Actor Stephen Graham is an English film and television actor and fellow scouser. Who is best known for his roles as Tommy in the film Snatch (2000), Andrew “Combo” Gascoigne in This Is England (2006), Billy Bremner in The Damned United (2009), notorious bank robber Baby Face Nelson in Public Enemies (2009), Scrum in the Pirates of the Caribbean films and he starred as Al Capone in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.
Stephen accepted my invitation to sit for a portrait at the London Studio last week. I’ve admired his work for many years. Graham is a screen icon, exceptionally talented and known for playing no-nonsense gritty characters. I aimed to capture Stephens métier in my portraits, asking him to pose as emotionless, then changing to capture fierce and angry expressions.

Britain’s Got Talent Star Beau Dermott is poised for West End Superstardom. The young singer who already in talks about making her London stage debut has been showered with praise by some of the biggest names in musical theatre.
I received a call from Beau’s parents this week who arranged a portrait sitting for Beau’s first headshots at the Liverpool Studio. The photoshoot was The Star’s first professional sitting.
Beau is no stranger to being in front of the camera, no doubt from her amazing stage performances on Britains’ got talent. Breezing through the headshot session I was able to direct Beau with ease to capture a series of wonderful frames.
Actress Natalie Dormer, star of Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games and The Tudors sat for a portrait at the London Studio several weeks ago. I wrote to Natalie inviting her to sit for my Expressive Portraits Project just over a year ago; it just goes to show how many letters and requests she receives. Natalie is exceptionally talented with an incredible natural beauty. As a realist portrait photographer Natalie was a little apprehensive of my style. In the modern world people are obsessed with removing the detail through airbrushing.
My style is to preserve even line every mark every mole. I try to present my subjects as they really are, flaws and all, while allowing for moments of candidness and vulnerability. Less austere and more deliberate than a mug shot, my work often brings facial features into high relief, allowing expressiveness to recede and making the sitter seem somehow up-close and removed at the same time. Natalie indulged me, enabling me to capture a series of wonderful frames. Her apprehension turned to excitement when she viewed the final results which edified her unique and Natural Beauty.

I contacted Rory for an Actors Headshot Session and I was not disappointed. Rory was extremely pleasant and welcoming . As for the session itself I couldnt have felt more comfortable about my shots. He kept me visually updated throughout the shoot with how they were turning out so that we could adjust and tweek things to get the final shots I was looking for!
As luck would have it this week while on assignment in Los Angeles Actor Mark Margolis, and his wife Actress Jacqueline Margolis were staying in the same Studio City hotel. I recognised Mark in the lobby having a sneaky cigarette, and introduced myself, he was very approachable and chatty. Mark has starred in dozens & dozens of films, from 1492 to Hannibal, The Wrestler and of course Scarface. I was very keen to talk about his role in the Television Series Breaking Bad, as the notorious man with the Bell, Hector “Tio” Salamanca. Mentioning to Mark I was shooting in LA, I asked if he would like to sit for a portrait.
Delighted with my offer of a portrait sitting mark accepted and from a chance encounter I was able to capture some wonderful frames of Mark and his wife Jacqueline, who was also happy to sit for a portrait. It was an amazing experience to work with an Actor of such talent, and it goes to show great things can happen just by chance.
CRUK commissioned Rory Lewis to Photograph their latest campaign to promote awareness of Bowl Cancer. The images are now all over the North West on buses, posters and campaign literature; I hope the images will make the public more aware of this important message.
Rory Lewis Photography Studio managed every part of the campaign from locating models to location, styling, equipment and retouching. If you are in need of a commercial photoshoot please get in touch, not campaign is too small or too big.
