Peter's based in New York City, and has been doing headshots for actors and business people for over a decade. A few years ago, he started teaching his stuff to other photographers in a DVD called The Art behind the Headshot, produced by Fstoppers.com.
Here's the preview for the DVD:
I've been following Peter for a couple of years online. His way of working with people to get expressions out of them is amazing. At the Fstoppers Workshops at the Bahamas 2014, I met Peter for the first time, and he's truly a great guy. We had dinner the first night at the Atlantis, along with the Fstoppers guys and several students who arrived early. On the "day off" from classes, Peter took a bunch of us out sailing with two America's Cup class sailing boats. Great fun!
After the workshops, I visited Peter's studio on Manhattan as well, and picked up a couple of his Proboard backgrounds at B&H Photo.
Unfortunately, his workshops were booked so fast that I wasn't able to attend at the Bahamas. Luckily, he told me he's doing a European tour in July and that he'll start it with a headshot intensive in Stockholm, Sweden. Finally!
So, next weekend, I'll be joining his headshot intensive. Apart from meeting Peter again, I will also meet a friend from the Fstoppers workshop at the Bahamas, that I recently attended.
Really looking forward to two days of intensive headshot work. As far as I can understand, the first day will be the theory behind Peter's method. The second day will be all shooting. And if I know Peter right, it will be intense!
