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.

“Excellent photography workshop. We went through 8 different light set ups starting with a single light source and ending up with two light sources with the tightest control of the light. There was a lot to take in and was very happy with the photos I took. The breadth of the material covered was excellent. Very pleased to have attended. Thanks Rory!”

“Chilled learning”

“Rory taught, inspired and chatted all the way through the session. He kept it interactive without the pressure new learning can often bring. No question out of bounds and very open about all aspects of his approach.
I came away with a new appreciation of the power of good lighting and how to make it happen. 
Highly recommended”

“Rory was my tutor for a one-day Portrait Masterclass seminar, and I have to say that it was inspiring, informative and hugely useful. Rory is a natural tutor….He clearly has complete mastery of the technical aspects and fantastic creativity, but most importantly he coaches in a good humoured, informal and relaxed manner that puts everyone at their ease, and makes for a fun experience, whilst covering a lot of ground.”
