I shoot modern portraits that tell personal stories of YOU and those special to you.  Portraits that celebrate 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 my jewellery quarter 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!

Birmingham Headshots 

Are you an Actor, Musician, 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 and effectively.

Shooting Personal Branding, Headshots and social-media-ready collections for you, 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, so, 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!

A London Wedding for Arthur and Jessica

A London Wedding always has the potential for a little something special with its history, culture, and landmarks.  For Arthur and Jessica however, there was nothing needed, more than the two of them and their guests. 

A Black Country Wedding for Jadon and Anjana

A Black Country wedding for Jadon and Anjana was a fitting testimony to their young love story.  Much to the delight of their family and friends, this was a day of emotion, excitement, and elegance.

A Birmingham Portrait shoot for Jahziah

A Birmingham Portrait shoot out of the studio for Jahziah, some months ago. Jahziah did really well despite him not having had a shoot before.

A Witley Court Wedding for Andrew and Jane

A Witley Court Wedding for Andrew and Jane in Worcester.  The amazing Italianate design of Witley Court dating from the 17th century played background for the couple’s portraits and the Great Witley church with its baroque theme, for their vows.

A Birmingham City Wedding for Michael and Vivene

A Birmingham city wedding was the order of the day for Michael and Vivene in the summer. After several decades together, they both made it official taking their vows at their local church in Smethwick. It was obvious to all how happy this made them and their family and friends.
