Rory Lewis is the only independent professional photographer in Liverpool & Manchester who specialises solely in Modelling Portfolios and studio portrait photoshoots. Unlike impersonal makeover studios that hire cheap photographers, have mediocre photography and hit you with hidden costs, a professional photo shoot with Rory is a rewarding and comprehensive experience. Rory has outstanding feedback and a wealth of experience to offer.
Clients regularly visit Rory from all over the UK and abroad. Each photoshoot in Liverpool or Manchester with Rory is unique, whether it is a Model Portfolio, Dance portfolio, Actors headshots, Glamour Photo shoot or – most typically – just lovely portraits for regular people who aren’t models or performers and want beautiful professional photos to capture them at their best in a comfortable, relaxing private Liverpool or Manchester studio.
There are packages to suit all budgets, at clear, attractive prices that include all the photos. No experience necessary. Please check our Rory’s Photoshoot Services Page for links to all his packages and services.
I have been fortunate to work with some wonderful Acting Talent over the past few weeks, shooting Actors Headshots and several have been very gracious in leaving me feedback via my Review Centre Website.
“Rory made me feel relaxed and comfortable in my Actors Headshots Session. He was warm and professional and his experience shows, as he was able to help me with my facial expressions with his creative scenarios Would highly recommend Rory Lewis and I will return.”
“I was very pleased with the result of my Actors Headshots session with Rory Lewis – several photographers over the years have not quite managed to get the right shot for me owing to my rather odd features.
However, Rory managed to get several excellent pics, which really captured me the way I wanted.
Over the past few weeks I have been shooting a great deal of Model Portfolios. It’s rewarding to help new models produce a great portfolio, agencies and potential clients will notice.
“You only get one chance to make a good first impression.”
A Great Model Portfolio is your key to getting spotted in the highly competitive world of modelling. Your Model Portfolio is many times the first contact a potential client or agency has with you. This means that your portfolio images are extremely important to your modelling career.
Models that don’t have a professional portfolio, find it hard to get work. It’s a simple fact that being more relaxed and having fun during a model photo session will produce better images. I take time to see that you enjoy every minute from the time you begin with makeup till the final Model Portfolio is created.
“Rory Lewis is an established Fashion Photographer with over 10 years experience and today works closely with a number of model agencies to shoot content for models portfolios. Each month he is available for a limited number of sessions to shoot models’ portfolios, for both new and established models.”
“When you book a portfolio with Rory Lewis Photographer my service does not stop with just producing your portfolio. I can also help point you in the right direction with model agencies and the next steps to take, once your model portfolio is created.”

L’oreal commissioned me this month to shoot a selection Product/Pack Shotsfor a new product line. Not happy with their previous photography I wanted to raise the standard and create shots with WOW Factor. I look forward to working with the Brand on Future Projects.
Over the past month, I have been shooting a great deal of Product Photographyand my most recent project really stands out. A client commissioned me to shoot a new line of Electronic Cigarettes. For use on posters and their website I spent the day shooting their new product line.
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 2012.
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.
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.
Nikki Belle Photoshoot
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.
Keeping Abreast 2012 Exhibition
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.
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.
Hair & Beauty 2012
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.
2012 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.
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.
Robbie Savage for Kitbags
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.
All in All 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.
Another day, another exciting photo shoot at the Manchester studio! This time a Dance Portfolio session with dancer Katrina who has just returned from several months performing on cruise ship.
Katrina wanted to update her Dance Portfolio for castings next year, and we spent the afternoon working on several looks from Contemporary to Jazz styles. If you are looking to Start a Dance Portfolio or need an update please get in touch I have a great affordable package.
