Bill Brochtrup Actors Headshots LA February 2018 Sessions

Bill Brochtrup,  stage, film, and television actor is immensely talented. Best known for playing “John Irvin,” the cheerful administrative aide on ABC TV’s Emmy Award-winning police drama, NYPD Blue. Along with the rest of the cast, he was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble.

 

Bill arranged an update of his Actors Headshots Portfolio at the Studio in Glendale.  Throughout the session, I directed Bill through multiple looks. From the no nonsense detective to the Father and even the complex villain. I believe headshots should focus on ‘Actors in the Act’. Relaying emotions and feelings to the lens. Thus demonstrating their creative ability. I’m sure with this new collection of headshots Bill will do very well indeed.

Actor Rufus Sewell, London & Los Angeles Portrait Photographer Rory Lewis

Making use of all my time in LA I was able to fit in a Portrait Sitting with Actor Rufus Sewell. The sitting had been on the cards for quite some time and I was lucky Rufus was in town on a break from filming The Man In The High Castle. I’m only sharing one portrait from the sitting as the below has been acquired by The National Portrait Gallery in London. The shoot was very memorable, I’ve admired his work for many years and the chance to direct and photograph Rufus was a wonderful experience. The other portraits will be displayed at an exhibition of my work next year so stay tuned.

Fiona Lakeland, Facebook Review

“I am so glad I decided to shoot with Rory when he was in LA this September! I signed up for one of his headshot mini sessions, and though we only shot for 30 minutes, Rory sent me over 250 images to choose from.

I was completely surprised by how many good, and TRULY INTERESTING shots there were. Not only are these photos some of the best headshots I’ve ever had, but they actually look like me… like the real me… like the personality me.

Shortly after starting to use these new shots, I booked an awesome short film playing a role I never would have seen myself playing.

Rory was a true pleasure to work with, he was very professional and made me feel completely at ease. I received all my photos the same day, and his turnaround time and pricing for retouching was fast, very fair, and the quality is excellent.

I highly recommend shooting with Rory if you can!!”

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.
