The PPSWF presents:
Head First: Headshots that Stand Out
A Program on Posing and Lighting
March 18, 2014 at 7pm
With photographer parents, it’s ironic that Gary Hughes’ career, post-college, seemed to include every job except photographer. Working as a janitor, a construction work, even a musician, Gary eventually came back to the path for which he was ultimately destined—photographer.
After completing internships with various studios, Gary founded Hughes Fioretti Photography in 2008 with his wife and partner, Julie Fioretti, a marriage choice not lost on those who followed his earlier careers. In 2010, he began teaching, traveling around the country, covering topics from creative capture and sales techniques to growing profits via social media.
Those who knew Gary in his janitorial, construction worker and musical days might be a bit surprised by his accolades, but those who know his work are not. His wedding albums have garnered local and national awards, including first place for portrait and multiple entries in the PPA Loan Collection. From 2010-2013, Gary was recognized annually as one of the top 10 photographers in Central Florida. His PPA credentials include Master Photographer and Photographic Craftsman, and he currently serves as Past President of the Professional Photographers Society of Central Florida, on the Board of the Florida Professional Photographers and also as a PPA councilor. Icing the cake, Gary was featured in the April 2013 issue of Professional Photographer magazine and was a platform speaker at Imaging USA 2014 in Phoenix.
