Anyone who reads Fstoppers knows about Peter Hurley and his successful headshot business. Aside from being a great photographer, Peter is also a respected educator and speaker. We always see him in action in the different videos, and see his working techniques and creative direction, but we never really had the chance to hear the story of how he became the successful photographer he is today. Check out this very interesting video where Peter talks about how he went from being on the Olympic team, to being a headshot photographer.
Filmmaker Albert Ayzenberg recently sat down with Peter and spoke with him about what lead him to photography, his struggles, his fears and motivation. Peter speaks about his Olympic sailing career, and how it lead him to photography later in life. It's very interesting to hear his life story and understand it took years to perfect his craft.
