Lt General Poffley Portrait Sitting

Military Portrait Photographer Rory Lewis Lt General Mark Poffley British ArmyLt General Mark Poffley O.B.E very graciously accepted my invitation to sit for a portrait at the M.O.D London Headquarters in WhiteHall. Poffley was commissioned into the Royal Army Ordnance Corps in 1985. The General has served in the British Army for 31 years being deployed in every major conflict in the past three decades from The Gulf War, Bosnian War, Insurgency in the Republic of Macedonia, War in Afghanistan and the Iraq War. My aim was to capture a portrait of Poffley as a leader, taking inspiration from Military Portrait Artists such as George Dawe with strong and bold expressions and body language, I also shot from lower angles to emphasise height. If you are in need of a portrait photographer with a historical perspective please contact me for a quote, I am available throughout  the year in the the UK & USA.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson

Working with Politicians has always been an exciting prospect for me, and this Month Mayor Joe Anderson Sat for an Official Portrait at my Liverpool Studio. Joe being the first Executive Mayor of Liverpool I wanted to present him as a leader, bold, approachable and determined.

 

Being a History Graduate, it has always fascinated me, how historical artists such as Holbein portrayed Leaders, and I took some inspiration from the Renaissance, let me know what you think of Portraits.
