What is ph2pro.com?
The PH2 professional photographer community is a serious place for photographers who are either already established or just starting a photography business and want to hone their craft. We are geared mainly towards headshot photography, but Peter considers himself a portrait photographer at heart, so as long as you find humans in front of your camera on occasion you are welcome and and invited to join.
PH2 was started by photographer, Peter Hurley, as a referral service to headshot photographers worldwide in 2007. It has now evolved and PH2pro has not only become an engine for headshot referrals, but also is a coaching platform for the PH2 team of photographers and thriving online community.
On this website, photographers can create a profile and upload their best photos to be viewed by potential clients looking for quality headshots from a reputable source.
Peter and his team are seeking photographers we feel produce the quality of work that our clientele have come to expect from the PH2 brand. Those who create a body of headshot work that get's noticed by Peter and his team have the chance to become a PH2 Associate Photographer upon Peter's approval through our gallery review process.
What exactly is a PH2 Associate Photographer?
PH2 Associate Photographers are Peter Hurley’s hand-picked elite team of headshot photographers. They are his go-to photographers for clients in areas that Peter isn’t able to service globally or on a tighter budget and looking for quality headshots at competitive prices.
We feel strongly about pushing work to the photographers who we can count on to churn out amazing photographs for their clients every time. PH2 Associate Photographers are each running their own photography business their own way, so feel free to add a PH2 component to your current business however you like. If you like you can see general session info that we suggest to photographers to get the gist of how Peter would run a session here.
Anyone can create a free portfolio profile, but only PH2 Associate Photographers are listed in our public directory here on ph2pro.com as well as Peter's own site, peterhurley.com.
How do I become a PH2 Associate Photographer?
First, in order to be considered you need to be enrolled in the Protege Coaching Program.
You need to upload your best work and once you have at least 10 solid headshots in a portfolio simply ask Peter if he can quickly take a look by submitting it for a portfolio review. Peter will look at your work and give you an honest critique of where you are and where you need to be in order to become one of his Associates. He is very picky on this front, so look at the quality of work being done by the current PH2 Associate Photographers to see if you think you can run in this crowd.
Your work really needs to be top-notch to be included as a PH2 Associate. We want to feel that it meets the standards our clientelle have come to expect from the Peter Hurley brand.
We don’t want photographers to get disappointed and give up if they aren't selected to be an associate the first time around. We're happy to take a look at new shots anytime a photographer feels that they’ve made positive changes in their work.
We feel strongly about the Hurley approach to headshots and would like every PH2 photographer to be on the same page, so anyone participating in any of Peter's workshops will be placed at the top of the list for consideration into the PH2 Associate Photographer program.
