G headshot really is Peter doesn't hold anything back He reveals all his tricks of the trade from his trademark lighting look to how to create good looking backgrounds on location to positioning tricks you won't hear anywhere else and it's all written in Peter's fun uirky inspiring style that lets you know right from the beginning you can do this and you can do this big These are the techniues that Peter has crafted from years in front of the lens as a model for top brands like Abercrombie Fitch and Guess and years behind the lens giving him an insight few photographers will ever possess and he's willing to share every bit of it―every trick every techniue and every nuance―in this book that will pay for itself at your very next shoot Yes it's that goo As some other reviews indicate Peter has that American oversell style no offence intended But then he is American and he is presenting his style which I chose to learn about so he rightly deserves his space on that front You can get a feel for his presentation style if you put his name in a search engine and if you watch some of his videos on YouTube which are very informativeThere is no doubt he has first class techniue and professional competence I learned a lot from the book once I got past the Bio content at the start When I read this I was really studying studio based headshots and Peter is a master in this field From reading the book I adapted my skills and techniues It is not set out as a training book you pick things up as you read through and I took bullet point notes of things I should carefully consider and rememberThe book influenced my buying decisions when choosing a lighting configuration I can t stretch to the kind of gear he uses but I am also not using the cheapest either so I was really picking up on configuration for this He makes interesting non sexist observations about useful differences in light and shade depending on your subject being male or femaleThe book has also influenced my work style my headshot composition and my post production workPeter rightly emphasizes the importance of people factors specifically connecting engaging with your subject helping them feel relaxed and presenting them with pictures that even they love I may be wrong but I really think this is 50% of the skills reuired for studio portraits the rest being technical camera and lighting knowledgeI am a serious enthusiast with a high end DSLR although I would still have learned from this as a novice using a medium format camera You don t need his high end gear to learn important headshot principals and really make difference to your work Read it digest it consider it and then apply it and scale up down according to what you want to achieve and the size of your budgetI have purchased other books on this subject but I was drawn to read Peter s first My guess is that others will be better written detailed perhaps technical They will certainly teach me other things and give me things to consider and apply to my work After reading these other books I somehow think I will still be very pleased I purchased and read this one
