August 2017 PhD contest is now LIVE PEOPLE! Get a color shot in here by midnight Eastern on 8/31!

Congrats to Greg Thomason who won the July PhD and to Karin Richard for picking up the randomizer win!

Here we go for August now PEOPLE! All images must be submitted below by midnight Eastern time on 8/31. Winners will be announced on one of our CrewCasts in the beginning of September.

The winner of the PhD in photography contest each month gets to spend 2 days of their choice hangin & shabang'in with me in the NY studio or any other venue where I'll be for a few days. You'll be immersed full bore into the Peter Hurley philosophy of portraiture and afterwards you'll earn your PhD(Peter Hurley Direction) in photography! Including a badge of honor on Headshot Crew by being labeled as a PhD.

Winners also receive a free year on Headshot Crew and my Art Behind The Headshot and Illuminating The Face tutorials from Fstoppers along with a personalized signed copy of my book "The Headshot!" They will also get in front of my camera and get their headshot taken by yours truly.

Enter below by submitting the best headshot you've ever taken and your chance at a killer time Shabang'in NYC style with me! One winner will be chosen each month and one other random prize winner will be chosen using our randomizer and they will get their choice of either of my tutorials(The Art Behind The Headshot or Illuminating The face), so don't look at the competition and shy away from this. The critique of all the work submitted is valuable for the entire group and each one of you have a chance to win something!

Once you are chosen you have a year to figure out a time period when you can get your butt to NYC and hang with me in the NY studio or find me on the road somewhere and hang with me.

In order to be considered you must be a member of the Headshot Crew Protégé coaching group, so get your butt in here and submit a killer shot for this sucker. Here's the link to register: https://headshotcrew.com/user/register

Only 1 submission per person per month. Enter every month with a new submission of your choice. Once an image has been submitted it can't be used in a subsequent month. All images must be submitted in color.
