As the child of photographer parents, it is ironic that Gary Hughes's professional life included everything but photography until life led him back to the path for which he was ultimately destined, photographer. In 2008, he and his wife founded Hughes Fioretti Photography, and, in the years since, have grown their business by making a name for themselves as THE place to get headshots in Central Florida. Aside from running a studio in Orlando, FL, Gary, M.Photog.Cr, CPP, is also in demand as a photography educator and travels often, teaching his methods to photographers all over the world. His main focus as an instructor is to empower photographers to create the type of business that sets them free to live the kind of life they want.  

Gary's articles and work have been featured in Professional Photographer, Shutter Magazine, The Huffington Post, SLR Lounge, and more.


Portrait and wedding photographers, even really successful ones, often have the same problem: slow season. What if you could build another source of income that could increase your revenue and keep your studio busy, even during your normally slow times of the year? What if you could take advantage of the high demand for simple headshots without hurting your boutique studio brand? In this program, learn some of the critical first steps you can take to grow a headshots brand and increase your bottom line.
