FEISOL PRO DIRECTORy
Peter Hurley, USA
Peter Hurley began his career in front of the camera – while training for the Olympics in sailing he was spotted and modeled in campaigns for A&F and Polo. Peter later moved behind the camera, and quickly built up a powerful client list. Thanks to his eye, his technique, and an engaging personality that makes people instantly comfortable, he is able to bring the best out of everyone he photographs. Since opening his studios in New York and Los Angeles, he has focused on and specializes in portraiture.
He has worked with dozens of companies including Levi’s, Reebok, DKNY, Johnnie Walker, and shot hundreds of talented actors, models and authors. Peter is most proud of the work he did for the NY exhibition of “The Vilcek Foundation Celebrates LOST,” where he travelled to Hawaii to shoot the cast and crew as they wrapped up their final season.

Bob Barilani, Italy
Born in Tanzania, Bob spent his childhood enjoying the wild nature of East Africa. That is how he started to love nature and wildlife and his constant search for open spaces and freedom. At the age of seven he started taking his first pictures with a Kodak camera. Today, his main focus is on nature, landscape and wildlife while he tries out new ways to let you know how they meet his feelings and emotions. His three Feisol tripods always accompany him on all his travels and are supporting his work greatly.
