Tess Clarke Actress Headshots London

Actress Tess Clarke arranged her first portfolio of Headshots at the London Studio last month. A recent Performing Arts graduate it was a pleasure to work with Tess. These headshots will help to illustrate her acting ability to casting directors and take her career forward. On the day of her session I directed Tess to assume different expressions and characters. Creating an exceptional new representation of her talent as an actress.

Katherine McKalip Actors Headshots Los Angeles

Thank you to Katherine McKalip for arranging her Actress Headshots at the Glendale Studio in Los Angeles. After majoring in Music and Drama in college in the ’60s, she later did almost 10 seasons of theatrical acting/training at Western Stage, building up to leads, among them being Frau Gabor in Spring’s Awakening, and M’Lynn in Steel Magnolias. Now in Southern California, she’s doing TV (TLC, Discovery, National Geographic), movies.

 

It was a real pleasure to work with Katherine, an exceptionally talented actress. Throughout the session we worked on Commercial and Theatrical Headshots. I hope to have the chance to see her on stage at some point in the near future. The below is from one of the theatrical sets photographed.

“I enjoyed my shoot with Rory. His wife was very helpful with details while I was getting ready, too. Rory chose a good background for my white hair, and I esp. liked that he would shoot a group then turn the camera round and show them to me & ask for input. I wanted certain moods and he worked at getting that just right.”

It was wonderful to work with Jennifer who very kindly wrote a review of her experience below.

 

Jennifer’s Review

Liverpool & London Actors Headshots“From the moment I read Rory’s website I knew I wanted him to take my Headshots. I loved his background and passion for headshot photography. I contacted him and booked online – it was quick, easy and his correspondence was excellent, friendly and I was excited to attend the photoshoot. I took my sister along and as soon as we arrived we loved the arty environment in the heart of Liverpool. We found parking easy and were kindly shown to Rory’s studio by another chap working for the Retro cinema. Rory had an assistant trainee and this was fab as we could learn some tricks of the trade whilst he took my photos. He showed me the shots all the way through and I loved them. I knew I had the headshot I wanted within the first 5 mins as he is such a wonderful photographer with a great eye and making you feel so relaxed so portraying your true self. He also knows what the industry and Spotlight look for so he directs you throughout the shoot. He is courteous, friendly and fun and made the whole experience perfect.

When I received the final retouched Headshots I was so thrilled they were wonderful. I will certainly use him again in the future and I would highly recommend any actor or individual wanting Headshots or photography to contact Rory. You will be thrilled with the result.”

Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Spotlight Recommended Actors Headshot Photographer

spotlight logo white11When you come to Rory Lewis for your Spotlight photos my aim is to give you a relaxed and comfortable session, this is why I only see a maximum of two clients per day. Upon Spotlight’s recent visit to Liverpool, they posted me as their recommended photographer in the Liverpool Region. For the past 10 years, I have specialised in portraiture, in particular with Actors, and have tailored a package which offers a relaxed session to get the very best selection of Actors Headshots for your Spotlight Page.

 

I will take 200-400 images of you during the session which will include studio and outside locations , afterwards all your images will be uploaded to your own web gallery the same day which you, your agent, family and friends can all access via your own password to view and choose those 3-6 images depending on your package.

Devon Beigan Actress Head Shots“ 

“Very pleased with the results of my Actors Head Shots. Camera quality was excellent and the Photos where of a high standard. Rory was really professional, he made the experience fun and worth while. 

 

As it was my first time I was unsure of what to expect. However, Rory guided me through what he wanted me to do and done so in a polite manner. I was especially pleased by my makeup and hair results and the artist was also professional and very kind.

 

Overall my experience was enjoyable I would highly recommend Rory and his team.” 

Thank you…….

 

I will discuss with you prior to the shoot the selection of tops I need you to bring to the session in order to create four to six different looks via clothing, lighting, change of background, hairstyle, interior & exterior (weather permiting) locations to present to your agent and casting directors.

Don’t believe I can create that many looks then see my many examples of past clients and read their testimonials.

 

The re-touching will be sympathetic to each client without being unrealistic ie spots and skin blemishes, as Spotlight themselves say – the casting director, agent or production company want to see a photo of the “real” you so if you turn up to an audition or casting looking completely different to your photograph you are wasting everyone’s time!

Working With Actors

I am a Portrait Photographer, though I can’t afford to market myself solely as a Portrait Photographer I must shoot a wide variety of work from Models to Product Photography & Interiors.

 

Don’t get me wrong I enjoy being a general photographer every assignment is unique and exciting. However, I am a huge fan of Stage & Film. When I shoot people who aren’t Actors  I don’t enjoy it as much.

 

Actors in my opinion make the best models. Actors take direction effortlessly on camera, when I shoot an actor I try to bring their true character into the picture. I like to take the time to have a conversation getting to know the actor helping them feel at ease.

If i’m shooting an established actor I like to do my research. Some of the famous people I’ve photographed i’ve not know much about. I didn’t know a great deal about Emma Rigby, so before our shoot I watched some clips on Youtube and read some articles.

The Two RonniesAnother exciting opportunity presented to me was a shoot with Matt Littler & Darren Jeffries. Formally from Hollyoakes and Now Presenters for T4. Their Agent approached me to shoot them for a promotional portfolio update. Again I applied some research and looked at similar duo presenters like Ant & Dec and even the Two Ronnies who inspired the shot below. The shot really brings out the quirkiness of the guys.

It was film & stage that inspired me to become a photographer in the first place, and I strive each day as a professional photographer to shoot more & more exciting projects with Film & Stage Actors.

 

Recently Devon Beigan, young actress & recent Star of Casualty, arranged her first ever Headshot Session. It was fun to show the fun and serious side of her personality, shooting a broad variety of expressions to illustrate all aspects of Devon’s Character.

In 2014, I will be holding my 2nd Exhibition and I will be approaching stars of stage & film to pose in several projects to help raise money for UNICEF. Last year’s 2012 Exhibition helped to raise £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support I hope to beat last years total and raise over £1000 for UNICEF. It is an amazing feeling to raise money for a good cause while doing something you enjoy.

 

If you are an Actor or Actress looking for headshots please take a look at my Comprehensive Package. Based in Liverpool and able to shoot in Manchester and Leeds & London.  A Photographer who can create headshots to make you stand out with casting directors.
