Rory knew his stuff. He answered all of my questions and everyone else’s. I enjoyed his early references, “Maria” from “Metropolis” through the styles. A Big Thank you very much for the course today in Belfast. I hope you made it home to Liverpool safe. Liverpool -the Capital of Ireland. I found you way knowledgeable as I Knew Maria from Langs 1927 Metropolis and also knew Rembrandt lighting. So thanks for keeping it interesting.
I will enjoy looking up more of your work at a later date and would love to be at your exhibition. yes I would not go back to work if I won lottery. While there are great exhibitions too see, I would never be bored. The Nude I took many years ago, nearly 20 years ago, was on Fujichrome, 2×500 lights above water and one light below water, an interesting 3 light set up. It can be viewed at www.wix.com/aarondoherty/photography.
Thanks again Rory
“I attended One to One Portrait Session in order start a portrait project of photographing a community within a studio. Rory’s new studio in Central Liverpool is easily accessible from Lime Street Station. He initially introduced the essential but simple basic concepts of F stops, shutter speeds, ISO and power sources needed for the photos over a cup of coffee.
These concepts were then explored in a photoshoot session with the aid of a model.The effects of differing light positions, reflection materials and f stops were demonstrated.
Throughout the period additional tips were given and all questions were answered – so make a list of all of those questions you wanted to ask before coming!
Following the session I received Slide handouts (pdf) on basic principles and studio portraiture techniques.He has offered to help in the future to answer any other queries The morning has inspired me to continue with a studio portrait project and was well worth the cost.”
“When looking for photographers who do ‘Actors’ Headshots‘ for CVs, I needed one that was good, but also local in my home city, Liverpool. This is where Rory was discovered who was offering a professional photoshoot at quite a decent price.
When you meet him personally, he is such a nice guy and really easy to work with. He constantly makes sure that he gets every angle of the person spot on. The result is just as amazing though. When he takes a few days to retouch the photos to make them look good, it’s well worth the wait in the end. Many thanks to you Rory and I wish you all the best in the future!!!”
“I Booked a Actors Headshots Session with Rory Lewis Photographer in January 2014 . It was a wonderful experience. Rory’s Photography Studio was very relaxed compared to other Studios I have been too. Rory Is really good at giving direction & made me feel very comfortable.”

“Recently booked 2 x 30min 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!”

“Only the second time I have had my photos done professionally and it was definitely the best experience I have had.
Rory is very friendly and instantly a relaxing presence; we chatted the whole time. He obviously knows what he is doing and he kept the session light while maintaining professionalism and craft with his shots. Would go back without doubt.”

“Rory was a very approachable, friendly and professional photographer that immediately put my nerves at rest.
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.”
