WHEN DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER PH AND THE HSC?
I went to a 1-day workshop that Peter was doing in Denver on his way to WPPI, it was whatever year he shaved his head. I took a selfie with Peter and he called me out for holding the phone too high, I loved that he didn't sugarcoat things. I met Tommy Collier that day and we were fast friends. Tommy taught me a lot and let me shoot in his studio. I signed up for a year of Headshot Crew and haven't looked back.
