspiring and after the class I wanted to see if he’d seen this post yet, he hadn’t. I brought the post up on my iPhone and slowly went down the list until sure enough I got to his name. I told him hold on that’s only 9, there’s one more under you and there I was! We both got a little chuckle out of it.
