Taking pictures of someone can be a challenge sometimes, and especially when it comes to face portraits. Who hasn’t felt awkward while having their school picture taken before? And how can the photographer help in making the situation a little better?

Peter Hurley is a well known headshot photographer based in New York and Los Angeles. Just recently, he sat down to give a few tips on how to make better headshots.

When you’re talking about headshots, what really makes a difference in the outcome of the picture is how the subject looks. And I’m not talking about how much you airbrush them in Photoshop; I’m talking about how the person looks themselves. When someone’s face is the subject of the photo, then how they look at the camera matters a lot more. With how well known he is on a professional level, it’s safe to say that Hurley knows his way around making sure he gets that aspect down, and that’s exactly what he focuses on in this video.
