Los Angeles September 2017

Back in Los Angeles for a week of photography tuition and shooting, for the first time I was able to offer my Discounted Actors HeadshotsWorking over the two full day sessions on 14th & 15th September with 27 diverse and immensely talented Actors. Several were very kind enough to leave me reviews and feedback on their experience in front of my lens. I’m looking forward to returning to Los Angeles for one more Discounted Actors Headshot Session on Friday 27th October 2017. If you can’t make this session and would like a more comprehensive session, I now offer my Full Headshot Packages in Los Angeles throughout the year.

“Amazing job. Keeps the artist in motion so you stay loose. Highly recommended.”

Rory Lewis is a gem to work with! Both highly professional and easy going, he made me feel comfortable even in the short time I had booked. “He utilizes soft lighting, constant motion, and highlights your prominent/individual features. The result is incredibly unique portraits that showcase exactly who you are, not a generic headshot that could be anyone. I’m extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to work with Rory and recommend him highly!”

Headshots Sessions completed it was time to turn my attention to teaching with a Portrait Photography Masterclass on Saturday 16th September. Throughout the day students worked with three different subjects, who modelled throughout the day. Learning lighting, camera technique and direction. I will also be returning to LA with several workshops in October, from Portraiture, to Fine Art Nude.

 

Making use of all my time in LA I was able to fit in a few portrait sittings. The first with Actor Bo Foxworth and Actress Elyse Mirto, capturing a dual portrait for their upcoming theatre production. The siting was very interesting indeed as both Bo and Elyse played around with different characters both serious and comical.

The second sitting with veteran actor Greg Itzin. Itzin has appeared in guest starring roles on various television shows like in “MacGyver”. His most recent major role has been President Charles Logan on the popular television drama 24. He received a Tony Award nomination for his role in the Pulitzer Prize–winning play The Kentucky Cycle. Greg has a stunning facial profile, an actor of incredible skill and talent, Itzin needed very little direction. My idea to capture Greg as the contemptuous villain.

The third and final sitting gave me the opportunity to add to my Caravaggisti Project. In these portraits I have attempted to emulate Caravaggio’s naturalism and dramatic lighting with photographic effect. The subject actor Adrian LaTourelle. Using harsh lighting to create super detail in skin tone, texture and colour and inventive art direction. Adrain screamed in rage, enabling me to capture the energy of the moment.

Weston Meredith LA Actors Headshots

Actor Weston Meredith, booked his actor’s headshots session at the Los Angeles Photography Studio in Burbank. Weston aimed to increase his casting profile through a new portfolio of headshots.

 

Throughout the session, I directed Weston through multiple looks. From the High School Jock to the Young Father and even the Detetective. 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 Weston will do very well indeed.

 

Such a pleasure working with Rory! He provides an upbeat comfortable shoot and the quality of his shots are always top notch. Would highly highly recommend working with him if you have the opportunity. Very grateful!

“Very Very Pleased ”

Written on: 08/03/2017 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!

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!

Jae’s Actors Headshots Leeds

Recent graduate Jae, arranged his first Actors Headshots session at the Leeds Studio last week. Opting for Package Two. Jay was able to relax and work with me for 2 hours to create his first portfolio of Actors Headshots. Jae was also gracious to leave me a review of his session below.

Review Centre Review 10/08/2017

“This was the first time I had my headshots done and Rory helped me get through them extremely comfortably. Directing me to get better results out of my headshots with each photo he took. Every step of the way he gave me extremely useful hints and tips in order to help me along and explained in great details what the industry is looking for in the headshots, along with giving me other useful tips on the industry. Both before and after the shoot Rory was excellent at keeping in touch in order to keep me up to date in a professional manner. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a professional photographer.”

Alex & Rachel Child Actors Headshots

You child is unique and that needs to be captured in their casting shots. However, importantly, these aren’t family photo album snaps, but professional images perfectly directed and honed to promote, to make your child stand out from the crowd and be invited for audition. They are your ticket to get through the door. A good headshot will, at its most basic, demonstrate your investment in, and your understanding of, your child’s career, and an understanding that first impressions count.

 

Last week Sisters Alex & Rachel  visited the Liverpool Studio for their Casting Headshots Session. Opting for package two and makeup artist, they where able to enjoy a relaxed headshots session.

 

I use gentle direction to ensure we get the shots that are needed without your child even knowing they are working. I focus on the attention to detail so that you don’t have to. We will start with a few test shots which we can review on the computer so we can make adjustments as we go. We work in the studio for a time, effectively ‘playing around’ as far as the child is concerned, whilst I ensure the important boxes are ticked such as ensuring lighting reflects film and TV expectations.

“Recently booked 2 Actor Head Shot sessions for my son and daughter with Rory in Liverpool, location was based not far from the Birkenhead Tunnel entrance, very easy to find with plenty of (pay and display) parking around.

The sessions were very relaxed, and Rory’s direction of each shot really helped get the most out of the sessions.

Rory’s communication after the sessions was absolutely exemplary, everything was delivered exactly on time and of the highest standards.

I would highly recommend using Rory should anyone require his expertise again!”

Sometimes an actor can have so many images he/she wants to achieve and it can become so stressful that it can impact on the photographs. Rory was excellent at getting the “look” just right and helping me get the most out of my ability.

I would highly recommend him.”
