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 in 2007, the housing market collapsed.
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.

In addition to being a featured platform speaker at Imaging USA, he also hosts the Grand Imaging Awards and “Imaging USA LIVE” during the annual photography convention.
He also hosts the webcast, “IPC Live” during the four days of judging the International Print Competition and his podcast, “Photobomb” can be heard on Itunes, Google Play, Buzzsprout and Pocketcasts.
