This will only cost you more in the long term. Approaching a Model Agency with substandard pictures won’t kick start your career it will only damage your chances of finding work.

A Great model portfolio is your key to getting noticed in the highly competitive world of modelling. Your model portfolio is many times the first contact a potential client or agency has with you. This means that your portfolio images are extremely important to your modelling career.

Start your career on the right foot. Rory Lewis Photographer has over a decade of experience working with model agencies throughout the UK & Europe. Rory has a proven track record and can produce photography that Model Agencies and Casting Directors are looking for.

Recent Reviews (Source Review Centre)

“I went to Rory to start to put together a modelling portfolio. I’ve never done anything like it before and was really nervous, but Rory’s direction really helped build my confidence and help me improve my ‘look’.

The photos that Rory took have come out beautifully, and I’m now happy to start sending them off. I would definitely go back to him to update my portfolio, as well as for any other photograph’s that might need taking.”

Jessica Ball Model

 

This was my first photo shoot and I had found myself to be nervous. Rory had made me feel comfortable and relaxed within a short space of time – as he guided me through the process and was always helpful.

He wasn’t hesitant to answer any of my questions throughout the time I was there and explained everything carefully and with great detail. I found myself learning a lot. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience.

Sir Derek Jacobi Photoshoot

By far one of the most successful British Actors of our time Sir Derek Jacobi, accepted my invitation to pose for a portraiture session, in London last month.

It was wonderful to meet Sir Derek and during the session I had the chance to talk to him about his amazing acting career. I have been a big fan of Sir Derek over the years, and it was a wonderful opportunity to work with such a legend of Stage and Screen.

It was a love of Stage and Screen, that inspired me to become a photographer and the opportunity to work with Sir Derek Jacobi has been one of the most memorable of my career.

Saturday 8th March 2014 Art Nude Photography Course Feedback

Today’s Art Nude Photography Course in Manchester was a wonderful success. The delegates, worked through a programme of lighting, art direction and technique. Working with the Amazing Model Ella Darling. Please read feedback from the Course Delegates Below. I will be holding many more photography courses throughout the year, have a look at my Course Timetable.

Art Nude Photography Course Manchester Rory Lewis Photographer

Art Nude Photography Course Manchester Rory Lewis Photographer

“Rory is a fantastic teacher !! He is very easy to learn from and his course is enjoyable and informative. He loves being asked questions and is extremely knowledgable. The course was 95% practical which is fantastic as that is the best way to learn. Rory also backed up the course with PDF diagrams and presentation on what we had learned. This is proving a great resource to refer back to.

The choice if model was perfect and whole day was run very professionally and set everybody at ease. I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in Art Nude Photography. I took the course to further my knowledge of lighting and direction and wasn’t disappointed. I learned a lot and have new found skills that I’m applying to my photography. The course has left me with a new found passion for my art form and a real motivation to take my interest even further.

I enjoyed this course so much that I am booking to do another course with Rory, this time in an old Lunatic Asylum, I can’t wait !!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND”

Peter Holland

“Can summarise this quite quickly: brilliant!

I don’t get much of a chance to experiment with a studio set up and professional models; this was the perfect opportunity. Both Rory and the model really helped with the instructions, this being what you’d normally expect like lighting, but also on how various positions of the head/eyes etc. can make a huge difference to the outcome of the shot.

But in addition to the actual teaching, it was good fun. Both had a good sense of humour which made the whole experience “a laugh” as well as being very informative. And they were incredibly patient as each of the pupils (including me) made a pig’s ear of one thing and another.

If you’ve ever thought about trying a course like this, do it now, you won’t regret it.”

Fridges/White Goods Product Photography

This week I have just completed an assignment shooting American Style Fridge Freezers & Wine Coolers. It was quite a challenge to shoot the items, being large and cumbersome. However, it was well worth the effort the products look sleek, sexy and shiny, the client is very happy with the images, and i’m looking forward to more appliance photoshoots.

If you are in need of Product Photography, please keep me in mind. No Product is Too Small or Too Big, from Jewellery to Pack Shots & White Goods. I have the use of studio facilities in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow & London, or I can visit your warehouse, shop or workspace with my portable equipment.
