What started off as a mere hobby for Karl Ferguson Jr. has certainly developed into a mainstay over the past ten years. In fact, even the notion of being behind the lens was previously inconceivable for this New York City raised photographer. With roots mostly associated with wearing multiple hats in the music industry, the decision to pick up the camera came purely out of necessity.

“At the time many of the artists and DJs that I had been working with were constantly running into photography needs. They wanted professional photos for a host of different reasons, but would almost never seemed to have anyone around to shoot. So one day I decided to pickup a camera and give it a try. From that moment on, I was hooked.”

And the rest, as they say, is history. Since then Karl has gone on to have his services contracted by numerous companies ranging from Rolling Stone, Billboard, and Essence to Gillette (Proctor & Gamble), Stoli Vodka and Wild Turkey to name a few. “It’s a blessing to be able to pursue what I love everyday.

Peter Hurley

Peter Hurley has been recognized numerous times year after year by Backstage Magazine as “the best headshot photographer in New York City.” He’s known for his signature style of simple clean backgrounds, beautiful lighting, and captivating expressions.

His YouTube videos “It’s All About the Jaw” and “It’s All About the Squinch” went viral, leading to appearances on Good Morning America and Good Day NY. The New York Times featured his ideas in “6 Tips for Better Portraits” and “How to Pose for a Photograph.”  Popular Photography dubbed Peter “The Headshot King.” Peter is an expert on human facial expression, which has led him the opportunity to share his knowledge to thousands in talks for Google, Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, GoDaddy, Allergan, and Canon to name a few – but he’s most proud of the TEDx talk he gave at MIT called “Bridging the Self-Acceptance Gap” with Dr. Anna Rowley.

Riding on this wave of growth, he wrote his first book, The Headshot, which shot to a #1 bestseller in photography on Amazon upon its release and founded Headshot Crew, which is now the largest network of headshot specialists with over 15,000 members worldwide. In the end, Peter believes that everything he’s worked to accomplish thus far in his career stems from this one thing:

“The time I’ve spent looking through my viewfinder at the beauty of each human face that I find there.”
