For some actors having their headshot captured can be an extremely nerve-racking experience, after all stills photography is an unnatural concept for actors. After-all actors are used to moving on stage and screen. For others it’s not such an ordeal; whichever it is for you the one thing that helps to get the best photos is time. Yes, Time and LOTS OF IT, this will ensure you are completely relaxed and will photograph at your best.

 

So after we have put the world to rights over a cup of coffee we will have plenty of time to work. I always like to start with a few test shots which we can view on the computer so that any necessary changes can be made. We then get to work in the studio for a time, this gives you a chance to get a feel of how I work and I can find out what works best for you.

 

Clothing and hairstyles can be changed whenever needed. (A Makeup Artist can be provided if Needed). From time to time I will show you photos so you have a clear idea of what is going on. We then take a series of outside shots; by this point, I will have a good idea what is best for you and you will feel even more relaxed.

Actors Headshots Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, London

Throughout the shoot, we will aim to get as many looks as we can, with clothes, different hairstyles, angles and emotions. The session will last around Two Hours and in that time I will take about 500 photos. I will then cut down the 500 to around 200/400 Depending on Your Package.

 

I shoot in colour and convert to black and white you receive both colour and black and white copies of your retouched images. You will receive your contact sheets on-line via your own private website within 24 hours.

 

Once you have chosen your two photos I will retouch and crop them for you. Changes can be made before you receive your final photos. With regards to airbrushing, I feel this is a very important area as too much can spoil a photo. This is why I spend a great deal of time working on your photos and like to include you in this process. To make sure you pick the right photos, which stand out for your Spotlight and Casting Call Pro Profile Pages.

Client Reviews & Feedback


“Very Very Pleased ”

Written on: 08/03/2016 by JDerrington

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: 02/03/2016 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 tweek things to get the final shots I was looking for!

Kes & Matthew Actors Headshots, Rory Lewis Photographer Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds

“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!”

“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.

Actors Headshots Liverpool, Manchester, London, Leeds

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.”

Capturing the perfect headshot requires time, and when you book a session with Rory Lewis you will enjoy a  relaxed service. A professional photographer should also be a skilled director. On the day of your session, Rory will direct you with inventive scenarios to bring out your acting talent. In other words acting to camera, as to show potential agents your energy, your vibe and your ability as an Actor. 

Toby Jones Rory Lewis London Headshots Actress Actors Photographer

Rory’s recent  session with Actor Julian Bleach, star of the Borgias and Doctor Who, illustrates how talent and acting ability can be conveyed. Julian’s appearance is retained, very little air-brushing is applied. This is very important if you wish to present your image to casting directors. The expression is distant yet aloof, it has energy, it draws the eye, this is what your headshot needs to evoke. 

Julian Bleach Rory Lewis London Portrait Photographer

Your headshot is your first point of contact with any agency or casting director. If it doesn’t stand out; if it doesn’t have the energy; the raw talent which demonstrates your craft. Your headshot won’t work for you. Headshots are a very big investment to an actor, sessions are expensive. You need to make your headshot work for you. It represents you and your character your style, your talent and it must reflect all these things. 

Natalie Dormer & Emma Rigby Rory Lewis London Headshots Actress Actors Photographer

Most of Rory’s headshot sessions with Celebrities last 15-20 minutes, this is all the time he is allotted to capture the stars of stage and screen. In this time Rory has to think fast, breaking the ice and directing these talented actors to capture the headshot which will represent them for the next 12 months to – 2 years. Just think about what Rory can do for you in 1 hour, creating a powerful headshot which will enable you to stand out from the crowd.

Look at Rory’s session with Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Patrick’s striking and undeniable acting ability is presented to the lens. Sharp and solemn expressions hold the viewer. If your image doesn’t inspire the viewer, provoke the imagination, it won’t stand out it will be viewed for a split second without consideration. 

 

It is time to think about your headshot photographer, don’t settle for the cheap, shabby, and quick passport-like photo service, which inexperienced photographers may offer. Select the finest Actors Headshot photographer available. 

 

 

Andy Price Actors Headshots Leeds

Leeds based Actor Andy Price booked his Actors Headshots Session at the Central Leeds Studio last week. A stage Actor Andy needed to update his portfolio of headshots. Actors Headshots are very complex to capture; as an Actor you have to be able demonstrate your Acting ability on camera.

 

Not a simple feat as stills photography is an unnatural concept for actors; who are used to moving on stage. However, as a photographer I enable my subjects to move capturing them in motion; allowing them to in essence ACT on camera. Performing soliloquies, assuming characters from hero’s to villains. With over 10 years experience working with the worlds most talented thespians. I have the skills both in direction and lighting to make your actors headshots stand out from the rest.
