Estonian Ambassador Lauri Bambus

Ambassador of Estonia Lauri Bambus Rory Lewis Photographer Portrait LondonLauri Bambus has recently arrived in the UK, to take up his position as Ambassador of Estonia to the United Kingdom. The Ambassadors Office needed a portrait to represent the Lauri on the Embassy’s website and in any Diplomatic Literature and Press Releases. Commissioning me for the task I Arranged the portrait sitting at the Estonian Embassy in London. I wanted to capture a portrait as to reflect the responsibility of the diplomatic office. The Ambassador has worked in the foreign service for many years and now taking over his important role in the UK. The portrait had to be a representation of the Ambassadors sincerity and the county in which he represents.

 

It was wonderful to meet Lauri and learn more about Estonia. The Ambassador dressed in colours similar to the flag of his country which was a really nice touch to the portrait. The images really stand out and I hope they serve the Embassy well. As a London Portrait Photographer continually moving from location to location, I have the ability to popup my studio anywhere. Using portable Pro-Foto lighting and Lastolite Popup backdrops.

Commander Audberto Lopez Military Portraits

Military Portrait Photographer Liverpool & LondonOver the past few months, I have been working with several diplomatic missions in London on my Ambassadors Project. Popping my head in and out of various embassies I have gained several commissions. Just this week, I was commissioned by Mexico’s Deputy Military Attaché Commander Audberto Lopez for a Military Portrait Sitting in London. It was wonderful working with the Commander, over the years I have captured a great deal of portraits from British Armed Forces personal of the RAF, Army and Royal Navy. It was a nice change to capture a portrait of a Mexican Naval Officer. Portraits are very important for military personal, to be captured in Uniform looking ones best and in full finery can fill one with pride. Commander Lopez is very happy with his portraits and also purchased a framed prints and enlargements of his images. If you are a member of the Armed Forces seeking a portrait please have a look at my comprehensive service available in London and Liverpool.

CKCHFr5WUAA77vOsmThis week as part of my ongoing project to photograph each new Lord Mayor of Liverpool. Lord Mayor Cllr Tony Concepcion, very graciously posed for my lens at the Liverpool Town Hall this week. Cllr Conception has only just taken up the role of Lord Mayor. A retired Vauxhall Motors worker and senior shop steward, Cllr Concepcion grew up in the city centre and now lives in Knotty Ash, close to the new Alder Hey Hospital.

William Hague Sitting

 (Rory Lewis)

William Hague is a British Conservative politician who was the MP for Richmond from 1989 to 2015. He also served as Leader of the House of Commons from 2014 to 2015 and as Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs from 2010 to 2014. He was the Leader of Conservative Party from 1997 until Iain Duncan Smith took over the position in 2001.

 (Rory Lewis)

Until this point, I had longed for the chance to work with a truly significant British historical character. William Hague’s name is synonymous with modern political discourse, but to meet him in person, you would not think it.

 (Rory Lewis)

He is a very witty man who was reeling jokes off through the entire sitting. I was pleasantly surprised with how well he held himself for the portrait, so well in fact that the finished frame is very reminiscent of a Holbein piece – dignified and full of grace and authority.

 

Images where taken with my medium format Mamiya 645DF, Leaf Credo 40 & 100mm Mamiya Leaf Sekor AF 110mm f/2.8 LS D &  80mm f/2.8 LS D. Thank you to Calumet Photographic for supporting the Photoshoot.

 

Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach Portrait

Rory Lewis London Portrait Photographer Air-Chief-Marshal-Sir-Stuart-CF008970Headshots-SessionSir Stuart Peach is a veteran soldier who has amassed a staggering 38 years of service in the Royal Air Force, earning the rank Air Chief Marshal. Even though I’m a professional photographer, I will forever be a historian in my heart. Over the years, I have managed to hone my skills and discovered how to marry my passion with my profession. So when I am tasked with private portrait sittings for politicians, military figures and others of significant standing, I tend to look back in time towards historical portraiture for inspiration. Drawing on the work of Holbein, Dürer, da Vinci and Gros, as well as portrait photographers such as Karsh, I always hope to produce a frame worthy of documenting. In short, I hope that future historians will one day use my work as a source to discover the personality and soul of each sitter.

 

Air-Chief-Marshal-Sir-Stuart-CF008962Headshots-SessionMy sitting with Sir Stuart was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create the perfect military portrait. Bathed in the illustrious history of Whitehall, we conducted the session in the MOD Building – a perfect location to capture the experience, rank and authority of the subject. Employing direct eye contact with the lens, full military garb and a solemn posture, the frame urges the viewer to look into his eyes, demanding the utmost respect his title dictates. Images where taken with the Mamiya Leaf Credo 40 and 80mm f/2.8 LS D Lens.
