“Excellent photography workshop. We went through 8 different light set ups starting with a single light source and ending up with two light sources with the tightest control of the light. There was a lot to take in and was very happy with the photos I took. The breadth of the material covered was excellent. Very pleased to have attended. Thanks Rory!”

Fine Art Nude Workshops Los Angeles, (CA) & London, (England)

Fine Art Nude Photography Workshops

I’ve always been drawn to fine art nude photography as an opportunity to create art for the sake of art. No clients, no deadlines, no restrictions — just the human form as my canvas. While nude photography can be whatever you want it to be, when I teach workshops I coach my students to focus specifically on the fine art nude with an emphasis on light, shape, form, storytelling, and mood.

When you look at my work, I never want you to see a ‘naked photo’. Instead, I want you to see a creative exploration of photography with the nude form as part of the visual language and creative canvas. When you look at my work, you shouldn’t be looking at ‘body parts’ but instead perhaps the way the light wraps around shape of nude subject. I try to pass these same sensibilities onto the students of my workshops both in my instruction and the inspirational references I direct them to study whether classical paintings, art photographers, or fashion photographers.

 

Current Upcoming Workshops

 

Working with a Professional Art Nude Models with fabulous bone structure, figure and facial expression. Rory Lewis Art Nude Courses are a MUST for all those enthusiastic Art Nude Photographers who want to capture some amazing shots for their portfolios. Tuition is a hands on classroom as you work with the model throughout the day learning new skills and techniques. You will walk away from this course with the skill to develop and improve your photography techniques, learn studio flash lighting, develop your understanding of studio technique and test this using a professional model.” You will be shown the effect of soft boxes, umbrellas, snoots, beauty dishes and how to use reflectors. How to use both soft and hard lighting to change the mood and effect of a portrait. Learn the function of the main light; and how to use fill lights, back lights and hair lights to affect the final image.

Every year I teach fine art nude photography workshops both at my studio in London (England) and in Los Angeles (CA). These portfolio intensive nude workshops are limited to 12 delegates. I have several goals that I want to achieve with my students. First, I aim to educate. I want to help photographers understand how to manipulate the form to create the shapes they desire, and therefore gain a deeper understanding of posing. I want them to see (and experience) how the placement of light and choice of modifier change the appearance of the body, curves and musculature. I want to demonstrate the role of highlight and shadow in both sculpting and differentiating the form, and how his interplay of light and shadow becomes fundamental to fine art nude photography.

 

Next, I am to reduce (or eliminate) fears. At times people are uncomfortable with photographing nudes because of societal taboos that have been imposed. During my workshop I help my students to become comfortable with planning shoots, the etiquette of approaching and directing their subjects and more. It is extremely important for a photographer to be professional and confident with their subjects in order to create the type of imagery that is the goal of my workshops.

 

Finally (and probably just as importantly), I aim to inspire. Nude photography always pushes me to explore my creativity — I explore new lighting techniques, I make a mess with paint, I try more dramatic poses, I create unusual set or place my subjects in unexpected scenes. The nude is my creative canvas, and I often find that the creative explorations I experiment with in nude photography often creep back into my own portrait photography work.

 

Unfortunately for a variety of reasons (many unfounded or based on societies unnecessarily skewed perceptions of the nude form) I cannot share many of my fine art nude work on social media without destroying the integrity of the images by photoshopping out a nipple or adding censorship. Honestly, I think there is a clear different between ‘sexy boob’ and ‘art boob’, but of course that is an entirely different discussion.

Although I do not treat my workshops as shooting time for myself, I often take a few frames of the subjects in order to allow my students see me direct the models and also to allow me to provide a few frames of images to my models as an extra thank you for their hard work!

 

In one workshop we focused a lot on studio lighting for fine art nudes, and how to use the mood of the light to fit the theme of the nude or to tell the greater story. We also used studio lighting to create dramatic images that really focused on the nude form instead of a ‘naked subject’.

“Rory, The Art Nude Photography Course was spot on. You kept the theory to a minimal and just taught us practical techniques. I came away from the course with some amazing images and Ella Darling was an awesome model for a beginner like myself Thanks a bunch!”

Stephen Nicholson Delegate

 

“Rory  is someone who loves his work as a photographer  very enthusiastic . He is very willing to help and supplies one with information, during and after the shoot with notes of the different lighting setups .

I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wishes to enter the beautiful world of Fine Art Nude photography. There are so many aspects of the course that I enjoyed …this is another thing about Rory , he is a good sense of humour which rubs off on his students , because half the battle of getting something across is to make the whole learning experience enjoyable .

Even after he has finished his course and you are wanting to chat about something , Rory is always available to help . A great asset for any teacher well worth flying over from Ireland! “

Aidan Finn Delegate

 

Excellent course. this was my first Art Nude course and I’ll be honest I was very Nervous. However, Rory was great he kept me engaged and taught me loads. He knows his profession.

 

Our MUA did a flawless job, she had the model looking amazing and we didn’t have to deal with any issues. The model was amazing, great professional, very hard worker and made me feel at ease. Great gorgeous cheeky look and wonderful figure, would recommend her to anyone

Los Angeles May 2017

Back in Los Angeles, to be specific the beautiful Hollywood Hills. Teaching a One-to-One Portrait Photography Workshop. One-to-One Courses are special. They can be tailored to your needs and requirements. Do you want to spend a day working with professional models in a London Studio working on your portrait photography technique? Or do you want to spend a week on Location in Los Angeles, shooting fashion models? My client in this case chose the latter, throughout the week, I arranged several published and diverse models. Teaching lighting, direction and photographic technique.

I was also able to fit in a few portrait sittings of my own. Caravaggio has been of great inspiration to my recent Portrait Photoshoots. Recreating the animation and religious tones of his work has been a challenge. Thus I invited three actors to help me recreate this style of portraiture. Firstly the remarkable film and stage presence Tony Amendola, who took upon the role of a fallen priest. Ripping the collar from his neck with a wonderful vigorous expression; captured profile, whilst reciting a powerful soliloquy to camera.

Tony Amendola Los Angeles Portrait Photographer Rory Lewis

Next René Auberjonois, took upon the role. With an instantly recognisable face which I believe becomes better and better with age. Star of stage and screen Auberjonois, has appeared in  M.A.S.H, Star Trek Deep Space Nine and Boston Legal to name but a few titles. René sat for me back in 2015, and with this new sitting in mind. I wanted to add Carravaggio’s animation of expression to the portrait. Auberjonois generated a depiction following my religious inspiration.

Finally Linda Park, I had been meaning to arrange a session with Linda for several months. A Korean actress, Linda is mainly known for her portrayal of communications officer character Hoshi Sato in the television series Star Trek: Enterprise. My visit enabled me to at last arrange a sitting. Linda is exceptionally talented, and the photoshoot enabled me to add a female actress interpretation to my Caravaggio inspired project.

Sittings and Tuition completed, myself and my wife Sasha, where able to spend a few hard earned days relaxing at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. I’m returning to Los Angeles in September 2017 for a series of workshops on Portraiture and Fine Art Nude. I’ll also be holding Headshot and Portrait Sessions.

Testimonials

“In one word “Inspiring” “Rory was open to and encouraged all questions, which were answered in detail. Rory shared his extensive lighting knowledge in addition to how to bring out the character in a portrait subject in a fun. informal, enjoyable manner. Would recommend this course to any portrait photographer wanting to improve their craft.”

“Excellent photography workshop. We went through 8 different light set ups starting with a single light source and ending up with two light sources with the tightest control of the light. There was a lot to take in and was very happy with the photos I took. The breadth of the material covered was excellent. Very pleased to have attended. Thanks Rory!”
