Portrait photographer Peter Hurley gave this talk at the recent Google+ Photography Conference in SF. His training on headshots have made quite a splash in the photo world in the past year, and this free hour-long lecture is a great way to glean some tips for your work.

    Peter Hurley is a good photographer, but dude needs to learn when to shut his mouth and get to the god-damn point.

  • David Rychart

    If you can’t learn anything from that, pehaps the problem is yours.

    I have to agree with the other comments. That was less educational than I had hoped. I was thinking about getting his DVD, and now I know I’ll be safe to pass.

    I had never heard of this guy but he seems to know what he’s doing.  Unfortunately, out of the whole hour, there was about 2 minutes of actual information about portraits – the part about making your chin longer.  The rest was mostly “look at me, I shoot famous people who already look great” and “I’m starting a franchise and you should think about it”.

    agree… there were really 2 minutes with useful information there. I will never watch this guys videos again

    Not sure whether stand up comedy or teaching something… well, non of them…. one long hour, with two useful minutes, of a guy selling his staff, dvd’s products, whatever… Seriously, you can really make it better. He tries to speak fast when is useful… thanks for nothing… pffffff……

    This is google, their entire business is based on getting gullible people’s personal information.
