5-Minute Photography

How to Take a Great Portrait of Anyone, Anywhere, at Anytime.


A good professional photographer must be able to think on their feet. No matter where they are, they should be able to quickly figure out how to take a great portrait. Yet, for many photographers, this sort of high-pressure photography is the biggest hurdle they face. The most incredible studio photographers can freeze up when asked to shoot on location, overwhelmed by all the variables they have to figure out while standing in front of an impatient client.


It’s not your fault.


You need a system.


Booray Perry has developed a step-by-step system that removes the stress and worry from shooting on location. You’ll learn:


  • How to assess your location quickly and decide which path to take to get your shot.

  • Step-by-step walkthroughs for each of the 3 paths:

       ○     Natural Light

       ○     Bounce-Flash

       ○     Off-Camera Light

  • Why you have always struggled and how to overcome it!


Booray will conduct a live-shoot and walk you through each step, showing as he goes how each new element changes his image until finally arriving at the finished product.


Weddings, Seniors, Events, Portraits… every type of photographer will benefit from being able to work faster with less stress under the pressure of time and location.


Walk into any situation, any location, at any time of day and quickly follow a path that leads you to a great portrait in 5 minutes!


Booray Perry had it all figured out.


After a 20-year career in radio, he retired from being a “wacky morning man” to move to Florida, get married and start a family. He became a stay-at-home-Dad with a wife that brought home the bacon with a successful real-estate business.


Then, 2007 happened.


In two months they were out-of-business. So, Booray went back to his childhood passion, picked up the camera he had used when he was yearbook photographer in high school and started a photography business. Now he shoots about 100 weddings and events a year and teaches photography and lighting nationwide. Using his ability to talk non-stop for hours, humor and years of experience, Booray is sought after by photographers who struggle with mastering the tools of the trade and understanding the concepts needed to be successful.


Booray Perry is owner/operator of Booray Perry Photography in Tampa, FL. He is a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP), Photography Craftsman, PPA Councilor and Wedding/Event Photographer of the Year Tampa Area Professional Photographers Association 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016. 


He was a Featured Speaker at Imaging USA 2015 and Course Instructor at Imaging USA 2016. At Imaging 2018 he will be a Featured Speaker with his program “5-Minute-Photography” as well as the “International Photographic Competition” panel and host the Grand Imaging Awards and Awards and Degree Ceremony.
