“Rory, The Art Nude Photography Course was spot on. You kept the theory to a minimal and just taught us practical techniques. I came away from the course with some amazing images and Ella Darling was an awesome model for a beginner like myself Thanks a bunch!”

“Rory  is someone who loves his work as a photographer  very enthusiastic . He is very willing to help and supplies one with information, during and after the shoot with notes of the different lighting setups .

I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wishes to enter the beautiful world of Fine Art Nude photography. There are so many aspects of the course that I enjoyed …this is another thing about Rory , he is a good sense of humour which rubs off on his students , because half the battle of getting something across is to make the whole learning experience enjoyable .

Even after he has finished his course and you are wanting to chat about something , Rory is always available to help . A great asset for any teacher well worth flying over from Ireland! “

Excellent course. this was my first Art Nude course and I’ll be honest I was very Nervous. However, Rory was great he kept me engaged and taught me loads. He knows his profession.

 

Our MUA did a flawless job, she had the model looking amazing and we didn’t have to deal with any issues. The model was amazing, great professional, very hard worker and made me feel at ease. Great gorgeous cheeky look and wonderful figure, would recommend her to anyone

Los Angeles May 2017

Back in Los Angeles, to be specific the beautiful Hollywood Hills. Teaching a One-to-One Portrait Photography Workshop. One-to-One Courses are special. They can be tailored to your needs and requirements. Do you want to spend a day working with professional models in a London Studio working on your portrait photography technique? Or do you want to spend a week on Location in Los Angeles, shooting fashion models? My client in this case chose the latter, throughout the week, I arranged several published and diverse models. Teaching lighting, direction and photographic technique.

I was also able to fit in a few portrait sittings of my own. Caravaggio has been of great inspiration to my recent Portrait Photoshoots. Recreating the animation and religious tones of his work has been a challenge. Thus I invited three actors to help me recreate this style of portraiture. Firstly the remarkable film and stage presence Tony Amendola, who took upon the role of a fallen priest. Ripping the collar from his neck with a wonderful vigorous expression; captured profile, whilst reciting a powerful soliloquy to camera.

Next René Auberjonois, took upon the role. With an instantly recognisable face which I believe becomes better and better with age. Star of stage and screen Auberjonois, has appeared in  M.A.S.H, Star Trek Deep Space Nine and Boston Legal to name but a few titles. René sat for me back in 2015, and with this new sitting in mind. I wanted to add Carravaggio’s animation of expression to the portrait. Auberjonois generated a depiction following my religious inspiration.

Finally Linda Park, I had been meaning to arrange a session with Linda for several months. A Korean actress, Linda is mainly known for her portrayal of communications officer character Hoshi Sato in the television series Star Trek: Enterprise. My visit enabled me to at last arrange a sitting. Linda is exceptionally talented, and the photoshoot enabled me to add a female actress interpretation to my Caravaggio inspired project.

Sittings and Tuition completed, myself and my wife Sasha, where able to spend a few hard earned days relaxing at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. I’m returning to Los Angeles in September 2017 for a series of workshops on Portraiture and Fine Art Nude. I’ll also be holding Headshot and Portrait Sessions. Please don’t hesitistate to get in touch, commissions are welcome.

Vincent Littlehat Test Shoot

I’m always testing/working on my own projects. I regularly check websites like Models.com and Modelmayhem for new talent. Recently I found Model Vincent Littlehat; I had a few hours to kill after a portrait assignment in London and setup a test shoot. Vincent is a wonderful and versatile model with stunning bone structure, she has plenty of ideas and responds well to direction.

 

I wanted the images to resemble a Retro/Instagram style look with harsh lighting, retouching and fierce facial expressions. Makeup Artist Melodie Briere styled Vincent’s makeup and hair for the photoshoot. I took the images with my favourite toy Fuji XPRO1 & XF 35mm F1.4 R Lens.
