Peter Hurley: The Art Behind The Headshot DVD Pre-Order Begins Now

Update: The DVD is now Available for purchase here.
A few months ago Patrick and I flew up to NYC and filmed our first ever full length DVD (dual DVD actually) with Peter Hurley. The DVD is still being edited but we can finally see an end in sight.

Initially we didn't plan on having a pre-order but when Peter Hurley decided to start teaching workshops, we decided to create a special pre-order deal. When the dual DVD is released, it will cost $300. If you purchase it before October 1st, 2011, we will give you a $300 credit towards any of Peter's workshops (and this can be used at any time) so you are actually getting the DVD for free. Peter is also going to personally sign all of the pre-ordered DVDs. Patrick and I are working as fast as we can to edit this DVD while managing Fstoppers.com and also shooting a wedding every weekend. Things are busy but we hope to have this DVD released sometime this summer. Head over to Hurley's website to sign up for "The Headshot Intensive," his new 2 day workshop. There are currently 4 slots left for his first workshop on May 21-22.

how about their foreheads

 This video was hilarious, but personally I think $300 is a little much for a dvd. 

I don't live in new york or la (pretty far from both).  So unfortunately I probably wouldn't even be able to make use of the workshops if I wanted to :(.

Maybe consider selling it for a bit less if you have enough orders? :D

I really like his personality. Seems like a nice, relaxed, down to earth guy.

Its great to have a headshot-specific video. And seeing his previous videos it will certainly be worth the price.

How much will that workshop credit last? 2 years are ok?

at this point we are not putting any sort of expiration date on your credit. If you have the page that proves you preorded, Peter Hurley will give you that in a discount for any of his workshops at any time.

I want the dvd and i'd like to go to the workshop! Now all I have to do is find me a sponsor :p

I guess you guys don't seem to find this as funny as we did (as seeing from the star ratings). Lighten up people!

I guess it's one of those "you had to be there" moments. I got a laugh out of it but as an advertisement for a $300 DVD and a $1500 2-day class it doesn't do it for me. (Not to knock the price of either - one-on-one follow-on mentorship with Peter Hurley after the workshop is an awesome value added deal)

Ya, this isn't the "real" promo for either the DVD (we will release that once it actually launches), this was just supposed to be a funny insight into the character of Peter. I think everyone was expecting a DVD promo and got an outtake video and perhaps that was a bad call on our part for combining the two.

LOL yeah what William said. I like Peter though. This dude seems mad cool. $300 dvd? Better have Sean Armeta doing retouching tutorials on it too. And if its talking about, "You look so hot and yeah that's a sexy face", you wont be selling this to schools or women with power issues.

Trust me, we know the price is high but we can justify it. I assumed this DVD was going to be all about headshots and after shooting for 3 days I was shocked at everything I had learned about photography in general. This DVD set is going to have way more than anyone currently thinks and we will do our best to prove it when we launch the real promo video.

I'lll save the outtakes for the end of the DVD :)

Training is important, people spend way too much money on their gear instead of training. I think if someone who wants to shoot Headshot is better to spend 300$ instead of 1800$ for a 24-70mm f/2.8 because a lot can be done with just a simple 50mm f1/8.... I think this video is great but maybe you're right, maybe it should have talked about what's in the video but hey you can post several video here so who cares? Not a bad call at all. but I think a video or a post about what you can find on that DVD is important.

quite true. I just didn't want to start talking about all the nitty gritty stuff that is going to be in the DVD before we totally finished editing it. Those details will be released soon!

I want this dvd to show me how to get enough money to own a Hasselbad and not lease it for $400 a month. Im sure once you reach Hasselblad money your attitude towards photography changes. I be you walk around like, "Heo yeah I'm walking around with a $20,000 camera, even IF I suck, you won't think so because I walk with my chin up. "

People will be like, "why did you bring a camcorder", and you can be like, "this camera has 60 mega pixels and can see into the future of this shoot and trust me it will be awesome."

People say the camera doesn't make the photographer, well true but I bet it's a huge confidence booster knowing your are holding a car in your hands and the kit lens cost more than other peoples whole camera system.

Haha I think we should have named this DVD "my camera can see into the future"
