From Zero to Shabang

October 1, 2022 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm


From Zero to Shabang with Peter Hurley – Brough to you by FJ Westcott & Competitive Cameras

About this event

Every portrait photographer knows the feeling – the scene is set, the lighting is perfect – and the moment you look through your viewfinder your subject looks like the life just got sucked right out of them. Humans beings tend to behave in strange and usual ways when placed in front of the camera and our job as portrait photographers becomes not only to technically capture a quality image, but to coach our subjects toward what Peter considers that elusive SHABANG’in shot!

No one is better at this than Peter Hurley – in fact, he is the master at engaging clients, creating an atmosphere that pulls out their personality and infuses it directly into the image, his constant goal is to take someone with a bland look on their face, and turning it into something captivating.

In this lecture, Peter will discuss his Hurley Headshot System and signature moves for getting a subject to come alive in front of the camera. Learn how to move your subject toward that moment that Peter likes to call a SHABANG!; the instant when adrenalin, emotion and drama all come together allowing you to capture an image that will make the artist inside you stop and say, “wow!”

Join Peter Hurely, FJ Westcott & Competitive Cameras for an unforgettable evening of tips, tricks and emotion to bring the Shabang out in in your own work.
