Iain Glen Actors Headshots Photographer Rory Lewis

Capturing the perfect headshot requires time, and when you book a session with Rory Lewis you will enjoy a  relaxed service. A professional photographer should also be a skilled director. On the day of your session, Rory will direct you with inventive scenarios to bring out your acting talent. In other words acting to camera, as to show potential agents your energy, your vibe and your ability as an Actor. 

Toby Jones Rory Lewis London Headshots Actress Actors Photographer

Rory’s recent  session with Actor Julian Bleach, star of the Borgias and Doctor Who, illustrates how talent and acting ability can be conveyed. Julian’s appearance is retained, very little air-brushing is applied. This is very important if you wish to present your image to casting directors. The expression is distant yet aloof, it has energy, it draws the eye, this is what your headshot needs to evoke. 

Julian Bleach Rory Lewis London Portrait Photographer

Your headshot is your first point of contact with any agency or casting director. If it doesn’t stand out; if it doesn’t have the energy; the raw talent which demonstrates your craft. Your headshot won’t work for you. Headshots are a very big investment to an actor, sessions are expensive. You need to make your headshot work for you. It represents you and your character your style, your talent and it must reflect all these things. 

Natalie Dormer & Emma Rigby Rory Lewis London Headshots Actress Actors Photographer

Most of Rory’s headshot sessions with Celebrities last 15-20 minutes, this is all the time he is allotted to capture the stars of stage and screen. In this time Rory has to think fast, breaking the ice and directing these talented actors to capture the headshot which will represent them for the next 12 months to – 2 years. Just think about what Rory can do for you in 1 hour, creating a powerful headshot which will enable you to stand out from the crowd.

Look at Rory’s session with Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Patrick’s striking and undeniable acting ability is presented to the lens. Sharp and solemn expressions hold the viewer. If your image doesn’t inspire the viewer, provoke the imagination, it won’t stand out it will be viewed for a split second without consideration. 

 

It is time to think about your headshot photographer, don’t settle for the cheap, shabby, and quick passport-like photo service, which inexperienced photographers may offer. Select the finest Actors Headshot photographer available.

Delegates Feedback

 

“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!”

Stephen Nicholson Delegate

 

“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! “

Aidan Finn Delegate

 

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

Rory Lewis is a gem to work with! Both highly professional and easy going, he made me feel comfortable even in the short time I had booked. “He utilizes soft lighting, constant motion, and highlights your prominent/individual features. The result is incredibly unique portraits that showcase exactly who you are, not a generic headshot that could be anyone. I’m extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to work with Rory and recommend him highly!”

Headshots Sessions completed it was time to turn my attention to teaching with a Portrait Photography Masterclass on Saturday 16th September. Throughout the day students worked with three different subjects, who modelled throughout the day. Learning lighting, camera technique and direction. I will also be returning to LA with several workshops in October, from Portraiture, to Fine Art Nude.

 

Making use of all my time in LA I was able to fit in a few portrait sittings. The first with Actor Bo Foxworth and Actress Elyse Mirto, capturing a dual portrait for their upcoming theatre production. The siting was very interesting indeed as both Bo and Elyse played around with different characters both serious and comical.

Elyse Mirto & Bo Foxworth

The second sitting with veteran actor Greg Itzin. Itzin has appeared in guest starring roles on various television shows like in “MacGyver”. His most recent major role has been President Charles Logan on the popular television drama 24. He received a Tony Award nomination for his role in the Pulitzer Prize–winning play The Kentucky Cycle. Greg has a stunning facial profile, an actor of incredible skill and talent, Itzin needed very little direction. My idea to capture Greg as the contemptuous villain.

Greg Itzin Rory Lewis Los Angeles Portrait Photographer

The third and final sitting gave me the opportunity to add to my Caravaggisti Project. In these portraits I have attempted to emulate Caravaggio’s naturalism and dramatic lighting with photographic effect. The subject actor Adrian LaTourelle. Using harsh lighting to create super detail in skin tone, texture and colour and inventive art direction. Adrain screamed in rage, enabling me to capture the energy of the moment.

Actor Dominic Pace, has an incredible facial profile. Dominic booked a character actor’s headshots session at the Los Angeles Photography Studio in Burbank. Often casted as the villain or tough guy, Dominic opted for character shots, assuming various expressions to relay his casting profile.

 

Amazing job. Keeps the artist in motion so you stay loose. Highly recommended.

Fine Art Nude Workshops Los Angeles, (CA) & London, (England)

Fine Art Nude Photography Workshops

I’ve always been drawn to fine art nude photography as an opportunity to create art for the sake of art. No clients, no deadlines, no restrictions — just the human form as my canvas. While nude photography can be whatever you want it to be, when I teach workshops I coach my students to focus specifically on the fine art nude with an emphasis on light, shape, form, storytelling, and mood.

When you look at my work, I never want you to see a ‘naked photo’. Instead, I want you to see a creative exploration of photography with the nude form as part of the visual language and creative canvas. When you look at my work, you shouldn’t be looking at ‘body parts’ but instead perhaps the way the light wraps around shape of nude subject. I try to pass these same sensibilities onto the students of my workshops both in my instruction and the inspirational references I direct them to study whether classical paintings, art photographers, or fashion photographers.

Every year I teach fine art nude photography workshops both at my studio in London (England) and in Los Angeles (CA). These portfolio intensive nude workshops are limited to 12 delegates. I have several goals that I want to achieve with my students. First, I aim to educate. I want to help photographers understand how to manipulate the form to create the shapes they desire, and therefore gain a deeper understanding of posing. I want them to see (and experience) how the placement of light and choice of modifier change the appearance of the body, curves and musculature. I want to demonstrate the role of highlight and shadow in both sculpting and differentiating the form, and how his interplay of light and shadow becomes fundamental to fine art nude photography.

 

Next, I am to reduce (or eliminate) fears. At times people are uncomfortable with photographing nudes because of societal taboos that have been imposed. During my workshop I help my students to become comfortable with planning shoots, the etiquette of approaching and directing their subjects and more. It is extremely important for a photographer to be professional and confident with their subjects in order to create the type of imagery that is the goal of my workshops.

 

Finally (and probably just as importantly), I aim to inspire. Nude photography always pushes me to explore my creativity — I explore new lighting techniques, I make a mess with paint, I try more dramatic poses, I create unusual set or place my subjects in unexpected scenes. The nude is my creative canvas, and I often find that the creative explorations I experiment with in nude photography often creep back into my own portrait photography work.

 

Unfortunately for a variety of reasons (many unfounded or based on societies unnecessarily skewed perceptions of the nude form) I cannot share many of my fine art nude work on social media without destroying the integrity of the images by photoshopping out a nipple or adding censorship. Honestly, I think there is a clear different between ‘sexy boob’ and ‘art boob’, but of course that is an entirely different discussion.

Although I do not treat my workshops as shooting time for myself, I often take a few frames of the subjects in order to allow my students see me direct the models and also to allow me to provide a few frames of images to my models as an extra thank you for their hard work!

 

In one workshop we focused a lot on studio lighting for fine art nudes, and how to use the mood of the light to fit the theme of the nude or to tell the greater story. We also used studio lighting to create dramatic images that really focused on the nude form instead of a ‘naked subject’.

For some actors having their headshot captured can be an extremely nerve-racking experience, after all stills photography is an unnatural concept for actors. After-all actors are used to moving on stage and screen. For others it’s not such an ordeal; whichever it is for you the one thing that helps to get the best photos is time. Yes, Time and LOTS OF IT, this will ensure you are completely relaxed and will photograph at your best.

 

So after we have put the world to rights over a cup of coffee we will have plenty of time to work. I always like to start with a few test shots which we can view on the computer so that any necessary changes can be made. We then get to work in the studio for a time, this gives you a chance to get a feel of how I work and I can find out what works best for you.

 

Clothing and hairstyles can be changed whenever needed. (A Makeup Artist can be provided if Needed). From time to time I will show you photos so you have a clear idea of what is going on. We then take a series of outside shots; by this point, I will have a good idea what is best for you and you will feel even more relaxed.

Actors Headshots Los Angeles (California) Actors Headshots

Throughout the shoot, we will aim to get as many looks as we can, with clothes, different hairstyles, angles and emotions. The session will last around Two Hours and in that time I will take about 500 photos. I will then cut down the 500 to around 200/400 Depending on Your Package.

 

I shoot in colour and convert to black and white you receive both colour and black and white copies of your retouched images. You will receive your contact sheets on-line via your own private website within 24 hours.

 

Once you have chosen your two photos I will retouch and crop them for you. Changes can be made before you receive your final photos. With regards to airbrushing, I feel this is a very important area as too much can spoil a photo. This is why I spend a great deal of time working on your photos and like to include you in this process. To make sure you pick the right photos, which stand out for your Casting Profile Pages.

“Very Very Pleased ”

Written on: 08/03/2016 by JDerrington

I have had a few headshot sessions and photoshoots before and I hate having my picture taken. I was put immediately at ease and given slight directions to help change stance and also the thought process for each photo. The pictures themselves are of high quality (even before editing) and in terms of value for money, I would say that for photos of this quality and the quantity of images that you can get afterwards, is phenomenally good value. 

I can’t wait for 2 years down the line when I will need new ones. Thanks!

“Recently booked 2 Actor Head Shot sessions for my son and daughter with Rory, location was very easy to find with plenty of  parking around.

The sessions were very relaxed, and Rory’s direction of each shot really helped get the most out of the sessions.

Rory’s communication after the sessions was absolutely exemplary, everything was delivered exactly on time and of the highest standards.

I would highly recommend using Rory should anyone require his expertise again!”

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.
