“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!”

2012 Year in Review

Thank you to all of my family, friends, clients for making 2012 such an amazing time. It has been a great year and I am excited to update everyone on the happenings of the year.

 

I began the year on assignment in Barcelona with Episode Fashion Management, shooting a campaign for CEO Charles McDonald. It was a wonderful opportunity to explore the sites and make new friends in the cities creative circle.  I was also lucky to bring in the New Year in Barcelona celebrating in the famous Las Ramblas. I will be  returning to Spain at the end of January this coming year and look forward to the photoshoots and site seeing I have planned.

 (Rory Lewis)

Upon my return from Spain I embarked on one of the most challenging assignments of my photographic career, being commissioned by Princes Foods to shoot over 4000 items of Product Photography. It sounds simple, but the assignment required all the products to be shoot in unique compositions. The task took over a month to collate and complete, but the results looked stunning, and since the assignment I have gained a great deal of product photography clients. Now being able to offer a 24 hour turnaround in most cases.

 

 

With the completion of my Princes assignments I was able to dedicate some time to other projects being commissioned to shoot singer Nikki Belle; And with the help of Stylist Rikki Finlay and Makeup Artist Nita Malata. I planned several fashion and beauty tests in the spring to update my portfolio. Working particularly with Oxygen Models in London and shooting mainly male models as my book was lacking in this area.

 

Testing is a very costly business but it is essential for professional photographers to test, so new ideas and ways of working can be explored. This in turn can improve your portfolio and show to your clients your skills and talent.

 

2012 has been the 10th year of my professional photography career and I have enjoyed being commissioned to shoot a wide variety of projects. I continue to offer Model Portfolio & Actors Headshot Services and throughout the year, have worked with dozens of new and established actors and models to start or update their head shots & portfolios.

 

It has been very rewarding to help new models and actors to find their way into the industry through my photography and many have gone on to gain work through some of the UK’s top Agencies. One of the highlights of 2012 has been a shoot with Coronation Street actress Holly Quin Ankrah.

 

2012 was the year I  decided to hold my first exhibition (Keeping Abreast) hosted by the Bluecoat Gallery in Liverpool. I invited my friends, family and clients to view my work, and opened the exhibition to the public. I really enjoyed speaking with clients and members of the public about my photography, gaining new opinions and feedback.

Rory Lewis 2012 Exhibition

If you missed the exhibition you can view the highlights in the video below. The event raised £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support and I thank everyone who donated. I will be holding another exhibition in 2013 so pleased keep subscribe to my feed for more news on the event.

 

One of the areas I specialise in as a photographer is Hair & Beauty Photography and every year I gain a great deal of Hair Salon Commissions from Salon’s looking to update their marketing material and styling books and enter the Wella and L’Oreal competitions. This year I was delighted to work work with, Vidal Sassoon, Pierre Alexandre, Beauty Works, Love the Salon and L’Oreal to name a few. Creating some wonderful photography and Marketing Material.  

 

When a photographer and model are on the same wavelength great things happen. This has occurs often in my hair  & beauty portraiture photography. The capturing of a perfect portrait moment a split second when the model and photographer connect is a rewarding experience.

 

Paris Rory Lewis Photographer2012 is also the year I turned 30, and to mark the event, I decided to treat myself, starting with a dual city break in London and Paris. It was in Paris I proposed to my now fiancé Alexandra. We had a wonderful time in both London & Paris exploring the cities sites and taking in the Parisian Culture. You can check out my city break snaps on My Blog.

 

Returning from Paris,  I arranged another birthday treat purchasing tickets to Star Trek London. Being a Closet Trekkie, I took the opportunity to see all the Five Captains on stage and meet actors William Shatner, David Warner, Michael Dorn, Andrew Robinson and Avery Brooks having my photos taken with several of the actors.

Rory Lewis Celebrity Photographer William Shatner

After pretty much a four week birthday celebration of trips and indulgence I returned to work, receiving several assignments, from photographing Pasta to Electronic Cigarettes . I was also commissioned by sports online retailer Kit Bag  to shoot footballer Robbie Savage for a Festive Christmas Marketing Campaign.

Throughout 2012 I expanded my Photography School holding one day and weekend courses in areas from Portraiture to Fashion photography, and it has been wonderful to pass on skills and knowledge to both professional and amateur photographers. In 2013, I will be continuing to offer Photography Courses and One on One Tuition sessions throughout the year so please check out 2013 Timetable.

 

2012 has been a very exciting year, and I look forward to seeing what 2013 has in store, I have taken a little break over the festive period to relax my creative juices and look forward to returning to work in January with many new projects on the horizon.
