I’m excited to have Peter Hurley, the king of headshots, on the podcast. In this episode, we talk about what Peter feels was the best investment he ever made in his photography business, staying relevant and reaching your audience on social media, and getting comfortable with who you are as a person to communicate more genuinely with potential clients.
Peter also discusses having the opportunity to be an NFL sideline photographer, finding lost things, and the topic he thinks will dominate the photography landscape in the near future.
Whether you are a portrait or headshot photographer or not, this is an episode you should listen to!
