Erica Kemp Lord Mayor of Liverpool

Rory Lewis Presenting Lord Mayor with PortraitIt was wonderful last month to meet and photograph the New Lord Mayor of Liverpool Councillor Erica Kemp. Over the past few months I have been fascinated by the use of hands in my portraits, and I asked the Mayor if she could clasp her hands in the image. The position reminds me of the 16th Century portrait artist Holbein; who has inspired a great deal of my Political Portraiture. In the second image I wanted to bring out the Mayor’s own personality with a nice smiling pose. If you are in need of a portrait for Business or Corporate use please checkout my Corporate Headshots Packages.
