  • James Lout

    When I was a teen, I was looking through a drawing section of my local library and happened across a misplaced book, it was a book on black and white photography by Ansel Adams. From that point on I was infatuated by photography. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to pursue it until I joined the Marines and bought my first SLR camera in Hong Kong in 1998, a Canon 888. I think I photographed anything and everything I could and, of course, a lot of black and white. Fast forward to 2011 and I decided to take this hobby of mine to something more so I upgraded to digital and started studying the technical side of photography. I took my first photograph of freezing liquids with flash with that new camera, a Canon 60D, and was hooked and still today liquids is one of my favorite things to shoot when not photographing portraiture.

  • Richard Waine

    Richard Waine was born and raised in Queens, New York at a time when shag carpeting was still in style. After Graduating from Hofstra University he spent the better part of his career in the financial world, working long stressful days on Wall Street. After seeing a YouTube video of Peter Hurley, he dove into headshot photography. In awe of Hurley's energy, knowledge and personality, Richard made the commitment to pursue headshots as his specialty. After meeting Peter and spending time with him at an industry conference, Richard was confident that this was his calling. Peter wasn't so sure. Today, he is proud to be a mentor in Peter Hurley’s Headshot Crew, and is prouder still to call Peter a friend and his mentor.

    "Fun Fact: I tend to wear a hat most of the time. Besides being follically challenged (as much as I hate to admit it, I'm losing my hair), my infatuation with hats began when I was around 8 years old. I needed stitches on the bridge of my nose. The plastic surgeon wanted to ensure that any scarring was as minimal as possible. So, he insisted I wear a hat to keep the sun from my face. I never dropped the habit. Today, my collection of hats is pretty large even though I typically only wear one or two."
