As the child of photographer parents, it is ironic that Gary's professional life included everything but photographer until life led him back to the path 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 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 work has been featured in Professional Photographer Magazine and he has been a speaker for Imaging USA, Creative Live and has written articles on photography for the Huffington Post. His book, Photographing Headshots, will be published by Amherst Media in the fall of 2016.
