Event Details



"Fine Art Portrait Photographer Rory Lewis, is running a workshop focused on recreating the work of the Renaissance Painter Caravaggio."

(Actor René Auberjonois Rory Lewis Photographer 2017)

Renaissance portraiture and the use of chiaroscuro by the masters has been of immense inspiration to my photographic style. For those unfamiliar, chiaroscuro is an oil painting technique, developed during the Renaissance.  The technique uses strong tonal contrasts between light and dark to model three-dimensional forms. Artists such as Caravaggio used chiaroscuro for dramatic effect. Painting vivid religious depictions of light and shadow.

The Incredulity of Saint Thomas by Caravaggio


Actor Tony Amendola Rory Lewis Fine Art Portrait Photographer

Recently I have attempted to emulate Caravaggio’s naturalism and dramatic lighting with photographic effect. (Above Sir Patrick Stewart, Rory Lewis Photographer 2017) Creating a series of portraits with super detail of skin tone, texture and colour. Using inventive art direction I opted for vivid and stark expressions. Over the summer i'll be teaching a workshop to help you re-create these portraits. On the day I will feature THREE Professional models with amazing bone structure.  The workshop will give you the unique opportunity to learn new skills in lighting and direction to create your own Vivid & Dramatic Caravaggio Style Portfolio.
