    Unsure how many photography books (or books period) the positive reviewers have read, but if you found this to be a great book, then you really need to expand your horizons. This book only has a very brief and vague section on studio lighting and the set up he recommends is a very expensive continuous studio lighting system that is not practical or affordable for most people anyway. Almost no info on flash, which he mostly just us

The rest is marketing his own stuff trying to create a selling point into buying his gear (which is now defunct, but is sold through Adorama under a

    I would like to thank Peter Hurley for sharing his secrets with the rest of us he lays it all out in this book, which goes into greater detail than his YouTube videos, which I also highly recommend watching if you want to try Mr. Hurley's technique. I didn't know the first thing about photographing headshots before I got this book, except th

    This is my second purchase of this book as I have my own, and just purchased another as a gift. Peter Hurley has a bit of a cocky tone if you can get past it, this is a good resource for producing his type of headshot. I refer to it every now and then as I only occasionally do headshots, but have had happy clients as a result. A friend of mine actually took a workshop with Peter Hurley in NY and has a successful business based

    Interesting book great content from a guy who knows the field. He is the most infamous and famous headshot photographer in existence so if you are in the field you should get it. I am also a headshot photographer I shoot 500 700 people a year so for me this book was a curiosity and I think he did well putting it together. He does not approach a great deal of studio lighting concepts but he does discuss the field and his approach to humans

    I've always been a dance and fitness photographer, but when a theater student boyfriend of one of my dancers asked me to do headshots I knew I couldn't turn down the chance to expand out my repertoire. But headshots?!? So I researched and found that I really liked Peter Hurley's style and picked up his book. I read that thing through the two days I had before the shoot. And it was perfect for what I needed. I didn't have all th

    Who doesn't like Peter Hurley.. His bigger than life persona is something every photographer admires (trust me they do..)

    I like the matter of fact way that he communicates. I've looked up his pricing and I'm appalled at how much people want to pay me vs paying him.. GEEESHHH.. Peter Hurley does very well for hims

    Thank you, Peter Hurley and Scott Kelby, for this well thought out, highly informative (and at times) funny book on just one subject: 'THE HEAD

    Don't expect technical data or studio layout's. This is a methodology of Peter Hurley's techniques. He goes over his background in the industry. Then gives guidance and tips for working with clients. He's style of writing is just how he speaks in life ( see you tube tutorials to get his approach). He's fun and full on. Personally I've learnt quite a few good tips from this book I now put in practice. Glad I bou

    This is a pretty woeful book on portrait photography! There's plenty of nice photos of good looking people but precious little in the way of technique, instruction or insight into the genre. The author seems a little self obsessed ab
