Bill Brochtrup Actors Headshots LA February 2018 Sessions

Bill Brochtrup,  stage, film, and television actor is immensely talented. Best known for playing “John Irvin,” the cheerful administrative aide on ABC TV’s Emmy Award-winning police drama, NYPD Blue. Along with the rest of the cast, he was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble.

 

Bill arranged an update of his Actors Headshots Portfolio at the Studio in Glendale.  Throughout the session, I directed Bill through multiple looks. From the no nonsense detective to the Father and even the complex villain. I believe headshots should focus on ‘Actors in the Act’. Relaying emotions and feelings to the lens. Thus demonstrating their creative ability. I’m sure with this new collection of headshots Bill will do very well indeed.

James Swanton Review Via Google Reviews

Rory created some miraculously detailed portraits to match a very specific brief. His eye for atmospheric light and shadow – part Rembrandt, part Expressionism – means that his headshots are works of theatre in miniature. Highly recommended.

Results from February 2018 Headshot Sessions


“Very Very Pleased ”

Written on: 08/02/2018 by J Derrington

I have had a few headshot sessions and photoshoots before and I hate having my picture taken. I was put immediately at ease and given slight directions to help change stance and also the thought process for each photo. The pictures themselves are of high quality (even before editing) and in terms of value for money, I would say that for photos of this quality and the quantity of images that you can get afterwards, is phenomenally good value. 

I can’t wait for 2 years down the line when I will need new ones. Thanks!


“A pleasure to work with”

Written on: 02/02/2018 by Joel Quinn Via Reviewcentre.com

I contacted Rory for an Actors Headshot Session and I was not disappointed. Rory was extremely pleasant and welcoming . As for the session itself I couldn’t have felt more comfortable about my shots. He kept me visually updated throughout the shoot with how they were turning out so that we could adjust and tweak things to get the final shots I was looking for!

National Portrait Gallery Portrait Photography Workshop

Last weekend I was delighted to teach my Weekend Portrait Masterclass at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The second time the gallery has invited me to teach, and it is a real treat to use the Collection as inspiration. I had the pleasure of working with 12 delegates throughout the weekend. No stranger to the gallery I’m always popping my head through the door, to gorge upon the feast of art and intrigue. Over the years seven of my portraits have been acquired by the Gallery.

National Portrait Gallery Photography Workshop Rory Lewis

Day one began with a talk about my style of portraiture and how art has provided a great deal of inspiration in the lighting and detail of my own work. Then we moved on to talk about the work of Artists, such as TitianHans Holbein the Younger and Sir Thomas Lawrence. After some refreshment, the delegates toured the gallery, with a talk by myself on some of the most interesting pieces of the collection.

National Portrait Gallery Photography Workshop Rory Lewis

After lunch it was time to learn about lighting techniques using the galleries well equipped photographic studio. The delegates practiced their technique using a light meter to setup basic one and two light Renaissance Chiaroscuro Lighting with our first model. After lighting skills where taught, I demonstrated direction and how to create different emotions and moods. The delegates then took it in turn to capture a varied collection of portraits illustrating different sides of our subjects character.

National Portrait Gallery Photography Workshop Rory Lewis

Day two began with a review of all the delegates portraits from day one. We then recapped on the lighting techniques and skills. The delegates then worked in groups to re-create versions of the renaissance portraits in the gallery.

 

After lunch it was time to work with our Second and Third model, the delegates working in groups visited the gallery to plan a series of portraits using the collection as inspiration. Then taking it in turn to re-create their own versions of portraits with the subjects. Shoots completed, I reviewed all the portraits captured, and gave individual feedback on lighting and direction.

 

The course was a wonderful success, packing in as much as I possibly could over two days, the Delegates walked away with a new appreciation of art and photographic skills. In turn Capturing their own collection of portraiture. It was fascinating to see everyones unique style and approach to the practical photography session.
