December 2017 PhD contest is now OVER PEOPLE!

The PhD is now over for December PEOPLE! All images must have been submitted below by midnight Eastern time on 12/31. Winners will be announced on our Tuesday CrewCast. Here's the link: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/mamv8hkr

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. The plan is to hang with me to get a taste of the Peter Hurley philosophy to portraiture and afterwards you'll earn your PhD(Peter Hurley Degree) in photography! Including a badge of honor on Headshot Crew by being labeled as a PhD if you aren't already an associate.

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 with me! One winner will be chosen by me 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 we can get together and hang.

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 and can not be a selfie.

This shot is beautiful! I love your steel blue/gray background. What background is this please, if you don't mind sharing? I'd love to add something like this to my backgrounds.

Hi Christy, Happy New Year ! Sorry i did not see your reaction yet. It is a white background :-) And the light i put on it is something like 3 steps less then the light on Emiels 's face. Than it's grey and PS helps met to get a more precise adjustment. So no investment necessary !
