Military Portrait Sittings

Christmas is on the horizon and I’ve received several calls and emails from Armed Forces Personnel and their families, asking if I offer Military Portrait Sittings. The answer is of course yes. Ever since my Soldiery British Army Portraits Exhibition. I’ve worked with members of the British Army for over two years capturing portraits for a Nationwide Exhibition. My unique style of portraiture is highly sought after by members of all three services, The Royal Navy, Royal Airforce and the British Army and I’m offering a wonderful Portrait Photoshoot Gift Voucher. Available in at my studio in Central London and across studios the UK in Leeds, Liverpool and Edinburgh.

Based in London Rory Lewis is the UK’s foremost Military Portraitist Photographer, who is regularly commissioned to photograph high profile Military Officers for all three branches of the Military Army, RAF & Royal Navy. Portraits are very important to military personal, to be captured in Uniform looking ones best and in full finery can fill one with pride for the service. Rory Lewis Photographer offers a comprehensive service to Members of the Armed Forces, RAF, Royal Navy and Army who are looking to capture a professional portrait. Available at studios in Central London, Edinburgh and in Central Liverpool.

There are currently nine regular cavalry regiments of the British Army, of these two serve as armoured regiments, three as armoured cavalry regiments, three as light cavalry and one as a mounted ceremonial regiment. Soldiery has given me the opportunity to work with seven of these nine Regiments.

Portraiture is Rory’s speciality, he is just as comfortable working with High Ranking Officers as I am with NCO’s and Enlisted Personnel, and you will find my friendly and professional approach helps put even the most photo-phobic at ease.

Portrait Masterclass Workshops Return 2018 New Format

Portraiture is my niche for over 14 years I have laboured to become one of the world’s foremost Portraitists. Throughout my career I’ve captured portraits that have been acquired by The National Portrait Gallery. Photographed many household names, such as Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Rufus Sewell and many more. My work has been exhibited World Wide, commissioned by editorials such as The Times, The Guardian and Independent newspapers. I’ve worked for Corporate and Government clients such as The Ministry of Defence, BBC, and Pepsi and continue to develop my style of portraiture more and more.

Rory Lewis Photographer Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Brian Cox CBE

Over the course of my career I taught my photographic technique, thoughts, ideas, inspirations and knowledge in the form of a Portrait Masterclass. In 2018 I’ll be bringing the Masterclass back to Los Angeles, London, Manchester and Edinburgh and for the first time hold workshops in New York and Boston.

Rory Lewis Session with Sir Patrick Stewart

The format of the Workshop will change, enabling attendees to work throughout the session with THREE DIVERSE SUBJECTS all with different characteristics. Delegates will hone their lighting and directional technique with mini projects and inventive scenarios. Group sizes will be smaller enabling more one to one instruction time with myself.

“The Master Class was not only practical and entertaining, but Rory was generous with his huge knowledge and insight built up from his study of the Great Masters in painting and their techniques for lighting and mood translated into very practical steps gained through shooting world leaders in industry, government and the arts and entrainment. All wrapped and packed into hands-on experience to facilitate the learning with and emphasis on minimum of equipment and the maximum of thought and direction.”

“I attended Rory’s Low Key Portraits course in London and was very impressed with the day. I’m delighted with the knowledge and skills I came away with.”

“To start the day, Rory gave a brief historical introduction to artists’ painting styles, how they translated to photography, and what we had to do to get great portraits.”

London Portrait Masterclass Rory Lewis Photography School Tuition

“Our model arrived, and the rest of the day consisted of setting up many different lighting styles using a variety of modifiers, reflectors and backgrounds. We were shown how to meter the lights and direct the shoot.”

“The portraits I came away with were easily the best studio shots I’ve ever taken, and I’ll definitely be using these techniques for my portraits from now on.”

“Rory was interesting, knowledgeable and friendly – and we were lucky to have a model who was relaxed and helpful as well as looking fantastic in our photos.”

Portrait Photography Workshop Manchester 8th August 2015

Manchester Photography Workshop

“Attended Rory’s Intermediate Portrait course at Calumet Manchester Aug 2015. Rory started the day with a brief review of how portraiture has developed through painters (think Holbein, Henry VIII and power) through to David Bailey. Provided you can handle a camera don’t be put off by ‘intermediate’. Everything else is explained fully (flash setup, including measuring with light meter, and positioning). Various one and two light setups are tried with opportunities to take images with each one. If you don’t come away with some good images for your portfolio and a good understanding of taking portraits then you have failed to ask questions, because the event is informal and people are encouraged to participate.”

Intermediate Portrait Photography Workshop Edinburgh 12th August 2015

London  Photography Workshop

“Portraiture and Studio Lighting – the mysteries revealed”

“I can thoroughly recommend Rory’s intermediate portraiture course. I attended the course in August 2015 and found it extremely educational. As well as looking at the history, and artistic aspects of portraiture we were given a thorough grounding in studio lighting techniques which was invaluable. The importance of directing the model was emphasised throughout and we had numerous opportunities to practice this particular aspect. My only regret is that I now feel the need to go out and buy myself a studio lighting set-up!”

Source Reviewcentre.com

 

“A good explanation of portraiture and lighting”

Attended August 2015. Although billed as intermediate it is not difficult to keep pace with Rory’s excellent explanation of portraiture, provided you know how to handle your camera. Rory starts with basic lighting setups, progressing to two light combinations with a variety of backgrounds and creating a spectrum of moods. The atmosphere is informal, there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions and Rory’s initial review of portraiture through the ages (e.g. Holbein’s flattery of Henry VIII) sets the scene for a very worthwhile day. If you don’t come away with some images that you want to keep, and more confidence in your own ability to photograph portraits then you must be reluctant to ask questions.

“Portraiture Beginners Workshop”

IMG_0405“This was a thoroughly informative and enjoyable session. Rory initially put everyone at their ease doing introductions for himself, the participants and the model. The venue was good for the studio environment required with all the necessary equipment and accessories which were explained to the participants over the course of the session. Rory gave a theoretical overview of portraiture outlining the different types which are used by photographers before leading in to the practical side of the session. Over the course of the day Rory set up different lighting set ups and encouraged the participants to try out the types of portraiture which he had explained. The really informal way Rory conducted the session helped people to feel comfortable enough to engage with the model and give the correct directional instructions to get good poses. This was an excellent sessions which I would have no hesitation in recommending to others. Communication before and after the session has been excellent. Thanks also to Calumet for organising this.”
