RJ Lewis Photography Tells Your Story

By Jake Levin

Portrait photography is more than just a business for RJ Lewis: it's his passion.

He owns his own company, RJ Lewis Photography, and is based out of Brooklyn, N.Y. But he'll travel far and wide in search of storytelling opportunities, ones which he can accomplish with just a single image.

"The best way I can describe what I do is that I photograph real people in a way that is very hard to find," RJ said. "I want you to see the true you and when you see yourself you can truly see your true beauty."

RJ takes pictures of people from all walks of life, not specializing in one particular style. On one end of the spectrum, he's photographed actors. RJ stays true to his common man roots as well, having photographed weddings and done children and family portraits. Modeling and headshots are another area of expertise for RJ.

What separates RJ from other photographers, he feels, is the way he views his clients. Most photographers look at people as money, RJ said, and will do the bare minimum because it is just that for them.

"For me, every client is unique and I try to take the time and find out as much about them as possible so we can create something amazing and like no other," RJ said.

Photography is one of the very few arts where a person can be moved through a single image, RJ believes, and that's what he shoots for, literally, in each session.

Inspiration comes from a variety of places for RJ, who searches through the viewfinder of his camera to see things in a way no one else can. But perhaps nothing drives RJ more than his wife and son, who inspire him every single day to get up and tell another story.

"Without them I do not know where I would be," RJ said.
