Class Description


Our weekly audio podcast We Are Photographers brings you true stories from behind the lens and behind the lives of your favorite photographers, filmmakers, and creative industry game-changers. From their struggles to their wins, host Kenna Klosterman discovers the real human stories about why they do what they do.

Listen to this and other audio episodes on our audio Podcast page.


In this episode, Peter shares the history of both his trademarked “squinch” and legendary “sha-bang.” He talks about the importance that goal setting has made on his life and career and how repetition is the key to confidence and mastery. Find out why Peter believes the human face is the most intriguing thing on the planet and the power of an emotional connection between photographer and subject.

I have watched Peter Hurley YouTube videos as I begin my journey as a headshot and portrait photographer. This class, although not technical, gave me insight to what drives and guides him. Mr. Hurley touched on goals, journaling, and Bob Proctor, one of my favorite possibility mentors! I highly recommend adding this video to your Peter Hurley library.
