Birmingham Portrait PhotographerRLWhiteclear 20 1024x510 - Home


I shoot modern portraits that tell personal stories of YOU and those special to you.  Celebrating personal growth and beauty, treasured connections and visual narratives of LOVE. 

When was the last time you were professionally photographed? Or when was the last time you had images of yourself and your family, that you loved?     

Through tailor-made portrait sessions in studio or on-location, we will work together to produce wonderful images that you will treasure now and for years to come!  I am a Birmingham Portrait Photographer.. 

                                                           Let me tell YOUR story!!

Raph is an incredibly talented and creative photographer with a fantastic eye for detail for capturing the right mood in all sorts of settings. He made me feel relaxed straight away and I was over the moon at the results of my shoot!

Are you a business owner, SME or digital entrepreneur?

I can help to improve your marketing and appeal to their target audience by providing high-quality, personal and engaging content, specific to your brand.  With relevant imagery you can communicate what you do and who you are successfully.

Shooting Personal Branding, Headshots and social-media-ready collections for you, will enhance your online presence and boost and strengthen your brand.

Afterall, If YOU’RE not telling the story of YOUR brand, someone else is.  Or worse still, YOUR telling the story of someone else’s brand!!

As a visual storyteller, this is what I do, let me help you tell YOUR story!

Raphael Lionel will always be my go to studio for photography.. I felt looked after, understood and he made the effort to get to know me.

When seeing the edits.. I was more than impressed with the quality.. so much so that I purchased more than I initially wanted!
